MIX (and Sports Radio) Mannequins: CBC Radio Joins a Social Media Craze

The staffs at MIX 101.5 and 99.9 FM The Fan recently completed this video as part of the Mannequin Challenge, which has become popular on social media.

WRAL-FM Promotions Coordinator Justina Kruser is the videographer behind the almost 5-minute piece.  She was bummed not to actually be in the video, but said it was a blast to be a part of making it happen.  MIX Morning Show, Two Men and a Mom, Co-Host Kyle Smelser came up with the idea to do a station video, and Kruser helped him make it happen.  Their co-workers were a quick study in creating the fast fun.

“It took us two takes — the first one was 7 minutes long and there were too many people moving that we knew we could do better,” said Kruser.  “So we decided to redo it and nailed it the 2nd time.”

NOTE:  See if you can find the two staffers who moved during the frozen shoot.  We won’t calls names, but one was the CBC Sports Radio General Manager.  Good times!

Thanks to WRAL-FM’s Justina Kruser & WRALSportsFan.com for this capcom video.
