The 2017 Great American Treasure has been found! The Great American Treasure Hunt is an annual event hosted by 97.7 Kicker FM, Mix 96.7, WTLM AM 1520, and Hallelujah 910 AM. Last year the Hunt was awarded the ABBY Award for “Listener Contest of the Year” at the Alabama Broadcasters Best in Broadcasting Awards in Birmingham. The Hunt has been running for over 25 years and has changed very little in since its beginning.
This year’s hunt started back Monday June 10th and clues where given daily on the air leading the listeners to a tiny treasure chest hidden in the area. . This year’s winners is Trey Davidson!
