WKSU TURNING "RADIOS ON!" IN NORTHEAST OHIO
Thursday January 26, 2006
Tens of thousands of people throughout Northeast Ohio tune their radio dials to WKSU every day. Whether listeners tune in for music, news or entertainment, the station is a vital source of public radio programming for the region. Last year, WKSU and Marcus Thomas LLC of Cleveland began sharing the value of public radio with the surrounding communities through Radios On!, a series of print advertisements featuring pictures of radios and their owners. To take this campaign a step further, WKSU is now asking listeners to share their favorite place to tune in by submitting snapshots of themselves and their radios or computers to www.wksu.org.
All pictures are displayed as part of a gallery on the Web site, and are rated by fellow listeners for a chance to be the spotlight picture or a part of the new promotional campaign. A blue-ribbon committee made up of employees of WKSU and Marcus Thomas LLC will select one grand-prize winner for an exclusive weekend trip for two to Washington, D.C., where he or she will receive a personally guided tour of National Public Radio's headquarters.
The contest will run through May 31, 2006, and the winner will be announced June 15. Photo submissions should include the name of the person(s) photographed, the location and a brief description. Photos can be submitted by uploading a digital file on the WKSU Web site or by mailing to Radios On!, c/o Bob Burford, WKSU, P.O. Box 5190, Kent, OH 44242-0001.
WKSU broadcasts NPR & Classical Music at 89.7 FM, and is a service of Kent State University. WKSU programming is also heard on WKRW 89.3 FM in Wooster, WKRJ 91.5 FM in Dover/New Philadelphia, WKSV 89.1 FM in Thompson and WNRK 90.7 FM in Norwalk. The WKSU web site is www.wksu.org.
