KBKS Morning Team Member Hits The "Jackpot"
March 31, 2006 at 3:46 PM (PT)
CBS RADIO Top 40 KBKS (KISS 106.1)/SEATTLE morning duo JACKIE & BENDER show member SAMMI DAVIS announced this morning that, after years of playing the lottery (and years of being made fun of by BENDER), she hit the jockpot last night! She informed everyone that she won $20,000 via a WASHINGTON state lottery scratch ticket.
BENDER immediately went into "give some of it to the audience" mode and, after hours of harassment, SAMMI gave in. She offered up $1,000 of her winnings to the listener with the most frivolous way to spend it. Over 600 emails and phone calls poured in over the next hour! At 9:15a, she narrowed it down to 5 listeners, and was ready to pick a winner.
And then it happened ... "April Fools!" she said. Not only was the audience fooled, she got JACKIE (only BENDER was in on it) and she also caught the attention of the state lottery commission, who called in with congratulations.
