MISSOULA - A Missoula man had a great time on Wheel of Fortune Wednesday night and sent a shout out back to his home town.
Ken DeYoung solved one of the last puzzles of the night and went home with about $4,000. While he wasn't the big winner, he was very enthusiastic and exciting to watch.
He's just the latest in a string on Western Montana residents to appear on the popular show.
Dillon teacher Sharmayne MacEwan appeared earlier this month and brought home over $24,000.
Missoula's Greg Patent was on Wheel of Fortune back in December and took home more than $15,000 in cash and prizes, including a trip to exotic Antigua.
Last October, Mandie Fleming of Whitefish had the chance to spin for cash after auditioning for the show after the WheelMobile made a stop at the Missoula County Fairgrounds last year.
