PRESS RELEASE – The Vermont Lake Monsters and FairPoint Communications are teaming up with seven of the area’s biggest radio stations to have the DJs and radio personalities compete in a fan voted contest, where the winner will be immortalized as a bobblehead and handed out to fans this summer at a Lake Monsters baseball game.

“Radio listeners are very loyal to their programming, so this is a great way to connect the audience to their favorite radio show and personality,” said General Manager, Nate Cloutier. “The fact that we can team up with FairPoint and the radio stations to donate $1,000 to a local charity, makes this a great way for us all to connect to the community as well. We are excited to see who the winners are and what bobblehead will be on people’s desks this summer.”

“We will have three rounds of voting, the first will consist of all seven radio personalities, and the four highest vote getters will move on,” explains Assistant General Manager, Joe Doud. “Two will emerge from another round of voting in the second round, where they will then be matched head-to-head. A third and final round of voting will determine the winner.”
First-round voting will take place March 15-21, while the second round March 22-28. The top two vote getters will faceoff in the final round March 29-April 4 with the winner announced April 5th.
