Driving safe is not only smart, it’s cool. With another school year starting and students back in class, we’ve partnered with Pioneer and New Albany High School to promote safe driving among teens at last week’s Varsity football game against Gahanna-Lincoln! With technological advancements in car entertainment,
such as Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Pioneer’s exclusive AppRadio Mode, and Bluetooth for hands free calling and audio streaming, drivers will be less distracted with text messages and calls, and more focused on the road.
We set up a ‘tailgate’ area in front New Albany High School where attendees could check out our demo vehicles, including a jeep equipped with a Playstation, snap a pic in the photo booth (provided by greatphotobooth.com), play street hockey or football toss, and take a chance at a prize by spinning our prize wheel!
Prepare for the biggest tailgate this fall with 97.1 The Fan and Columbus Car Audio‘s FOOTBALL, BOURBON & BREW presented by Local Waste Services on Saturday, September 17th at Express Live! The day will feature craft beer and bourbon tastings, autograph sessions, live broadcasts of 97.1 The Fan’s Pre-Game and Tailgate Shows, food trucks, Scoonie Penn’s “Cornhole 4 Cancer” tournament and so much more.

Three former Ohio State university football players, Luke Fickell, Ryan Miller and Mike Vrabel, started the foundation in 1999. Inspired by their involvement in various community outreach programs as student athletes, they decided to continue making a difference by promoting literacy and providing positive role models for children in Central Ohio.
