Montel takes a spin at Wheel of Fortune

Baltimore-area-native Montel Williams will appear on Wheel of Fortune this week as part of the game show’s Celebrity Week.

The Andover High School graduate will take on the Food Network’s Sandra Lee and HGTV’s Kristan Cunningham on the show, which airs at 7pm locally.

Although the talk show host’s Web site lists the air date as “Thursday, November 14th”, Wheel’s schedule correctly labels today – Wednesday – as the 14th.

We’ll forgive Williams, who is playing – like the other celebrity contestants – for charity. In his case, his own multiple sclerosis foundation.

I’ll be tuning in, if only to see Sandra Lee attempting to solve the puzzle.

Update, noon: I’ve been schooled on Maryland’s ties to Wheel of Fortune. Turns out that host Pat Sajak owns a home in the Severna Park area and is a season ticket holder to the Washington Capitals. Oh, and Montel Williams’s father, Herman, served 40 years with the Baltimore Fire Department before retiring in 2000.
