The big winners: CJ’s PIZZA and Giant Grinders!


Megaphone TV client and audience engagement superstars WFSB Hartford recently held their annual Pizza Playoffs, and over 300,000 votes were cast for the best slice in Connecticut.

Over several weeks, the Pizza Playoffs were to decide who had the best pizza in the Nutmeg State.

Sponsored by Nutmeg State Financial Credit Union, WSFB used Megaphone TV’s audience engagement platform to hold the contest where viewers could vote on who they thought made the best pizza in the state.

Pizza joints were pitted against each other using a classic playoff bracket structure and judged by the tastebuds of the good citizens of the Land of Steady Habits.

viewers voted on who was best.

WFSB is no stranger to food faceoffs, and last year’s Ice Cream Social scored over 40,000 votes for the state’s favorite scoop.

While stations like WFSB regularly use Megaphone TV for news polling and interactive sponsorship, these contests are also a great way to build deeper connections with local communities and brand exposure statewide.

It’s also a ton of fun for audiences.

In case you were wondering, the winning slice belonged to CJ’s Pizza and Giant Grinders.
