The MJ Morning Show launched its “Show Us Your MJ” contest on Q105 this month. The crew is giving away a 2021 Kia Soul for first place, $10,000 for second, and $5,000 for third. This might actually be the biggest contest the show has ever done in its history open to all listeners in terms of the value of the prizes — roughly $35,000. This is aside from the plastic surgery contests they did back in the day like Breast Christmas Ever, Pick Your Plastic, and Mangle Mouth. Those contests were geared toward certain groups of listeners only.
However, it’s not the first time the MJ Morning Show has given away a car as a prize. In 2001, the show’s second rendition of its “Survivor Island” contest required listeners to live in the radio station parking lot among an elaborately constructed “island” of sorts with tons of sand and all the elements of a traditional island. During the contest, listeners had to constantly be touching the vehicle 24 hours a day. They could use their hand, foot, head, or essentially any body part which had to be making contact with the car at all times. After nearly a week, one listener was the last one standing and won the car. There was also $10,000 cash in the glove compartment.
Be sure to visit MJMorningShow.com to enter the current “Show Us Your MJ” contest! To enter, all you have to do is create some type of sign or banner and display it for a reasonable period of time. The sign must say “The MJ Morning Show is back on q105.” MJ admitted that due to the pandemic, the main reason for holding this contest is because the radio station can’t quite afford a billboard campaign to promote the return of the MJ Morning Show around the Tampa Bay area, which would be a traditional advertising campaign for a major radio show’s debut ore return to the airwaves. By engaging listeners in this plan, it’s a great way to get the word out to a mass audience and then reward the listeners who create the three best signs with some tremendous prizes.
