SRN's ''Hugh Hewitt Show'' Announces Mid-Term Madness
|RADIO ONLINE | Wednesday, September 5, 2018|
Salem Media Group is launching "Mid-Term Madness," a fantasy game allowing listeners to the "Hugh Hewitt Show" to select who they think will win those key races. Much like basketball brackets where fans can choose the teams they want to win, or fantasy football where fans choose players, listeners will be able to select from a variety of races across the country and show their political expertise.
"I've been a fan of fantasy football leagues for years, but this is the first time anybody has figured out how to apply those basic rules to a national election," said Hewitt, heard 6-9am ET on the Salem Radio Network. "My listeners are incredibly smart, especially about all these races. The winner will get to co-host a radio show with me. What could be better?"
Beginning September 10th, Hewitt's listeners will be able to go to his website, www.HughHewitt.com, and register to play. Hugh has worked with Loyal Ears Digital, a company with experience in fantasy sports leagues. They will monitor the game, and watch for fair play and accuracy. The winning contestant will win a trip to Washington, DC, to be on the Hugh Hewitt radio program across the country.
"This Mid-Term election is perhaps the most important non Presidential election in history, shaping the direction of the country for years to come," said Salem Sr. VP of Spoken Word, Phil Boyce. "Adding this element of listener engagement has never been tried before, but the Hugh Hewitt show is the perfect platform to make this work."
