ENTERCOM Top 40 WFBC (B93)/GREENVILLE, SC PD CHASE MURPHY knows the value of marketing, so he's got a three-ring circus going on.
Ring #1: It's "THE NEXT BIG THING IN RADIO" as 1,200 listeners turned out for auditions over 10 days to win a three-month contract with the station. MURPHY interviewed the final 15 and narrowed it down to five. They hit the air on SUNDAYS from 5-10p, and each MONDAY on the HAWK & TOM morning show a different contestant is booted.
Ring #2: "THE LAST CHANCE SUMMER DANCE" is set for WEDNESDAY (9/27) with a free concert at CLEMSON's LITTLE JOHN COLISEUM featuring HEADLY, NEED TO BREATHE, MARIO VAZQUEZ and ASHELY PARKER ANGEL. Some 7,000 listeners are expected!
Ring #3: "THE FIRST TIME MOM & DAD CONTEST," where CHASE and his bride CHRISTAL are the winners. They are gonna be parental units come DECEMBER. It's a little girl -- her name is pending. Congrats!
