GARRY MEIER TO BROADCAST LIVE FROM THE UNITED CENTER BEFORE GAME SIX OF THE BLACKHAWKS/CANUCKS SERIES
Meier going for 11 wins in a row when broadcasting live from the UC
April 22, 2011 – WGN Radio afternoon host Garry Meier has been the Chicago Blackhawks’ lucky charm this season. In the ten match-ups when Meier has broadcast live from the United Center before the game, the Blackhawks hold a 10-0 record. This Sunday, Meier and the team look to extend the streak to 11 games as Garry hosts a special Easter Sunday edition of his show from 5-6:20 p.m. He will remain at the “ketchup & mustard pumpers” broadcast location at the Gate 6 concourse across from the Budweiser Select Brew Pub and Carvery before the Blackhawks take on the Canucks in game six of the Stanley Cup western conference quarterfinals series.
In honor of the streak, WGN Radio and the Chicago Blackhawks are giving away an “11 would be Heaven” prize package. Listeners can text 11 to BHAWKS (242957) to enter to win 11 autographed hockey pucks from 11 Stanley Cup champions, including Patrick Kane, Jonathan Toews, Duncan Keith, Marian Hossa, Brian Campbell, Niklas Hjalmarsson, Troy Brouwer, Dave Bolland, Brent Seabrook, Patrick Sharp, and Tomas Kopecky, along with four tickets to Sunday’s game, a meet and greet with Meier and Blackhawks ambassadors, and a personalized Blackhawks jersey with the winner’s name and number 11 on the back. Complete contest details available at wgnradio.com/contests.
“I’m hoping the mojo will continue and propel the Hawks to game seven,” said Meier. “Let’s make Peeps and pucks the winning Easter Sunday combo at the UC!”
Game six will be broadcast live on WGN-AM 720 starting at 6:30 p.m. Listening is also available online at wgnradio.com/listen and on mobile devices, including the iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, BlackBerry and Droid. Details at wgnradio.com/mobile.
