The Edmonson Voice and D93's The Tony Rose Morning Show on WDNS have partnered with the Edmonson County Chamber of Commerce to bring "EC Chamber Talk," a new monthly segment to the popular radio show that highlights local chamber members.
With the recent overhaul of the chamber's website, the organization is working hard to promote it's members in better and more efficient ways while taking advantage with a partnership from two major media outlets.
"The chamber had tried utilizing another radio station in the past with a partner-type scenario, but it didn't really pan out to help the chamber," said Edmonson Voice Editor Darren Doyle. "With our strong relationship with the community-minded folks at D93 and my longtime friend Tony Rose, we hope to bring something new and fun to help Edmonson County."
Chamber Director Rhonda Clemmons said the chamber was excited about the new opportunity. “We feel this new member benefit will offer an unprecedented member service, as well as promote our chamber website and upcoming chamber and community events."
Although The Tony Rose Morning Show is broadcast live from D93 studios in downtown Bowling Green each morning from 6am-10am, Rose has been locally invested in Edmonson County projects and schools for several years.
"I have so many friends in EC," he said. "I've always felt like I was part of the county. You guys are a huge asset to Stuff The Bus and Cram the Cruiser, and we absolutely love coming and visiting your schools. A huge part of Brownsville and Edmonson County listen and support us, so when the Chamber asked us to do this, and told us DD and The Edmonson Voice were on board, we jumped at the chance to try to give back in another way."
Clemmons joked at first about not knowing what to expect with Rose's show, but was confident that the outcome would be good. “To share positive news and positive growth from voices that care about our hometown like that of our local media Edmonson Voice and our adopted “hometown boy” Tony Rose, our community will have two outstanding advocates," added Clemmons.
"Some of our members have branch offices in surrounding communities such as Bank of Edmonson, with two locations in Warren County. Brooks Motors has offices in Edmonson County and Barren County. Many of our members reach out for business on the web like Mimi's Gift Gallery and Jacob’s Home Furnishings, as well as many others who have been steadfast members for years who offer store fronts and hometown jobs," Clemmons said. "We are equally proud of all, and want to share that hometown pride thru these Chamber radio segments."
"EC Chamber Talk" will air live on D93 on the first Tuesday of each month at 7:45am. The first segment is scheduled for this upcoming Tuesday, May 3, 2016 at 7:45am.
