CLEAR CHANNEL Top 40 WIHT (HOT 99-5)/WASHINGTON morning guy KANE asked listeners to send pics of their under-1-year-old babies for a $5,000 cash prize. According to CC/DC OM JEFF KAPUGI, "We were hoping to get 100 or so, and we ended up getting 640!" They'll hold 26 preliminary rounds, and the top two vote-getters from each will move on to a round of 52. Then they'll pare it down to a final 12 and run it parallel with "American Idol," finishing up in mid-MAY.
KAPUGI tells ALL ACCESS, "The page views are sick! The last three days have been record days for www.hot995.com and [as of yesterday] we expect to top 500,000 page views!"
