(ZIZ)– One of the 2013 National Carnival Queen contestants is being sponsored by ZIZ Broadcasting Corporation.
Contestant number two, 18-year-old Shakeda Gerald will be representing ZIZ in this year’s pageant.
General Manager, Clement O’garro says this is one of the ways ZIZ is growing its sponsorship of Sugar Mas 42.
He says, “Traditionally of course, ZIZ in the early days of the 555 AM was the carnival station and even though now we are on FM 96.1, we’re still the carnival station…so we wanted to make sure that we were an integral part of Sugar Mas.”
Gerald officially received her ZIZ sash during a ceremony held at Stone Wall Monday evening.
The other four contestants for this year’s pageant are Yarayni Morton, Lasanna Yearwood, Kaeve Armstrong and Brianda Harvey.
The National Carnival Queen pageant is scheduled for Friday, December 27.
