Fitz Causes A Ruckus With Cat-Sized April Fool's Prank
April 1, 2011 at 3:08 PM (PT)
ENTERCOM Country KKWF/SEATTLE and KBWF/SAN FRANCISCO morning star FITZ, according to PD MIKE PRESTON, caused thousands of drivers to pull over during their during their morning commute this morning.
“From 6:08- 9a (PT) this morning (04/01), FITZ played the sound of a cat meowing throughout the entire morning every 25-45 seconds,” said PRESTON. “The cat sound was played throughout every element of the show and was never acknowledged. The phones were flooded the entire show with listeners asking about hearing a cat and phone screeners were instructed to say that it was the first time they had heard that they did not know what the listener was hearing. Thousand of texters messaged in their stories of pulling over to check their engine compartments for stray cats and being late to work due to the fact that they spent time looking around in their car trying to find the cat. And dozens and dozens of FACEBOOK fans reported their own falling for the gag. Even producers for local ABC affiliate KOMO 4 were fooled and decided to share the whole thing on their 5 & 6 o’clock newscasts tonight.”
