KQRS/Minneapolis Honoring Veterans With Special Programming This Veterans Day
November 7, 2016 at 3:51 PM (PT)
CUMULUS MEDIA Classic Rock KQRS/MINNEAPOLIS is doing a special broadcast to recognize and honor MINNESOTA military veterans on VETERANS DAY this FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 11th. KQ’s “Military Takeover” begins FRIDAY morning with a series of guests including World War II veterans, Purple Heart recipients, along with members of the Freedom Alliance and The Real Warriors.
KQRS will also talk with representatives from the AMERICAN LEGION discussing their “Shop, Ship & Share” initiative where consumers can donate needed items to our troops and have them shipped overseas during the holidays.
At 10a (CT) following the KQ MORNING SHOW the “Takeover” begins with every hour hosted by a different MINNESOTA Military Veteran. From 10a until 5p, every hour will feature an “Honorary Military Guest DJ”. Each “honorary guest DJ” will receive a digital download of their radio show as a keepsake and to share with friends, family and military colleagues. Check out the military guest DJs here.
The Military Takeover was an idea developed by OM SCOTT JAMESON who said, "I wanted to do something special for the Vets who have been so loyal to KQRS all these years. Hosting your own radio show is once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that will be a lot of fun for the vets and for our listeners."
