Y98 LISTENERS: Our contest line has changed! Missouri – (314) 531-9898 | Illinois – (618) 397-9898
By Paul Cook

It has become our #1 method of communication when we aren’t face to face. What year do you think the first text message was sent?

This Saturday (12/3) is the anniversary of the first text ever sent. SMS was born on December 3, 1992.

An engineer by the name of Neil Papworth sent the first text. What was the message? “Merry  Christmas.”

I also learned that 12/3 is the day Lance Hildebrand met his new bride. Lance, we hope you know you’re going to have to do more for this important anniversary than just sending Libby a celebration text.
