ENTERCOM COMMUNICATIONS has announced that RYAN AINSWORTH is the winner in its "SING LIKE BRAD PAISLEY" contest." The company is reporting that they received hundreds of entries and nearly 700,000 online votes during the 4-week long contest.
AINSWORTH is a listener of ENTERCOM Country WBEE/ROCHESTER, NY. Other stations participating included KWJJ/PORTLAND, OR, WGGY/WILKES BARRE, PA, WDAF/KANSAS CITY and others.
"ENTERCOM’s ‘SING LIKE’ series once again was a tremendous success. The strength of our brands and their unique fan engagement was evident throughout this competition, and is another testament to the power of local radio," said ENTERCOM SVP/Programming PAT PAXTON.
"I can’t thank WBEE 92.5 WOLF and ENTERCOM enough," said winner RYAN AINSWORTH. "Thanks to everyone who voted for me, and thanks to the judges who are giving me an amazing opportunity. The longer I've been in this business, the more I realize that no one ‘makes it’ on their own- this just may be my opportunity. The chance to sing live with BRAD in concert will be an amazing thrill, I don’t know yet if I’m more excited or frightened. Also, the chance to sit down with executives from SONY MUSIC will be a once in a lifetime opportunity to showcase my talents."
Among the prizes that AINSWORTH wins is roundtrip airfare for two and two-night hotel accommodations for two to one of the stops on PAISLEY’s U.S. tour, plus a trip backstage. You can check out AINSWORTH’s winning entry at www.SingLikeBradPaisley.com.
