Mark & Mercedes celebrate 15 years in Las Vegas


CBS Radio’s Mix 94.1 (KMXB-FM) is having a party for Mark & Mercedes In The Morning’s 15 year anniversary in Las Vegas. The celebration starts at 8:00 p.m. on Friday, 3/23 at Rock’s Lounge inside Red Rock Casino Resort & Spa.

There will be live music throughout the party before Zowie Bowie takes the stage at 11:00pm. All listeners attending the party will be in the running for giveaways including a one year lease on 2012 Chevrolet Camaro courtesy of Findlay Chevrolet, $500 cash giveaways courtesy of Weight Watchers, and flyaway’s to see Mix artists; Train, Florence + the Machine, and The Fray. Admission is free and the first 400 people through the door will receive a free drink.

To honor the morning show & kick off the countdown to the party, Las Vegas Mayor Carolyn Goodman and former Mayor Oscar Goodman stopped by the studio to award Mark & Mercedes with a “Key to the City”.
Says Goodman: “15 years!  Nothing lasts that long, except the two of you.  We are so proud, and brought you a key to the city. As far as I’m concerned, I can’t think of anybody who makes a better contribution to our community than the two of you.  You’re out and about all the time at charitable events, and you make people happy!  What’s better than that?”

Mark & Mercedes in the Morning debuted on March 24th, 1997. In addition to the awards and accolades they have received for their community outreach and charity work, listeners have named them Las Vegas Review Journal’s “Best of Las Vegas” local radio personalities for over 12 years.

Sponsors for the event include Red Rock Resort, Casino & Spa; MetroPCS; Findlay Chevrolet; Weight Watchers Las Vegas; Tropical Smoothie Café and Retro Bakery.
