Each issue, two on-air talents from two different Zimmer Communications’ stations will take on a seemingly simple challenge to see who comes out on top. This issue, Josh Ryan from Clear99 and Joe Lose from 98.3 FM The Dove battled to see who could win an office chair race. Make sure you click here to see video of the full challenge!


Each contestant must mount a Zimmer office chair and make his way from one end of the hallway to the other at the starting countdown. First person to cross the blue finish line wins!


Josh Ryan from Clear99 was reluctant to take on the challenge at first but pushed through his fears to take on the coffee connoisseur, Joe Lose from The Dove. Joe brought his quiet yet excited spirit and prepared for the challenge of a lifetime.


As soon as the countdown ended, Josh and Joe were off, wheels turning as they focused on quickly moving backward through the hall. Joe initially took the lead as the hallway narrowed, but Josh used his strength to take hold of Joe and pull ahead (or, as Josh described it, “cheating”). This tactic proved successful until Joe started to catch up and the two grappled once more nearing the finish line. While he caught up with speed, Joe was no match for Josh’s fighting tactics, ending the race on the floor and Josh being declared the winner.


Josh: “I cheated, and if you aren’t cheating you aren’t trying.”
Joe: “That’s right, and I just lost.”
