LOTTERY REVEALS HOSTS FOR GAME SHOW
A Tulsa prep school teacher and a grad student from Norman will be the hosts of the upcoming Oklahoma Lottery Game Show, a televised game show scheduled to premiere Saturday, Oct. 13 at 6 p.m. on KOCB Channel 34 in Oklahoma City.
Tulsa resident, Brad Morris, is the show’s host. Morris, 38, is a husband and father of four, and the director of music at Edison Preparatory School in Tulsa. His co-host is 28-year-old Amber Dickinson, a native of Norman, Oklahoma, currently working on a Ph.D. in political science at the University of Kansas.
According to Oklahoma Lottery Executive Director Jim Scroggins, Morris and Dickinson were chosen for the show’s lead roles based on their ability to connect with a live audience with style and humor.
“The casting process was arduous, but we are confident that we have chosen the right individuals to represent the Oklahoma Lottery in this exciting project,” Scroggins said. “Brad and Amber have great charisma and we believe Oklahomans are going to love them.”
Scroggins said the selection committee was also very impressed by Morris and Dickinson’s passion for education.
There are currently a total of 52 episodes of The Game Show scheduled to be taped at the Stage Center in downtown Oklahoma City. Each 30-minute episode will feature seven contestants, six new players and a returning champion, competing for cash and other prizes. One contestant will have the opportunity to win up to $50,000 in cash in the championship game.
