LINGO Premieres Its Sixth Season on April 2, With Legendary Game Show Host Chuck Woolery and "Dancing With The Stars'" Shandi Finnessey

Winners From GSN's Online Game Will Face Off Against Champions From Previous Seasons in Four Special Episodes New Online Competition Launches April 2

SANTA MONICA, Calif., March 26 -- LINGO will premiere its sixth season next month, making it the longest running original series at GSN, the network for games. Legendary host Chuck Woolery returns with co-host Shandi Finnessey, who is currently starring on "Dancing with the Stars." The sixth season will premiere Monday, April 2 and will air Monday through Friday 7:30-8:00 PM, ET.

Host Woolery is known by audiences worldwide for such popular classics as "Love Connection" and "Greed," both of which air on GSN, in addition to "Scrabble" and the first seven years of "Wheel of Fortune." Co-host Finnessey is also host of "quiznation," part of GSN's late night live PLAYMANIA block. The Miss USA of 2004 is also on the fourth season of "Dancing with the Stars" and authored a children's book -- The Furrtails -- which she developed to promote the inclusion of individuals with mental challenges. Originally from Florissant, Missouri, Finnessey hosts a blog site on gsn.com where fans can hear about her work on all three of her series.

The new season will also feature a series of episodes in which the champions of GSN's online LINGO game face off against the best players from previous television episodes.

LINGO is also expanding its interactive footprint by launching its third Lingo Online Tournament, also on April 2. Every week for ten weeks, the top tournament player from the online Lingo game will be awarded a trip to Los Angeles and be a contestant on an upcoming episode of the show. For details on the 2007 tournament and photos from 2006 tournament winners featured on air this season, go online to http://www.GSN.com.

In May, GSN will launch its first-ever Lingo podcast. Podcasts for other GSN shows, such as HIGH STAKES POKER, rank among Apple's most popular in the film and television category. LINGO is produced by Laurelwood Entertainment. Phil Gurin ("Weakest Link") and Marc Jansen serve as executive producers.
