Cat has scored an incredible opportunity for your listeners to take their guy/gal to see Harry Styles live! After having the number one album for the last 2 weeks, no one is hotter! Your listeners will have a chance to listen to your radio station, open your app, and enter to see him in Boston!

Prize includes:

  • Roundtrip airfare for two (2)
  • Two (2) Nights Hotel Stay
  • Two (2) tickets to see Harry Styles in Boston!
  • $500 in Cash

These are great assets to use for accomplishing your station’s goals. I encourage you to create listening occasions for your listeners to tune in to get codewords or APP exclusive alerts with codes to generate APP downloads. To add multipliers for those words to your contest work with your DME or check out this tutorial. These types of experiences should not be background promotions.

On-Air Promotional Assets:

  • You can find recorded promos, work parts, and scripts here once they are uploaded.
  • All promotion must include disclosure of the organization providing the prize. In this case, "Courtesy of Columbia Records."
  • Since this is a national contest, everything should be worded ON (insert station name) and not FROM (station name).
  • Please create a local campaign using live mentions and recorded promos to support. We recommend a minimum of 6x per day each.
  • If you're playing Harry Styles, we recommend creating customized imaging into his songs to run over intros. "Win the chance to see Harry Styles in Boston! Listen at (insert time) on (station name)."
