Winston-Salem is answer in Wheel of Fortune puzzle

(Winston-Salem Journal) - Recognizing the name of Winston-Salem helped a California homemaker win $17,050 in cash and prizes on Wheel of Fortune.

In the episode that aired on WFMY-TV last night, contestant Kari Mason from Clovis, Calif., was presented with the category “On the Map.” Starting with N, R and O, she eventually got the puzzle spelled out all the way to “Winston-Sale_ - North Carolina” before answering the puzzle.

The prizes she earned in that round included a gift certificate and a trip to Panama. She went on to win $27,850 on the game show, which is seen by an estimated 47 million viewers nationwide every week, and came in first place.
