WEDNESDAY night (5/13) saw the crowning of season 14 AMERICAN IDOL winner (and WEST HAVEN, CT favorite son) NICK FRADIANI. The nearby iHEARTMEDIA stations were vocal cheerleaders throughout the competition, across all brands -- Top 40s WKSS and WKCI, Country WWYZ, Adult Hits WHCN, Sports WUCS and WAVZ, plus News/Talk WELI.
WHCN middayer RENEE DININO broadcast live from LOS ANGELES to cover the festivities this week and also call in to each station’s shows with members of the FRADIANI family and inside info. Voting for NICK was promoted with a dedicated page on each station's website.
DININO had hosted the viewing parties at the SPOTLIGHT THEATERS in downtown HARTFORD for over two months, following NICK’s journey on IDOL. While she was with the stars in L.A. this week, WKSS morning co-host GAVIN stepped up to the plate and hosted the finale with FOX CONNECTICUT.
In a huge score, the first interview with NICK after he was named AMERICAN IDOL went to DININO, and you can watch it here.
