“Chicagoland high school seniors deserve an epic night of celebration,” said James Howard, Region Senior Vice President of Programming for iHeartMedia Chicago and 103.5 KISS FM’s Program Director. “103.5 KISS FM couldn’t be more grateful that our friends and world-renowned DJ’s were willing to provide the music entertainment, while the most influential social media stars provide the companionship. This year’s high school prom may be at home due to the pandemic, but it’s going to be loud and never forgotten.”
