Bits & Pieces: KBAY, WXCY, KZPK

Alpha KBAY/San Jose & KKDV/Walnut Creek, CA celebrated Big Loud’s Morgan Wallen bringing his Dangerous Tour to Shoreline Amphitheatre At Mountain View by hosting a Wallen look-alike contest. The station conducted an online casting call, and listeners were invited to vote for their choice. Mulleted winner Cole Hodges earned a pair of tickets to the sold-out show, some "cash for his efforts," and the opportunity to serve as a “stand in” for Wallen at KBAY’s station booth before the show. “I couldn’t believe the engagement we got from listeners,” says PD Bo Matthews. “Everyone wanted a pic with the faux-Morgan!” APD/afternoon personality Isaac “Brooks” Wenzel adds, “Cole went all out and looked the part. I was blown away by his performance and the response from our amazing listeners throughout the promotion.” Listeners stopped by to take photos with the substitute Wallen before enjoying the concert last weekend. More photos on the station’s Facebook page here.

Forever WXCY/Wilmington, DE morning personality Paula Ryan celebrated 20 years at the helm of The WXCY Morning Show Sept. 18. “We thank you and love you dearly, Paula!” the station shares via Facebook. Ryan was fêted Monday morning on-air by listeners, local businesses and artists. Congratulate her here.

Leighton KZPK/St. Cloud, MN morning hosts Kelly Jordan and Matt Wood held their inaugural Tattoo For A Cause this weekend, which raised nearly $5,000 for local charities focusing on cancer awareness, veteran suicide and mental health. Listeners lined up four hours before the event, with some waiting as long as 13 hours to get a flash tattoo focusing on the causes.
