Extreme summer heat causes hundreds of heat exhaustion/stroke-related illnesses each year in MEMPHIS, largely due to improper hydration. This year, to help local listeners keep their cool and stay hydrated, CLEAR CHANNEL Top 40 KWNW (101.9 RADIO NOW) will give away 100,000 bottles of water to area residents.
From JUNE 25th through SEPTEMBER 3rd, special RADIO NOW labeled bottles of water will be distributed throughout the area at various outdoor locations. In addition to keeping listeners hydrated, every fan that recycles a 101.9 RADIO NOW water bottle into the designated bin will be entered to win a VIP trip package for two to see PITBULL in SAN FRANCISCO. 101.9 RADIO NOW bins and staff will confirm entry details upon recycling.
"101.9 RADIO NOW is committed to serving the local MEMPHIS community by helping them stay cool and safe throughout the hot summer months," said PD DINO CONARD adding, "Fans will jump at the opportunity for this one-of-a-kind VIP experience while also staying hydrated and recycling their empty bottles." Memphis market manager MORGAN BOHANNON expressed similar sentiments, saying "101.9 RADIO NOW is all about 'now' with both music and community needs. With MEMPHIS facing a long hot summer, it’s only fitting that we are the ones who bring the relief."
