Zoo Installing Wallace And Ladmo Bench

As you probably know, 99.9 KEZ has enjoyed a long relationship with the Phoenix Zoo, even providing the new name for our baby giraffe (Rafiki=Friend). Now the Zoo Has proudly announced that the longest-running children's television show in Valley history will be memorialized there with a very special bench. 

“Although other  locations were considered, the Phoenix Zoo best represented the spirit of the show,” said Rita Davenport, former KPHO host and president of the  Wallace and Ladmo Foundation.  “It’s a multi-generational gathering  place that showcases kids and animals – near and dear to us all.  In the  end, this was the only place that felt exactly right.”

“We are thrilled  to have this symbol of Arizona history right here at the Phoenix Zoo,”  says President and CEO of the Arizona Center for Nature Conservation  (ACNC)/Phoenix Zoo. “The sculpture will be displayed near the Zoo’s main  lake, offering a perfect location for guests and fans of the show to  reminisce about the iconic characters in a beautiful and unique  setting.”
