Jamaican gospel radio station, NCU FM will rev into gear its 3rd annual education and wellness cross-country campaign starting Monday, July 18.
First Light Morning Man, Arnold Kelly will be broadcasting his early morning show live from the Coore’s gas-station in Spanish Town as the station embarks on the first leg of it’s week-long 2016 14 in 14 Education and Wellness Challenge.
Each morning show gets underway at 6:00 a.m. while the afternoon shows start at the usual Drive Time 2:00 p.m. with the show’s host, Basillia Barnaby-Cuff at the mic.
The event will see the radio station making two daily stops in major towns of Jamaica’s 14 parishes for live broadcast of their flagship shows, First Light and The Drive. According to the station, Cruisin’ will broadcast in-transit and make surprise stops at sponsors’ business places to meet and greet and take staff through aerobic workout steps.
The energetic 14 in 14 gang, which usually includes an group of NCU FM staffers will again be leading fans in each location in live aerobic exercise routines and physical game-based contests like Hulahoop and Skipping marathons and the wildly popular, NCU FM vs the Community Tug-o-War Challenge at each location.
Members of the public are invited to join in the on-location wellness games and other audience-interactive activities at each parish stop.
For more location details and fan give-away opportunities, tune in to the station which is aired on 91.1, 91.3, and 91.5 Fm or check out their Facebook page for updates during the week-long road trip.
