Local ABC Meteorologists Match Wits To Aid ‘Sandy’ Victims

Four meteorologists from ABC affiliates around the country will go head to head on the game show “Let’s Ask America” in order to benefit the American Red Cross.

(Pictured from left to right) Denis Phillips, chief meteorologist for Tampa Bay’s WFTS, Lisa Hidalgo, morning news meteorologist for Denver’s KMGH, Ashley Brown, meteorologist for Indianapolis’ WRTV, and Steve Raleigh, chief meteorologist for Cincinnati’s WCPO, won’t have to travel far to appear on the show which allows viewers to call in from anywhere via Skype.

The following description from the show’s websitetells what the forecasters can expect,

The game is simple: “Let’s Ask America” polls America about fun and irreverent topics to find out what people are thinking (e.g. Which of these shows did a group of prison inmates say they would choose to watch in their cell for an entire year? a) “Dr. Phil,” b) “Days of Our Lives,” c) “The View”). Then, all the contestants have to do is correctly predict the answer. The prize money increases with each question. There are three rounds and at the end of each round, the contestant with the lowest cash total is eliminated from the game.

The “Let’s Ask America” sweeps special benefits the American Red Cross to help out Hurricane Sandy victims and airs this Thursday at 7:30 p.m.  For a listing of cities where you can catch the show click here.
