SYRACUSE -- Ladies, if you've ever wanted the chance to go out on a date with NBC3 (WSTM) meteorologist Peter Hall, here's your chance! Ted and Amy from the 93Q (WNTQ) morning show have announced Hall will be this year's celebrity eligible bachelor for their annual "Five Dates in Five Days" contest.
Hall has been forecasting the weather since 1993, and joined NBC3 in 1995. He currently co-hosts the station's early-morning "Today in Central New York," along with Lisa Spitz.
According to a press release from 93Q, Hall is scheduled to visit the studio for a live chat with Ted and Amy tomorrow morning at 8:35am. That will officially open the contest, for which female listeners will be invited to submit their photo and a brief bio to 93Q. Hall will review the entries and select five finalists.
Each day during the week of February 3-7, Hall will take one of the finalists out to lunch. Each following morning, Ted and Amy will ask Hall and his date to discuss how things went. After all five dates have been discussed, listeners will be invited to vote for their favorite on the 93Q website. (All of the interviews will also be posted there in case you miss any of them when they air live.)
The date with the most votes by 7:00am on February 15 will win a room for four women at the sold-out Amy's Slumber Party, which will be celebrating its 10th anniversary at the end of February.
Last year, 93Q ran the same contest with Mark Nicotra as the celebrity bachelor. Nicotra has been Supervisor of the Town of Salina since 2008. Before that, Nicotra worked for 13 years as a photojournalist at NBC3.
