The story at www.hot101.com is true. CUMULUS Top 40 WHOT (HOT 101)/YOUNGSTOWN PD JOHN TROUT tells ALL ACCESS, "I was given orders by promotions not to mention that the ABC EXTREME HOME MAKEOVER CREW was coming to YOUNGSTOWN to do a show. So I did not tell anyone. Including the HOT 101 WAKE UP CREW.
"Unfortunately when the design team rolled into town listeners started calling HOT 101. Morning stunt guy JIM LOBOY hopped in the HOT STREET CRUISER to investigate. And sure enough LOBOY was rolling up and down the street honking and passing out HOT 101 stickers, while the family inside had not been told yet that they'd been selected for an n EXTREME HOME MAKEOVER."
TROUT continued, "LOBOY was informed by a giant man from ABC to `get outta Dodge immediately or the whole episode would be blown.' Fortunately the family was still asleep. They awoke `surprised' and are now in DISNEYWORLD, while the episode is currently being shot in YOUNGSTOWN. LOBOY took a 1 day self-imposed suspension from the air for his `extreme home screw up' . I still have not been told that I can mention they're in town! Can I?"
