It was a radio promotion that WAY-FM, Centricity Music, and Lauren Daigle won’t soon forget. What started as a flyaway with Lauren Daigle turned into a marriage proposal. According to Justin Paul, WAY-FM Evening Personality and Network Promotions Director, “After awarding the trip to Tallahassee, FL listener Scott Slappey, he shared that not only was Lauren Daigle one of his girlfriend Ann Morton’s favorite artists, but that she’s always wanted to ride in a hot air balloon. He’d even thought of potentially proposing at an upcoming hot air balloon festival. The stars had aligned. After he secured a ring, it was a done deal.”
Network Program Director Todd Stach added, “The proposal may not have even happened if it weren’t for Joy from WAY-FM’s CJ & Joy Show. She courageously suggested that Scott think about proposing. From that moment on it was cool to see everyone pull together to help make a memory of a lifetime.”
