WHO's Simon Conway Becomes The Powerball

CLEAR CHANNEL Talk WHO-A/DES MOINES afternoon host SIMON CONWAY caught POWERBALL fever FRIDAY in an unusual way: the talker dressed in a red POWERBALL costume for his entire show. Listeners watching on the station's webcam saw CONWAY in a spherical red outfit talking about the almost $600 million jackpot which was won by a ticket purchaser in ZEPHYRHILLS, FL on SATURDAY.
CONWAY said, "The comments from our webcam and iHEARTRADIO audiences along with every line in the place lit up for the entire time I was inside more than justified what we did. It was hot, it was tricky, but it was worth it," he said, noting that he had to have someone else put his headset on his head for him.
POWERBALL is operated by the MULTI-STATE LOTTERY ASSOCIATION, based in URBANDALE, IA, near DES MOINES.
