Car crash de­lays ra­dio sta­tion ma­jor prize mile­stone

Tweed Daily News - - NEWS -

IT WAS sup­posed to be a proud mo­ment for Ra­dio 97 and break­fast pre­sen­ter Scott May­man, with a big an­nounce­ment last week about the pro­gram’s Se­cret Sound seg­ment.

But a car crash on Tues­day af­ter­noon forced the vet­eran broad­caster “off the air” – on the day he was meant to be pre­sid­ing over a record achieve­ment for the sta­tion – $1570 which is the big­gest cash-win on record in the sta­tion’s his­tory.

For­tu­nately it was not a se­ri­ous ac­ci­dent.

“Scotty” was back on the air a day later than ex­pected, pre­sent­ing the ra­dio sta­tion’s mile­stone.

“The re­sponse has been in­cred­i­ble” he said.

“One lis­tener said they’d pay for my car’s re­pair bill if they win, but sadly I can’t ac­cept the kind of­fer, though I must ad­mit it’s very tempt­ing”.

In the mean­time, The Se­cret Sound con­tin­ues to jack­pot.

“It’s got so many peo­ple frus­trated and I know they’ll be kick­ing them­selves and per­haps me, when some­one calls in with the cor­rect an­swer, but I can’t give any­thing away,” Scotty said.

“Mon­day’s give­away amount reached $1600 and it’s still ris­ing, with a new record be­ing broken ev­ery day on Ra­dio 97 un­til some­one can cor­rectly an­swer the se­cret sound”.
