There’s a special holiday event planned for our radio listeners Friday.

Beginning at 9am , many different choirs and musicians will be performing live over the airwaves of AM 1240. The open mic event is a first for WHIZ in quite a long time.

"We’ve not had any kind of endeavor like this probably since the 1940’s, " says WHIZ’s Jay Benson.

WHIZ is hoping the live event will be the start of a new tradition around the holidays here in Zanesville.

"We think there’s quite a bit of interest in it. We certainly have had a lot of people really excited about it so the level of excitement would indicate that we’re going to make this an annual event," says Benson.

Live music will run from 9am until approximately 11:30 am. It will also be streamed on our web site live at
