Radio Essex World Tour
During 2016 Radio Essex are giving listeners the chance to see the planet’s biggest artists in the world’s coolest venues as we bring Essex the World Tour.
The first leg of the tour began in February where listeners had the chance to see the legend Lionel Richie at the Planet Hollywood resort in Las Vegas. As well as tickets to the gig, the prize also included flights, transfers and a stay at the world renowned MGM Grand Hotel for one lucky winner and their guest.
After a two week registration period, listeners eagerly sat by their phones and awaited a call from one of the Radio Essex presenters. To gain their place in the Grand Finale they had to answer the phone singing some of Lionel’s most well-known lyrics… “Hello, is it me you’re looking for?” The promotion was proudly sponsored by Kube Kitchens and the Grand Finale was held live from their showroom in Leigh on Sea on Saturday 12th March. 10 finalists battled it out to walk away with this once in a lifetime prize.
The lucky winner was Cheryl Harrell from Hockley who alongside her guest, will be heading to Las Vegas to see Lionel Richie on behalf of Radio Essex and Kube Kitchens. The next leg of the tour is just around the corner, but where will Radio Essex be sending their listeners to next?
Proud Sponsors of Radio Essex
We are thrilled to have some amazing sponsors on board for 2016. Love it or hate it, Marmite are currently sponsoring Mondays on the station joining Intu Lakeside who are sponsoring Wake Up Essex and C2C who are currently sponsoring Home Time. Well renowned local businesses Apple Flooring, Essex Auto Group, Frost Financial and Castle Point Motors have also jumped on board and are sponsoring weather, travel, sport and time checks. 2016 also marks the first year of our increased reach from Central and South Essex to Essex County Wide. We’re continuously building on the historic stronghold of Southend and Chelmsford with the addition of our DAB transmitter. We feel that our increased level of advertising revenue is down to Radio Essex being the only truly local Essex station. We’re made in Essex by people from Essex for the people of Essex.
