HEY! YOU NEVER KNOW WHO’S LISTENING!

THE EFFERVESCENT MISS VICK FROM WLUC TV6!

Congratulations to our latest winner of the Great Doughnut Race, the one and only U.P. sports maven, Mike Ludlum of TV 6.  He was the first correct caller with the correct answer to the question, “What Major League Baseball Hall of Famer was known as “The Vacuum Cleaner”?  The answer, Brooks Robinson.  He picked up a certificate good for two dozen doughnuts from the Huron Mountain Bakery in Marquette.  HOORAY!!  Good for Mike!!

BUT, WAIT A MINUTE….That’s not TV6’s Mike Ludlum in this picture!

It’s TV6’s very own morning personality, Vicky Crystal!  The “much too busy to go to the radio station” Mike Ludlum sent her instead to do his errands!  She’s so nice to him!  It was cool to see Vicky, though, after all of these years!

Hope the doughnuts were tasty, you loveable TV guys!


CHEERS!
