Chinese New Year

Posted on Feb 19, 2015

**** BREAKING NEWS *****

Russ Lacate missed the mark yesterday with his forecast, so the $3300 jackpot for the News 1130 Weather Guarantee is up for grabs today at 4:55! You have 10 minutes to call back, so make sure you are listening. Or send me your name and phone number if you can’t listen and I’ll call you if it’s you. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, go to News 1130’s site and sign up. Collect points and spend them on virtual raffle tickets – there are concerts, trips, lots of cool stuff, and also the Weather Guarantee.

Today is Chinese New Year! So Happy New Year! My daughter just asked me why it’s their New Year, so I’ll be doing some googling later…

Therefore, Kevin and Sonja from The Peak are giving away free money! Listen for a clue to their location at 8:30, then find out at 11:30 where they exactly they are. Stop in and say hello, and pick up your pretty red envelope with cash in it! It could be $5 or it could be $100. Nice! That might cover your parking if they’re downtown… haha.

Aside from that, nothing new to report. I had a lot of fun trying to track down people for Jack’s Win at Work on Wednesday – now that we’ve had a break from it for a while, I’m really enjoying it again!

The #ZDoomedGroom and MIL have another day till they reach their goal. They were still hanging in there when I saw them the other day – I hope they make it. I want to know ALL the details when it’s over! I hope they have a Q&A session on-air or on Twitter on Friday…

From yesterday:

Sneaky Jack started their Win at Work game again yesterday. Are you signed up for it? May as well, who couldn’t use an extra hundred bucks?! Go sign up HERE (scroll to the bottom and Opt-in), then send me your info if you can’t listen at all 4 times of the day when they say “hi” to someone on air. Listen at 8:10, 10:10, 11:10, and 2:10. Ish. Sometimes they do it a bit earlier or later but somewhere around ten after.

JRFM: they’ve got Chad Brownlee and friends tickets for the secret word prize as well as Uturn prize. Four packs of Blackcomb/Whistler lift passes throughout the day too, listen for the cue to call.

Beat: Beat is sending someone to the Juno Awards in Toronto to meet Magic. Enter online before the 26th. This prize is worth over $6000! Wow!! Oh, and don’t forget to get your name into that Barbados draw.

QMFM: Big Movie Ballot – choose the winners for Sunday night and win a sweet prize. Enter online. They are still giving away Petlovers prizes, submit your pet’s photo online.

It’s CFOX’s turn to give away trips to Mexico! Qualify at 8, 11, 2, and 5 each day. Winner will be drawn Monday morning, for the next 4 Mondays. 1 in 20 odds is still pretty good! The Jeff O’Neil Show also has Monster Jam tickets with pit passes up for grabs.

Jack: Petlover prize and/or Imagine Dragons tickets with Kiah and Tara Jean. Kenny and Rick Lee have WWE Live tickets.
