KUPL Presents Its Own 'Royal Wedding'
April 28, 2011 at 7:12 AM (PT)
ALPHA BROADCASTING Country KUPL/PORTLAND is holding it’s own “ROYAL WEDDING,” TOMORROW (4/29), in honor of the big wedding in ENGLAND. KUPL morning star SIMON in the MORNING will host two listeners exchanging vows at 7:40a (PT) FRIDAY, at a local BURGER KING.
The engaged couple, PRESTON WHITNEY and VICKY SANTOYA of HILLSBORO, OR will don paper crowns and step up to the BK counter to exchange their vows in front of friends, family and a ‘live’ radio audience. Their “Royal Prize Package,” includes a weekend getaway to the OREGON COAST at the ELIZABETH STREET INN, plus tickets to an upcoming KUPL concert where Director of Music Programming SCOTT MAHALICK says, “they’ll be treated like royalty.”
“Why should WILLIAM and KATE get all the attention,” said MAHALICK. “I know he’s the future KING of ENGLAND and all, but we wanted to provide the royal treatment for a local couple. And by the way, our wedding will take place at the more reasonable hour of 7:40am, when people can tune in and hear the festivities on their drive to work.”
