Special Kids' Radio Broadcast for SpongeBob Race
Veteran broadcasters Mike Joy of Fox Sports and Stephanie Durner of PRN¿s ¿Sunday Drive¿ will team with teenage race car drivers to deliver the NASCAR Busch Series race with unique features tailored for younger race fans.
Sixteen-year-old Legends Car racer Chrissy Wallace, daughter of NASCAR driver Mike Wallace, and 15-year-old Bandolero racer Jessie Johnson, brother of NASCAR driver Jimmie Johnson, will join Joy and Durner in the broadcast booth.
Teenagers will also handle reporting duties with Kyle Whisenant delivering stories from the infield and Megan McMillan roaming as a feature correspondent.
¿This will be the first time a radio network produces a race broadcast geared specifically toward kids and utilizes teenage talent,¿ stated Doug Rice, vice president and general manager of the Performance Racing Network.
¿Nickelodeon¿s sponsorship of this race with Lowe¿s has increased NASCAR¿s awareness with a younger audience. This broadcast will offer a complete new perspective as we hear the race described by young people who understand racing and who have competed at Lowe¿s Motor Speedway. Who knows? Maybe SpongeBob SquarePants himself will join us behind the microphone!¿
The Lowe¿s presents The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie 300 kids¿ broadcast will begin at 7:45 p.m. with live flag-to-flag coverage exclusively in the Greensboro/Winston-Salem/High Point and Charlotte radio markets on HITZ 94.1 FM.
