WJZY & WMYT’s Matt Livoti (l to r), Angela Golden, Moyne Brewton & Scott Vandivier_show off the stations’ new awards from the Carowinds Media Day.
WJZY and WMYT received some top honors and awards at Carowinds 2010 Media Day Tuesday, January 19, 2010. The stations won two awards for the 2009 calendar year: “Charlotte Broadcast Promotion of the Year” for the annual Easter Eggstravaganza event and “Charlotte Broadcast Media Partner of the Year”.
Accepting the awards on behalf of the stations was Local Sales Manager Matt Livoti.
“There are very few places in our market where we can have the visibility that Carowinds provides and have the ability to meet face to face with our viewers. The term ‘partnership’ gets thrown around a lot but we truly do have a great relationship with Carowinds that is a benefit to our stations,” said Livoti. “This award is a testament to all the departments who help us execute these promotions from Scott and Moyne in sales to Creative Services, traffic and master control…thanks to everyone,” added Livoti.
In addition to the Easter Eggstravaganza, WJZY and WMYT also participate in a Halloween event at Carowinds called Howl-o-fest’s Boo Blast and in 2009 WMYT held a contestant search at the park with Family Feud producers. Both of those events were also a huge success.
“A special thanks also to Angela Golden who spends a lot of time making sure everything runs smoothly and the stations are represented in the best possible way at each event we participate in,” said Matt Livoti.
