Ho Ho Horrendous: Seton Leads Ugly Christmas Sweater Contest

Helping this year with Stand Up to Cancer‘s Second Annual Ugly Christmas Sweater campaign are the four Danettes. Their daily, charitable jousting began on The Dan Patrick Show the week of Thanksgiving and runs through December 20.

A rep tells FishbowlNY that Patrick O’Connor, a.k.a. Seton, has the early lead. Viewers of the radio show’s TV and online streams are being encouraged to text the name of their ugly-win Danette to 40202.

As he tells Joe Flint of the LA Times, his new bosses were none too thrilled with the idea, but he held firm and today, his daily joshing with the “Danettes” – executive producers Paul Pabst and Todd Fritz, operations director Patrick “Seton” O’Connor, and Sports Illustrated blogger Andrew “McLovin” Perloff — is a key reason why the program has amassed a combined weekly radio, TV, and online audience of around 2.5 million.
