Station manager of Jersey City-based WFMU will fly in balloon-lifted lawn chair if donors contribute $180 K. "I weigh 180 pounds and we found out that it would take 180 balloons to lift me off the ground . So this just seemed like the obvious thing to do."
They have a $180k shortfall until the end of the year, so this is the stunt. One balloon for every $1,000 raised. It will be broadcast via webcam - 9:00 AM to 12:00 AM Eastern time.
