If you were to choose a spokesperson for your station, who in the entertainment, music or sports industries would you select and why?
Orlando, WLLD: A spokesperson for WiLD would be DJ Khaled. We know he reps the music plus we can smell flowers, work out like animals, and spread Major Keys to Life, everywhere we go.

Java Joel, WAKS: Justin Timberlake, Lebron James, Ellen, Jimmy Fallon and Donald Trump. Okay, maybe not Trump.

Eric Chase, WVKS: My morning show. No one knows the station like they do!

Kobe, WWHT: Justin Timberlake, I know he is my answer for many of these questions, but he is this generation’s Frank Sinatra. He’s a triple threat, and is cool and hip, and he is a successful brand as well.

Randi West, WMTX: I wouldn't choose a 'celebrity' spokesperson. I'd rather choose a busy working mom who could relate to the audience.

Jared Banks, KUDD: Lionel Richie! Why wouldn’t you have Mr. Brick House? Me Hello, is it me you’re looking for? Mr. All Night Long! Mr. Dancing On The Ceiling! Lionel Richie is a music God among men!

John Mayer, WFLZ: Bartolo Colon! #LetsGoMets. Dude is the man, doesn’t get any simpler than that.

Rozy Myzal, HardDrive: Dave Grohl! I mean, come on!

Twisted Todd, WTPT: Dave Grohl. Because it’s f’n Dave Grohl!

Matt Talluto, WBYR: Donald Trump! We're all about getting attention. Who better to draw attention than the worlds biggest attention getter?
Toby Knapp, WIHT: Donald Trump. Love him or hate him, the way he brands – and repositions other brands or competitors – is amazing I tell you. Huge. He has made everything so damn great again. So great. Amazing I tell you.

Jonathan Reed, WAEV: Donald Trump. Like him or not... People listen.

Valentine, Y100: For us, I have no choice but the obvious...Pitbull, Flo Rida, Jason Derulo. Our hometown fam!

Mark Adams, KYLD/KIOI: Akira Kurosawa. For “Rashomon” encompasses life. That, and I’d fine it amusing forcing everyone to translate Japanese.

Gina Gray, WERO: Ellen, because she's cool as hell!

Jon Zellner, iHeartMedia: Can’t think of a better musician to be our spokesperson than Justin Timberlake, one of the biggest fans of radio out there.

Big Rob, KSME: Bob "Big Sexy" Burke - Now that's what I'm talkin' about! If Bob isn't available than Peyton Manning. That's what I'm talkin' about!

Sassy, WKXJ: Donald Trump. We’d always be in the news!

Dom Theodore, Radio Animal Media Strategies & The Blaze Radio Network: I would hire John Miller, the guy who worked for Trump in the early 90's that sounded just like him.

Mike Miller, WHKF: Justin Timberlake. He is the brand!
Brian Mack, WXXL: Justin Timberlake, because he’s Justin Timberlake with a timely great song!

Kobi, WNRW/WLGX: Justin Timberlake...nuff said!

Bob Patrick, WXLK: Justin Timberlake. Everyone loves Justin Timberlake.

Matt “MJ” Johnson, KUDD: Justin Timberlake. Women love him, men wanna be him!

Derrick Cole, WLAN: In 2016, I feel like THE ROCK would be a great spokesperson. No one dislikes him and no matter what he does, you gravitate towards him. It also sounds like I have a man crush, great!

Tommy Chuck, WIHT: Justin Timberlake.

Chase Murphy, KXXM: Prince! Oh wait. Too soon?

Chris Michaels, FM 100: Taylor Swift! Who doesn’t love Taylor Swift?

Fish Boy, WKRZ: Justin Timberlake because it’s Justin Timberlake!

Tony Waitekus/WHTQ: Justin Timberlake and Aaron Rogers. The best and the best.

Todd Lyons, KATS: Probably Mike Rowe or David Lee Roth. Rowe is able to cut through, sensibly, and speak to the common man whereas Diamond Dave makes everything sound awesome – even if you have no idea what the hell he is talking about!

Terri Ray, WKLT/WKLZ: Bob Seger – Northern Michigan loves him!
