IMB IQ Challenge was a major radio station tactic for Sydney radio station, 2GB. Commissioned by Macquarie Radio Network, it ran over a number of weeks, offering listeners the chance to win a guaranteed $1,000 every time played.
In 1990, sleepy old Radio 2KY pulled off the radio coup of the decade by poaching the high rating commentary team of Hollywood and Zorba. They also grabbed a handful of other Macquarie Radio on-air personalities including Mike Bailey, Ian Trent and Peter Shanahan, who joined existing Morning announcer Ray Warren at the Trades and Labour Council owned station.
The result was an instant lift in the sound of the station and for a short time, it was a case of, off with the cardigans and on with the footy jumper.

This was tightly scripted and rehearsed. After lunch and three full takes, to keep things fresh for the panelists, the autocue was changed, and a surprise ending added.
All the responses are therefore real and the result was a vehicle that showed off the best attributes of radio and defined it as a viable and credible advertising medium.
