Philly Home Show, Trading Stations Challenge

Hey everyone!

I’m Abby! A senior at Temple University, and an intern on BEN-FM’s Morning Show with Kristen Herrmann. Trying to stay warm this weekend but still want to get out of the house?  Here are my picks for events happening in and around Philadelphia this weekend.

Philly Home Show: (1/17-1/19) This is the final weekend for the Philly Home Show. It’s a great place is to visit home related displays and get ideas for your next home renovation project. Today at 11:45am, tune into Philly Live where Aunyea Lachelle will be revealing the winner of the Trading Stations Challenge, with Ikea live from the Philly Home Show. Our own Kristen Herrmann was in a design competition for the best office space design with two hosts from our sister stations, Andie Summers (WXTU) & Kathy Romano (BEN-FM’s Her Story show on Sunday mornings at 7:30 and also WMMR). Watch Kristen accept her WIN (hopefully) at 11:45am. Get your Philly Home show tickets HERE.
