Much to the disappointment of our interns, summer is officially over and school is back in session. Fortunately, the beginning of the school year means that many of the best radio stations across the country will also be returning to the air. Zipwhip has teamed up with four prominent college radio stations in the last couple weeks: University of Connecticut, Brown University, Michigan State, and Truman State University. Many more stations are currently trialing our service and should be on-board soon, ready to accept your texts on their existing request and office lines.
Zipwhip wants to hear from you, the listener, about your favorite station How? In conjuction with College Radio Day (October 1st) we are throwing the first ever Zipwhip College Radio Giveaway, where one station and one listener will win cool prizes. The college radio station with the most nominations will win one year of free service. One randomly selected entrant will receive a Zipwhip swag package that includes a $20 Starbucks gift card (Always helpful when finals roll around), a T-shirt, and stickers.
Click here to enter (http://ptab.it/1mUhe) or go directly to the Zipwhip Facebook page where the contest is hosted. Like the page if you haven’t already, then enter the station’s call letters and their respective college (i.e. “KEXP at the University of Washington”) below the entry form. That’s it. We will announce the winner of the contest on Monday, October 1st at 5pm PST. We will alert everyone once a winner has been chosen. Now that’s not a bad way to start “Rock-tober” (I’m sorry, but I had to make that joke).
Get voting and good luck.
