Jono and Ben at Ten and The Rock are bringing 90s rap icon Vanilla Ice to New Zealand for a one-off concert at Auckland’s Powerstation on Friday 24th October, thanks to V’s ‘Give it a V’ campaign.

“The ‘Give it a V’ campaign is about opening up to consumers and clearly showing them what it actually means to give something a V,” says Luke Rive, Energy Category Manager at Frucor. “Take the ordinary, everyday, and set about making it awesome.” The energy drink has already given a V to darts, art, even photo-bombing!

It was bound to happen. Mediaworks have put the successful pairing of Jono Pryor and Ben Boyce to good use and given them the drive show on The Rock.  I bet Guy Williams is already planning his revenge for this then.

Jono and Ben at Ten fans can now enjoy their favourite TV pranksters five days a week with Ben Boyce joining Jono Pryor to co-host of THE ROCK Drive.  The new Drive show starts late April.

Boyce spent six months co-hosting THE ROCK’s Night Show in 2004/2005 and is looking forward to returning to radio alongside his best mate. Continue reading »
