America's favorite game shows have found a new home this fall television season.
Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy! both return to 10 News beginning on Monday, September 17th. Wheel of Fortune will run Monday-Saturday at 7pm and Jeopardy! runs Monday-Saturday at 7:30pm, the same time slots as Tampa Bay viewers are used to.
WTSP carried "Wheel" and "Jeopardy!" from their first seasons, through 2007. "We are very excited to get these top rated programs back on WTSP," said Ken Tonning, President and General Manager. "Tampa Bay loves these shows and we're proud to bring them to our viewers."
The 10 News Morning Show is running a week-long series of behind-the-scenes reports, beginning September 17th. Morning Anchor Ginger Gadsden recently returned from a visit to Sony Pictures Studios in Culver City, California, where she was able to tour the facilities and interview hosts Pat Sajak, Vanna White and Alex Trebek.
Wheel of Fortune is kicking off its 30th season and to celebrate, America's Favorite Game Show aims to thank the fans who have kept the show on top all these years with more ways to interact with it, more puzzles to play and more cash to win. Over the course of the season, new elements will be introduced to the audience including a $5K Every Day Cash Giveaway, a Yahoo! Interactive Application, 30th Anniversary mobile game and several "Tweetstakes."
