Giant potato arrives at WDWS

Giant potato arrives at WDWS

NEW 5:20:  The potato has arrived at the WDWS radio center.


The Great Big Idaho Potato Truck left Ohio on Tuesday morning and has been making its way to Champaign ever since that time.

The Tater Team tells WDWS that the route that it's allowed to take contains some construction, and that has added some extra travel time.

So, the truck is now expected to arrive at the WDWS radio center no earlier than 5 p.m. Tuesday.  The potato will still spend the night at WDWS and be on display Wednesday morning.

Be sure to check the WDWS Twitter page for the latest updates.

"WDWS radio center"

?? Where the heck is that?  I would have gone.  Nice of you to give the twitter link, but even their lame twitter site doesn't give an address.


Next time, let's try to ensure that the essential facts of events are included in the story.
