Champaign doctor to appear on Jeopardy Thursday

For the second time this year, a local resident will make an appearance on a popular game show.

Dr. Kate Kwiatkowski practices psychiatry at Carle in Champaign, and Thursday afternoon, she'll make an appearance on Jeopardy.

Kwiatkowski said her episode was taped in August, and that she's having a watch party on Thursday afternoon with her neighbors.  She said she's wanted to be on the show since high school and had been taking the online application test for several years before she was selected.

Kwiatkowski's episode airs at 4:30 p.m. Thursday on NBC.

Back in July, University of Illinois employee Dawn Owens-Nicholson appeared on Jeopardy, placing second.
