First News with Keeler in the Morning is in the midst of a weight loss challenge and that could mean $500 in cash for you, compliments of our sponsor, Joe and Andrew Hobika of the Hobika Law Firm on Genesee Street in Utica!

We did the first weigh-in for our seven-week weight loss challenge on Monday, September 29th.  Bill Keeler, News Director Jeff Monaski and Producer Andrew Derminio are competing to be the show member who loses the most weight in seven weeks.

So, who will win?  Take our poll?

Here's where they're starting on the scale:

  • Andrew: 246 lbs.
  • Jeff: 261 lbs.
  • Bill 196 lbs.

Now, here's how the contest works:  Listen to Keeler from 6 - 9 a.m. and get set for us to take your guesses by calling 315-736-0186 when we ask you to call.

Guess who loses the most weight and how much he loses by the final weigh-in on Monday, November 10th at 7:35 a.m..  The correct person who comes closest wins a $500 Visa Card compliments of The Hobika Law Firm.  (In the event of a tie, one winner will be drawn from everyone who guessed closest.)

Need more info?  Call the Keeler Show anytime Monday through Friday between 6 and 9 a.m. and we'll fill you in!  Good luck!

By the way, the person who comes in 2nd place will put up $50 for the upcoming Keeler Toy Drive and the 3rd place finisher must pay $100.  We might even add a few additional punishments down the road.  Stay tuned!
