MAGNOLIA, Ohio - Pamela Koch of Magnolia will compete on "Let's Ask America " tonight at 7:30 p.m. for a chance to win up to $50,000.
"Let's Ask America" is the TV game show where contestants can win money from the comfort of their own homes. Four contestants are chosen to play the game via Skype, answering questions about fun and irreverent topics to find out what people are thinking.
Koch, 51, is from a small town near Canton called Magnolia, which has a population of less than 1,000.
Last summer Koch, a morning show host on News/Talk 1480 WHBC in Canton, applied to be a contestant on Let's Ask America. She and her mother watch the game show every night. Her mother encouraged her to apply to be on the show, knowing should would be a great choice.
"I was in shock when they called and told me I had made it," Koch said. "I was jumping up and down and I called my mom to tell her. She was so happy, too!"
She said it was difficult to practice for the show, but actually being on the show was one of the best times she's ever had.
"My favorite moment was when I got that first question right," she said. " I felt like 'I can do this! I'm on my way!' It was nothing like I expected, it was better. I had no idea really what to expect."
Koch said she loved the experience. Though she was nervous at first, once the show started to roll it all turned out to be a great time.
Tune in to NewsChannel 5 tonight at 7:30 p.m. to see Koch compete to win up to $50,000 on "Let's Ask America!"
