Finish Chelsea's Run

Little Tommy of KyXy 96.5 hosted Finish Chelsea's Run on Saturday, March 1, from 7a-noon at Balboa Park.  Despite downpours through the early morning, the sun was shining bright when the runners and walkers hit the pavement on 6th Avenue.  Participants taking the course at a slower pace were sprinkled with some rain, but it didn't stop them from Finishing Chelsea's Run.  This year's event included the involvement of San Diego Girl Scouts and many troops like the girls from 3602 and 3061, seen in the photos, joined the fundraiser making it the biggest crowd to date. 

The KyXy Promotion team along with other vendors provided prizes, snacks and other "swag" for the attendees.

This annual run/walk is now the primary fundraiser for the Chelsea's Light Foundation Sunflower Scholarship Fund, providing scholarships for San Diego County college-bound teens who have embraced characteristics that embodied Chelsea's academic prowess and service-over-self ethic.  The 2013 run/walk enabled the Foundation to provide over $70,000 in Sunflower Scholarships to 10 amazing students and continue efforts to expand Chelsea's Law.

The Mighty 1090 hosted the 4th Annual Clean Your Drawers Holiday Clothing Drive Friday morning, December 20th, 2013 from 6:00am to 6:00pm. Sports fans from all over San Diego were invited to bring their new or gently used clothing donations to the Tilted Kilt Pub & Eatery Mission Valley benefiting San Diego Alpha Project.

All clothing donations will go to Alpha Project, which attempts to develop relationships with the homeless; offering them food, water, clothing, hygiene supplies, transportation assistance as well as a compassionate ear. Alpha Project CEO Bob McElroy joined Hacksaw & Company LIVE on air at 8:45am to talk about the needs of San Diego's homeless during the cold months of the year.


Bud Light graciously donated a delivery truck to house the donations for the clothing drive and deliver them to Alpha Project, downtown. Vice President of Marketing for Bud Light San Diego James Dierker will deliver the truck and the clothes on behalf of Anheuser-Busch.

"Clean Your Drawers started four years ago as a sock drive with Scott & BR. The response from generous San Diegans was overwhelming. To see it develop into an annual community event to help San Diego's homeless during the holidays is a feat that we are proud of at The Mighty 1090," says Broadcast Company of the Americas General Manager Norman Feuer.

Today we call it Data but we used to call it Statistics. Statistics are boring. That's why a clever boy in Silicon Valley gave them a new and better name. A scientist is willing to change a belief when presented with data, facts and logic.
Leveraging Nielsen’s local television and audio panels, Nielsen and CBS collaborated to demonstrate the additive power of combining media buys for major ad campaigns.
Increases occurred across all sectors including spot, digital, network and off-air revenue.
Brands averaged a sales lift of more than $6 for every $1 spent on radio ads - an ROI double that of even the best results from many recent studies of digital or TV media.
Study finds that only 40 percent of web ads are viewable, meaning that at least half of the ad was in view for more than a second. The rest were out of the view of the user visiting that page.
Like so many Sir Galahads on the quest for the Holy Grail, businesspeople continue to search with near-religious ardor for "the perfect ad campaign." And many, when they have found it, learn that it's not enough. One of the greatest myths in marketing is the belief that advertising, by itself, is able to drive steady traffic into a business. This perception is supremely evident when a businessperson looks at an ad professional and says, "My only problem is traffic. If I had more traffic I'd sell more customers.
