For the past six years, â€œThe Lambert and Lindsey Morning Showâ€ on 102.3 The Max has partnered with PNC Broadway in Louisville, to help sell subscriptions to Louisvilleâ€™s most well-liked theater performances. George Lindsey, Lynda Lambert and Jesse Rasmussen, the three, quirky individuals that make up one of Louisvilleâ€™s most popular morning shows, were recipients of The Broadway Leagueâ€™s â€œStar of Touring Broadway Awardâ€ on June 25.
â€œThey bring New York theater to Louisville and they convey it like no one else can,â€ Matthew Porter, Director of Public Relations for PNC Broadway in Louisville, stated after presenting the award to the three radio personalities. â€œWeâ€™ve been working with them for six years doing promotions and the audience really responds to them.â€
It was because of their hard work and creative promotions, helping put Broadway in Louisville in the top-selling percentile, that Lindsey, Lambert and Rasmussen received the prestigious honor.
â€œItâ€™s one of those partnerships that comes along once in a lifetime. All the pieces fit together with promotions, marketing, and the personalities,â€ Lambert said, adding, â€œIt doesnâ€™t hurt that we all have the same warped senses of humor.â€
â€œThe Lambert and Lindsey Morning Showâ€ broadcasted from New York City in March of this year to celebrate the opening of the 2012-2013 season of PNC Broadway in Louisville, and featured interviews with the playsâ€™ actors, directors and dancers.
â€œWe are honored. And absolutely shocked,â€ stated the showâ€™s front man, George Lindsey.
The on-air personalities were also awarded at The Kentucky Centerâ€™s performance of Billy Eliot on June 26. The Louisville Theatrical Associationâ€™s President, Brad Broecker, and Brand Ambassador for Four Roses, Al Young, presented the award.
â€œIâ€™m so new to the show that being a part of this and being recognized at this level is so surprising to me. Weâ€™ve got such great partners it makes our jobs easy. I feel so lucky to be a part of the show with great partners like PNC Broadway in Louisville and Four Roses,â€ Rasmussen stated after the reception on Tuesday. â€œIâ€™m speechless and for me, thatâ€™s a first.â€
