Salem Radio Network will be launching Mid-Term Madness, a fantasy game allowing listeners to the Hugh Hewitt show to select who they think will win those key races in the November 6th election. Much like basketball brackets where fans can choose the teams they want to win, or fantasy football where fans choose players, listeners will be able to select from a variety of races across the country and show their political expertise.
“I’ve been a fan of fantasy football leagues for years, but this is the first time anybody has figured out how to apply those basic rules to a national election,” said Hugh Hewitt, heard 6-9am ET on the Salem Radio Network. “My listeners are incredibly smart, especially about all these races. The winner will get to co-host a radio show with me. What could be better?” said Hugh.
