WDFN to give away Tigers Opening Day tickets for dunking on-air personality

With the Tigers coming off a magical year and the 2007 season set to kick off this coming Monday, sports WDFN AM 1130 is asking listeners if they have what it takes to win Opening Day tickets.

On Friday, March 30th during The Jamie & Brady Show, heard weekdays from 6am to 9am, listeners will have the chance to showcase their throwing arm and illustrate their desire to go to Tigers Opening Day at Comerica Park on Monday, April 2nd by coming down to the station at 8am to try and dunk WDFN personality and update reporter Rob Pascoe in an actual dunk tank. Participants will have one shot to hit a small target from 90 feet away with a tennis ball to submerge Pascoe, who will be fully adorned in a dress, in the frigid water.

WDFN will be awarding the coveted Opening Day tickets to the first person to successfully hit the target and release the WDFN air talent into the watery abyss below.

WDFN is eager to see how much Tiger fever Detroit fans have and how able and willing some people are to skip work and do whatever they can just for the chance to win the tickets.

When it comes to local TV news, reader Barbara Hickey of Warren watches WXYZ-TV (Channel 7). She watches the ABC affiliate so much that she noticed during a recent newscast that one of the anchors alluded to a spouse named "Shay" when talking to general assignment reporter Glenn Zimmerman... Reader guesses right about Glenn and Shay (Wed, 3/28)

Revealed: The sale price for WDRJ AM 1440 Inkster is $3.8 million. The station religious/ethnic outlet is being purchased by Communicom from Davidson Media, which purchased the station in 2004 for $5.75 million.
