Online radio show to promote Rockford attractions
The Rockford Area Convention & Visitors Bureau (RACVB) recently partnered with Rockford College to create an online radio program promoting all the great things to do in the Rockford region.
The program is hosted by RACVB Vice President Monica Krysztopa and Marketing Manager Bridget French.
The show, titled It’s a Great Day in Rockford with Monica and Bridget, airs every Thursday from noon to 1 p.m. Each week, the show features a Rockford original restaurant, a local site or attraction, specials offered by the featured guests and conversation about things to do in the Rockford Region.
“The Rockford region has so many unique things to do, and this provides a wonderful forum to let both local residents and visitors know what’s available,” Krysztopa said. “The Rockford region boasts 250 restaurants and just about 100 museums, sites and attractions for everyone to enjoy. This gives us plenty of opportunity to highlight and showcase on our podcast the best Rockford has to offer.”
As part of the radio program, Monica and Bridget are holding a contest for local students to create a jingle to be broadcast at the beginning of each show. Participants must be between the ages of 10-21 and fill out the registration form, which can be found on www.gorockford.com. The contest runs through April 27.
From the April 4-10, 2012, issue
