It's only APRIL, but this stunt has to be in the runnng for any "Most Unique Station Thank-You" award. The DUPAGE COUNTY (of ILLINOIS) Sheriff's Dept. has thanked CLEAR CHANNEL Top 40/Mainstream WKSC (KISS FM)/CHICAGO and its listeners for voting the DUPAGE COUNTY JAIL as "CHICAGO’s Best Jail."
Morning host DREX held a contest for "DREX’s Best of the Chi 2010." Out of 150 categories, listeners were given three weeks to nominate who they felt was best in each category. After the nomination period listeners were given two weeks where they were able to vote on the agencies that were nominated. Out of the five jails that were nominated, the DUPAGE COUNTY SHERIFF’S OFFICE JAIL FACILITY was voted #1 in the CHICAGOLAND area.
Its staememnt read: "Sheriff JOHN ZARUBA and the members of the DUPAGE COUNTY SHERIFF’S OFFICE would like to thank KISS FM, DREX in the Morning and all the listeners for nominating and voting our jail as the Best in CHICAGO."
