On Wednesday, June 12, the showing of Who Wants to Be a Millionaire asked a question many Twin Tier locals wouldn’t have missed. 

The two contestants were asked “Martinsville, Darlington, Watkins Glen, and Sonoma are all names of what?” The question was followed with four answer choices such as: historically black collages & universities, civil war battlegrounds, NASCAR racetracks, and former state capital cities.

Many locals didn’t think the contestants would get the correct answer but after much deliberating, they were able to guess the correct choice and walk away with their cash prize. 

Who Wants to Be a Millionaire airs weekdays at 12:30 P.M. and 3:30 P.M.
