Welcome to Des Moines' People's Choice

Des Moines is a unique place. We live, shop, eat and play in the heart of America and we wouldn’t have it any other way. Des Moines Radio Group is presenting

Des Moines’ People’s Choice once again to engage the community in celebrating the places, restaurants, and local businesses we love.


Last year, over 2,100 businesses, organizations, and individuals were nominated to compete for the top two spots in Des Moines’ People’s Choice. In the end, there were more than 106,000 votes by our audience in 238 categories. It is a fantastic response in our first year and a testament to how customers, fans, and friends feel about their local favorites and their pride in Central Iowa.

Des Moines' People's Choice Promotion

Des Moines’ People’s Choice has strong support from all nine Des Moines Radio Group stations.


Nominations and voting are driven by recorded promotional commercials and live support on all nine stations. Additional paid and organic social media promotion accompany the on-air promotion.

Promotion begins prior to nominations, during nominations, prior to voting, during voting, prior to results, and during our big reveal of the 2023 winners.

Des Moines Radio Group will put over $72,000 in on-air support and social media promoting Des Moines’ People’s Choice, driving participation and ensuring success for our community and local businesses.
