Former Bemidjian on ‘Wheel’ tonight

BEMIDJI — Tonight’s the night Bemidji native Katie Hoody will appear on “Wheel of Fortune.”

The game show, taped in November, will air today at 6:30 p.m.

Katie, a Bemidji High School graduate who now lives in Texas, pursued an appearance on the popular game show as a gift for her dear friend Marion Dessert. The two were next-door neighbors whose relationship grew throughout the years.

When Katie’s mother, Mary, was diagnosed with cancer in 2012, Katie temporarily returned home. During that time, she and Marion developed a tradition of watching “Wheel of Fortune” together every night at Marion’s house.
