by | Aug 27, 2019 | Best Practices, Broadcaster Success, Megaphone Updates, Sponsorship & Advertising | 0 comments

MEGAPHONE TV’s MegaStars program shines a spotlight on the innovative ways that broadcasters are using interactivity in their programming. We want to applaud and share noteworthy features and segments from across the Megaphone family.

Our newest MegaStars are from KPNX Phoenix.

KPNX has created a deep, multifaceted integration with their sponsor, Earnhardt Auto Centers. Like any traditional sponsorship, the client receives logo placement both on-air and in-device. But KPNX has gone further to directly connect their sponsor to their viewers.

For one, KPNX changed the URL for their voting page to to align with the client’s “No Bull” branding. Every time the station promotes their poll and asks viewers to vote in the daily “Bullhorn”, Earnhardt Auto Centers receive a verbal mention of their brand.

Additionally, after voting in a poll viewers receive a pop-up offer that links them to the client’s website at with just the touch of a button.

Megaphone is designed to connect your broadcast audience to your digital properties. They see engaging content in-show, and then they go to your website to participate. Once they have connected with your digital property, you can guide them anywhere. To your client’s website or to your own promotional initiatives.

KPNX recently launched a new app, so to drive downloads they used Megaphone TV’s Pop-up App Install. After voting in a poll, viewers receive a pop-up offer that can connect them directly to Apple’s App Store or the Google Play Store. This enables KPNX to convert casual viewers directly into app users.

Remember, we are always looking for examples of:

  • Great interactive content

  • Strong payoff (audience participation affects a show in an impactful way)

  • Unique and engaging sponsorship or contesting

  • Technically innovative use of Megaphone in broadcast or live stream

If your team is using Megaphone in a cool or innovative way, email and you could be our next MegaStar!
