CANYON MEDIA Classic Rock KZHK (95.9 THE HAWK)/ST. GEORGE, UT morning show host JON SMITH of the JON SMITH MORNING SHOW is offering to "BUY BACK YOUR FIREWORKS" in exchange for movie tickets due to the current fire danger in place across the state.
KZHK will give listeners 50 cents on the dollar in "MOVIE BUCKS" that they bring to the station on TUESDAY (JULY 3rd).
According to KZHK PD JON SMITH, "[We] hope to discourage people from using fireworks on their own at least until the danger subsides. I think with the fires we’ve seen already this year we need to say ‘Hey, let’s be smart and go see a movie instead of burning our state down'."
