Culver City, CA-- September 17, 2004-- Wheel of Fortune co-host Vanna White was in Kansas City today to announce that "America�s Game" will travel to the "City of Fountains" for the first time ever in April 2005.

Following her announcement, Vanna joined the Wheel of Fortune production team visiting various Kansas City-area locations to pre-tape segments for the May episodes, including the newly renovated Union Station, Ward Parkway, Meyer Circle, Nichols Fountain and the Country Club Plaza.

In April, Pat Sajak, Vanna White and the entire Wheel of Fortune production staff will be on hand to tape 15 episodes, over three days, before a local audience of thousands. A custom-designed set will be constructed at the Kansas City Convention Center and will feature images of the historic city and capture its unique flavor and all-American appeal.

"We are thrilled to be making our first-ever visit to Kansas City," said Executive Producer Harry Friedman. "Kansas City is among the most beautiful cities in America and will be a great setting for these exciting weeks of shows. We can�t wait to bring America�s Game to the heartland of America and to some of the most enthusiastic Wheel Watchers in the country."

"We are very excited about Wheel of Fortune coming to Kansas City in April. The taping will generate a tremendous amount of excitement for the show here in KC and will give many loyal "Wheel" fans a chance to fulfill their dream of actually being on the show. It�s also a once-in-a-life-time marketing opportunity for Kansas City to showcase itself to a nationwide audience of millions, " said Station Manager Craig Allison.
