“We’ve looked at every aspect of the Shootout and are constantly striving to better our event,” said Ron Duggan, president of the Lake of the Ozarks Shootout and owner of Captain Ron’s, the Sunrise Beach location that has hosted the annual top-speed happening for the past 12 years as it’s grown from a weekend gathering to a weeklong extravaganza. “Benne Media has brought another level of professionalism to the event and we’re very comfortable with our relationship moving forward.”
Along with steadfast internet streaming, the 2019 Shootout television coverage aired statewide and on several regional cable systems.
“We’ll continue to designate Cool 102.7 as the only radio outlet for the event,” said Denny Benne, who is excited to partner with the event, which is presented by Performance Boat Center, once again. “In addition to raising more than $350,000 for lake area charities in 2019, the Shootout is the lake’s single largest event and the perfect opportunity to showcase everything the lake offers. It deserves this type of effort and coverage. We’ll continue to explore even more opportunities for exposure in other markets.”
