WHBC Makes A Loyal Listener Happy

It's all's well that end's well for NEXT MEDIA Hot AC WHBC (MIX 94.1)/CANTON. The station got some tough treatment (NET NEWS 6/24) in the local press after they ran a contest giving away a VIP package for a listener to attend the BON JOVI concert scheduled for JULY 14th. However, the show was canceled -- leaving disappointed fans -- and disappointed contest winners.
But PD JOHN STEWART was working hard behind the scenes, and told ALL ACCESS, "As soon as we got wind of a potential problem, we went right to work with an alternate plan. It took a bit longer than we'd have liked to secure an alternate prize, but after speaking with the record company, we came up with a great trip to CHICAGO for SARAH HARKNESS.
"My thanks to MANNY SIMON, and everyone at ISLAND RECORDS, and to SARAH HARKNESS for being a terrific sport.
"And, for the rest of the ticket winners, we've secured a pair of seats for them at an upcoming CLEVELAND BROWNS' home game."
STEWART was able to secure VIP tickets for HARKNESS and a guest to see BON JOVI on JULY 12th in THE WINDY CITY. The station also offered the winner entry into the official BON JOVI preshow VIP party, which includes:
* Separate Preshow VIP Lounge
* VIP Preshow Open Bar
* VIP Preshow Buffet
* Preshow Prizes & Giveaways -- Including Memorabilia & Limited Edition Items
* Dedicated On-Site VIP Preshow Host
* Exclusive On-Site VIP Perks
* VIP Priority Check-In
* Separate VIP Entrance
* Exclusive BON JOVI VIP Merchandise
* Exclusive BON JOVI VIP Gift
* Souvenir BON JOVI Tour Program
* Commemorative BON JOVI VIP Laminate & Matching Lanyard
