NO RUSSIAN INFLUENCE DETERMINED IN R&J’S READERS’ CHOICE AWARD VOTING

By | Wings News

 

 

A thorough investigation has determined that Russians played absolutely no role in Rich & Jeremy in the Morning being voted Best Radio Personalities by readers of the Opelika-Auburn News! The Kremlin did, however, release a statement confirming that Vladimir Putin listens to Rich & Jeremy in the Morning daily on his Wings 94.3 app.

The Wings 94.3 morning show duo was announced this past Sunday as the top vote recipients in the 18th annual Opelika-Auburn News Readers’ Choice Awards. The multi-category area business and services awards are determined by voting of newspaper readers via online and printed ballots.

“This is a terrific honor and something we are grateful and humbled to receive,” said Rich Perkins, the Rich half of the team. “We thank our listeners and the readers of the Opelika-Auburn News. We pledge to continue to be totally committed to this community and take our job very seriously. Finally, for all of the folks out there we promised to give a T-Shirt if you voted for us, that was just a joke!”

Rich & Jeremy in the Morning airs weekday from 6 a.m. – 9 a.m. on Classic Hits Wings 94.3.

AUBURN HIGH HOSTS ENTERPRISE TONIGHT

By | Wings News

 

55ef520e1b85f.image

Auburn High is getting set to take on their third straight region opponent when battling Enterprise Friday night at Duck-Samford Stadium in Auburn. The Tigers rose to number seven in Wednesday’s Alabama Sports Writers Association High School Football poll after an impressive win in Prattville last Friday night and hopes to carry that momentum into Duck-Samford against the Wildcats. Even though the playing status of senior Auburn running back Garrett Morris is uncertain, sophmore Jay Walker has done an impressive job in his place, including a 146 yard night against Prattville and a 169 yard night against Central.

 

Enterprise is having a rough start to their 2017 season, despite going 11-2 overall (6-1 in region play) last season, which earned them a spot in the AHSAA 7A playoff spot. The Wildcats beat Baker in round one of the playoffs, but then was defeated by McGill-Toolen in the second round. Enterprise defeated Dothan in week one of this year, but then fell to Northview, Prattville, and Jefferson Davis.

 

Last year, the Tigers traveled to Enterprise and was defeated by the Wildcats by a final score of 28-14. Enterprise quarterback Koty Fulton-Tice had 145 passing yards and Enterprise wide reciever Cincere Flowers recorded two touchdowns in the game. The Wildcats ended the game with 234 yards of total offence. Auburn hopes for more success this season with their strong running game and their stout defense led by Mohamoud Diabate, Cally Chizik, and Griffin Speaks, who had two interceptions last Friday night.

 

AHS on WingsAirtime will be 6:30 CT on Wings 94.3 with the broadcast team of Scott Bagwell, Blake Ramsey and Noah Gardner providing coverage. The game will also be streamed online at wingsfm.com and on the Wings 94.3 app.

 

AUBURN HIGH DEFEATS PRATTVILLE

By | Wings News

The Auburn High Tigers defeated 7A Region opponent Prattville 21-6 on the road Friday night. The Tigers improve to 3-1 on the season, 1-1 in Region play.

Auburn returns home this Friday hosting Enterprise at Duck Samford Stadium. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m. with pregame on Wings 94.3 beginning at 6:30.
