KIIM-FM's Buzzy writes verse to snag some votes

KIIM-FM radio personality Buzz Jackson sent a poem to voting members of the Academy of Country Music last week in hopes of snagging their support in his bid for medium-market radio personality of the year.

Jackson, fondly known as Buzzy when he takes the air for the weekday afternoon drive, was nominated last week. Among the field of nominees: Baton Rouge DJ Scott Innes, the new voice of Hollywood cartoon icon Scooby-Doo.

Jackson is hoping the following will strike a chord with voters:

"Roses are red, violets are blue/ I'm nominated for an ACM Award, and so is Scooby-Doo.
"You should cast your vote for me, and I'll tell you why: My daughter's voting for Scooby, which makes me wanna cry.
"I know choosing who to vote for is kinda fuzzy/ So won't you please mark your ballot for Buzzy?"

That should convince the academy.

In addition to his on-air duties, Jackson serves as KIIM's program director.
The ACM awards will be doled out May 23.
