A Warwick man unemployed for two years wins big in a national radio contest.
Scott Hayes won a thousand dollars a few weeks ago in clear channel radio's nationwide "text to win" contest. Hayes, a listener to Providence's B101, texted in and became a finalist for the $50,000.
Hayes said he thought it was a long shot that he'd actually win the grand prize. Hayes was shocked when he got the call that he'd won.
"When I got the call yesterday, i was in the middle of changing her that was pretty funny too, but I didn't want to miss the call. unbelievable, i'm still in shock," said Hayes.
He plans use the money to pay some bills and treat his kids to a well deserved family trip.
