First, if you're going to do a remote at a theme park, mike yourself and ride the rides. Most theme park broadcasts are as exciting as a remote from Popeyes. One of the stations has been tasked to do "something" on opening day. They're looking at doing a cellphone scavenger hunt. As everyone comes in they're given a list of things to take a photo of when they're strolling the park.
- Little boy with ice cream on his shirt
- Baby in stroller
- Strolling musician
- Someone screaming on a ride
- Someone wearing a Dale Earnhardt t-shirt
- A guy wearing a fanny pack
- A smiling park employee
- A park employee cleaning up litter with tongs
- Someone laying down on a park bench
- A family all dressed similarly
Bring your mobile to the station jock and win a prize if you found all ten.

Mean Tweets I think Nick Offerman in 2014 was the first guest on Kimmel to do it and someone in every market has done or are doing, it now. To flip it would be what John & Tammy at KSON in San Diego did last year at Stagecoach and have people read "Teen Tweets". ...
