PIERRE, S.D. – (DRG News) A Pierre woman claimed her prize Monday as part of a contest organized by the Dakota Radio Group’s 94 Country-KPLO. Late last year, the station kicked off a “Power Trip” contest-to celebrate the completion of a project to rebuild the 94 Country broadcast tower that was felled by ice in January of 2010. When the tower went down, it impacted the station’s signal for a few years, until the tower site could be relocated and a tower could be built in a new location. As part of the “Power Trip”, the station gave away tickets to see Keith Urban in concert in Minneapolis on January 11. The winner of that prize was Ron Baumgart and his wife Shellie. Last Friday, the station drew a name from contest submissions for two tickets to see George Strait in concert next month in Denver. The winner of that prize was….Judene Holan. Holan came to the station this week to finalize prize details and says she was in Rapid City last Friday for a Rush Hockey game when she missed a call the station had placed to notify her that she had won. When she called back and was told the reason that 94 Country was calling her, she says she was overjoyed.
Holan says she has seen George Strait in concert a few times before and has been to Denver for an Alabama concert. She’s a big country music fan and says she registered almost daily throughout the duration of the contest.
Holan says she likes George Strait-for many reasons.
Holan jokes that since winning the tickets, she’s been really popular with her friends…who wonder who she’s chosen to go with her to the concert. Holan says she selected a friend’s Mother-a fellow lover of George Strait’s music-to join her.
Thanks to all who took part in 94 Country’s Power Trip contest…and thanks again for sticking with us during the work to get the station back up to full power!
