Student and family featured on KARE-11

Marketing management major Samantha Lucking '12 and her family's backyard were chosen for KARE-11's "Summer Backyard Tour" on Wed. Aug. 4.

KARE-11 invites viewers to submit photos of their yard to KARE-11 via Facebook.  Winners chosen have their backyard featured during a live weather segment with KARE-11 Meteorologist Belinda Jensen.

"It was extremely interesting to see how a weather newscast is put together," said Lucking. "KARE-11 brought their big truck with the satellite so they could communicate with the station in Golden Valley. It was fun to talk with the cameraman and especially Belinda. She grew up in Prescott so she said she was a little familiar with the area (we're right outside of Hastings) and knew of some people who live close by.  We had so much fun!"
