This morning (9/25), DES MOINES RADIO GROUP Hot AC KSTZ (STAR 102.5)/DES MOINES's BIG KEN and COLLEEN had a "BATHROOM SCALE DESTRUCTION PARTY." Twenty-five STAR listeners gathered at the station and watched with delight as their bathroom scales were destroyed by a car crusher.
COLLEEN KELLY of the STAR 102.5 morning show commented, "I had an epiphany over the weekend. I’ve had a love/hate relationship with my bathroom scale, and it was time for me to end it, once and for all ... This was about women no longer being a slave to the scale. I’m a healthy, 32 year-old woman who has been chasing a silly number for 15 years. I take good care of my body and should not leave final judgment up to a machine, and neither should our listeners ... I already feel 10 pounds lighter -- and nothing can prove that wrong!"
BIG KEN added, "It was a smashing success! These are tough times and you need cheap entertainment ... and Lord knows we’re qualified."
