Hire Gregg And Michelle, Win A Prize
April 27, 2009 at 6:15 AM (PT)
What do you have to do to get a job in this economy? Veteran personalities GREGG HENSON and MICHELE MCKORMICK are offering anybody who hires them or refers them for a position on any station a "cash and rewards" program that includes incentives like trips to LOS CABOS, tickets for the annual MICHIGAN-OHIO STATE football rivalry game, and even a home-cooked (by HENSON's wife) meal at HENSON's house. The hosts are also offering to donate theior first paychecks to the charity of their new employer's choice.
"This is a tough market and any little bit we can do to incentivize a radio station to hire us, we are prepared to do," said HENSON, who worked with MCKORMICK at CBS RADIO's Talk WKRK (now Sports WXYT-A-F) and whose resume includes CLEAR CHANNEL Sports WDFN-A and CBS Sports WXYT-A/DETROIT, GREATER MEDIA Sports WPEN-A/PHILADELPHIA, and SIMMONS Sports KZNX-A-KWNX-A (1530/1260 ESPN RADIO) and CLEAR CHANNEL Sports KVET-A (AM 1300 THE ZONE)/AUSTIN. "You’ve got to cut through the clutter and prove your value that is why we are putting our money, literally, where our mouths are."
"The old ways of looking for a job no longer work, employers need to see you in action before they decide to hire you," added MCKORMICK, who worked at WVTI/GRAND RAPIDS before her run in DETROIT with HENSON. "We think this demonstrates our creativity and unconventional nature. It is why the show works."
