A six-month long competition finally came to a head last week at The Bay when a listener guessed the station’s Famous Last Words.
The mystery clip had been on-air for 182 days, says Programme Controller Phil Rodgers, who decided that it was time to try and help listeners by simplifying the game for one day only. Some broad clues were given and more listeners were taken to air, increasing the cash pot along the way.
The prize reached £2,380 and went on 30th August just before 6pm to Brian Maloney of Overton after listeners had been calling the station all day.
Presenter Nick Margerrison was on air to confirm to Brian that he was a big winner and said: “This competition has baffled The Bay listeners for the past six months and wherever we went, we were asked to ‘tell us the answer!’. It was great to finally get a winner and be able to give the money to someone like Brian.”
