HUBBARD RADIO Hot AC WTMX/CHICAGO will sponsor an on-air and online contest called “ERIC, KATHY and Me $20G Selfie” which will give listeners the chance to win a grand prize of $20,000 for just submitting a selfie.
Listeners can enter by taking a selfie and include ERIC & KATHY somewhere in the shot. It can be a cardboard cutout of them, their name spelled out in bottle caps, a shot with them in person, anything ... they just need to be included somewhere in the photo to be considered for the contest. Listeners then have to post the selfie to FACEBOOK, TWITTER, INSTAGRAM with #EK20GSelfie.
A total of 20 Selfies will be selected at random from all posted and put to a public vote the week of SEPTEMBER 22nd,. The 20 qualifiers will join THE MIX on site (along with the general public) for a live ERIC & KATHY Morning Show broadcast on FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 26th from ROSEMONT's MB FINANCIAL PARK ENTERTAINMENT DISTRICT where the top vote-getter will be unveiled and awarded the $20,000 cash prize.
“This contest is the perfect vehicle for listeners to show their pride and passion for the ERIC & KATHY Morning Show with an amazing reward!" WTMX Marketing Dir. DAVE KARWOWSKI said. "It has been embraced by the likes of SIR PAUL MCCARTNEY, WARREN BUFFET, THE POPE and denounced by the QUEEN OF ENGLAND. Who better than ERIC & KATHY to take on one of the web’s more superficial trends – the selfie. In the end, we hope this will help drive a deeper level of listener engagement with the show.”
