This week is the kick off to Season 13 of American Idol.  This year's competition is especially exciting for our listening area as two local talents are setting out to win golden ticket to Hollywood.  Kaitlyn Jackson of Norwich, New York, and Ethan Harris of Garrattsville, New York are both competing to be the next American Idol. 

These two young, local singers are perfect examples of the great talent that our area has to offer.  We at Townsquare Media are incredibly proud of both of them.  Kaitlyn and Ethan have become friends over the years, meeting at our Junior Idol competition in 2011, where they both won their age division. That's worth repeating. They were our 2011 Junior Idol contest winners and now they are making their mark on American Idol itself! We wish them both the best of luck.

Audition rounds start this week.
