KISS FM morning personality "Kekeluv" is getting ready for this year's "Live for 175" - it starts tomorrow at 10 a.m.!

For those of you who haven't heard about what he's up to yet... he's going to spend 7 days broadcasting LIVE, while living in a clear structure up on a billboard on the corner of Front Street and 9th Street in downtown Boise!

He's also going to fast the entire 7 days. You'll be able to watch his every move 24 hours a day. He'll be on display for all to see! You'll also be able to see his adventures online on KISS FM's website.

Why is he doing it? To prevent child abuse in Idaho. For years now he's been raising awareness in our community, and his motto is "It shouldn't hurt to be a child"...

Today, he told me he's now officially off solid foods, and drinking a lot of protein shakes and smoothies to get ready for the fast. He's been hitting the gym, so that he's in top shape. He's busy packing lots of warm clothes too! He'll need them, the weather will be cold and rainy.  

The clear structure he'll be living in is coming along, and will be debuted at about 12 p.m. today downtown. It can only hold 1000 pounds. The broadcast equipment alone is about 300 pounds. Then there's Keke, and all the extras he needs to get by. He won't have a bed, just a roll up mat to sleep on. He'll be "roughing it" in the sky.

Check out the structure he'll be living in - it will be in place this afternoon at the corner of Main and 9th. You can get a sneak peek of Keke's new digs!
