Find the Mic Sweepstakes Winners 2004

        Radio on FacebookJoin us on Facebook

Since 2000, our annual sweepstakes has tasked our readers with finding the mic icon on each cover from the previous year. The icon, like the ones shown below, is placed on every cover of Radio magazine.

While the mic icon is part of the logo and is also used in the 10 Years logo, the challenge was to find the hidden icon placed on the cover. Sometimes it was easy to find. Sometimes it was a real challenge.

We received a large number of responses, of which more than half correctly identified all 13 cover locations (12 monthly issues plus the September Product Source).

The entries with all 13 correct answers were placed into a random drawing for the three prizes.

This year's winners and their prizes are:

Blake Thompson
WZIP-FM, Akron, OH
LPB Silent Mic Boom

Stephen Denemark
WQJC-FM, Quincy, IL
Sonifex RB-MA2 mic preamp

Charles VanHecke

Congratulations to the winners.
