12/23/2003

COLUMBIA, S.C. – Starting December 29, 2003, Upstate lottery players will have to tune into the South Carolina Education Lottery’s (SCEL) newest draw station, WHNS-TV FOX Carolina. FOX Carolina will broadcast the nightly drawings as well as the Powerball Instant Millionaire game show. WSPA-TV initially aired the lottery drawings.

To celebrate the move, SCEL and FOX Carolina are planning several promotional opportunities area residents can win.

“The charge of the SCEL, improving educational resources for South Carolina children and young adults, is a mission of fundamental interest to FOX Carolina’s audience,” said Stan Crumley, VP and General Manager, FOX Carolina. “Fox Carolina views our new partnership with the South Carolina Educational Lottery as an important opportunity to address the well-being of children in the Greenville-Spartanburg-Anderson television market.”

“We’re thrilled to have FOX Carolina join the SCEL as an official draw station,” said Ernie Passailaigue, executive director of the SCEL. “Through our partnership, the lottery and FOX Carolina are excited about the opportunities that will be beneficial to not only both parties involved but our players alike.”

FOX Carolina will air the nightly Pick 3 and Pick 4 drawings at 6:59 p.m. Powerball drawings will be held each Wednesday and Saturday at 10:59 p.m. and Carolina 5 drawings will air on Tuesdays and Fridays at 11:00 p.m.

Other SCEL draw stations include WLTX-TV in Columbia, WRDW-TV in Aiken, WPDE-TV in Florence/Myrtle Beach, WCBD-TV in Charleston, and WWWB in Rock Hill.
