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.
