WNZR/Mt Vernon, a broadcast ministry of Mount Vernon Nazarene University, recently completed a week of live broadcasts at the annual Knox County Fair. WNZR and MVNU’s Office of Admissions partnered with underwriting partners Kokosing Construction and A+ Autobrokers to purchase four hogs at the Junior Fair Livestock Sale. WNZR Station Manager Marcy Rinehart and Morning Thing co-host Jenna Potts (pictured) sat in the auction ring with other local buyers to place bids and purchased 4 hogs from local youth.
WNZR listeners had the opportunity throughout the week of the fair to sign up to win the meat from the hogs purchased by the bidding team. Four lucky winners received 150 lbs. of cuts including sausage, ham, bacon, chops and ribs.
