POWER 95.3 Uses Digital Billboards To Give Special Orlando Hello And Goodbye To Dwight Howard

Stocks in this article: CCO

ORLANDO, Fla., March 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Orlando commuters will see the unique twist POWER 95.3 is giving to the countdown to tonight's game between the Orlando Magic and Los Angeles Lakers.  POWER 95.3 is running a creative advertising campaign on digital billboards using a countdown clock until former Magic center Dwight Howard once again leaves Orlando.


POWER 95.3 is running the countdown creative on 23 of Clear Channel Outdoor's digital billboards across Orlando.  The campaign began with the station realizing the game was coming up and wanted to send an irreverent hello to Dwight.  They came up with the concept and worked with Clear Channel Outdoor to get the ads up the next day throughout the Orlando metropolitan area.  The creative will run until Orlando can once again say goodbye to Dwight. 

"Dwight took us on a roller coaster ride for 2 years as to whether he was staying or going.  This time around Orlando knows for sure, exactly when Dwight will 'leave us again' – so let the countdown begin!" said Stevie DeMann, POWER 95.3's Program Director.  "We are having some fun using Clear Channel Outdoor's digital billboards to get Magic fans pumped for tonight's game."

"We are very privileged to have a great client that understands the power and immediacy of our OOH Digital programs in Orlando.  As an Orlando resident and Magic fan, I know Orlando is a world class city, with a world class NBA team in the Orlando Magic," said Craig Swygert, President of Clear Channel Outdoor – Orlando.  "Our city and our fans are proud of what we have to offer, and with POWER 95.3 displaying the digital countdown, it shows the passion and the 'Magic' of Orlando."
