2949 PWNAGE in News!!!

On Tuesday, April 24th, WBBM-TV Channel 2 (CBS) News reporter, Vince Gerasole, will be reporting LIVE from the team’s meeting facility (Genesis Automation) in St. Charles. Team PWNAGE will be interviewed and will be demonstrating their competition robot during four 1:30 – 2:00 minute segments throughout the 5am-7am broadcast. The team will also be teaching Vince Gerasole how to drive the robot.

In addition, we have invited our friends Winnovation #1625 from Winnebago/Rockford, IL to join us at Genesis and share the limelight. They are going to bring their robot and 2 drivers to provide some LIVE "competition" for a little action packed fun at 4:30 in the morning.

Pwnage will also be featured in the Trib section on the Chicago Tribune next week Thursday in some of the Fox Valley areas.
They have already released the online Trib article...

We hope everyone in the channel viewing area (Chicagoland) can tune in Tuesday morning! For everyone else out there, it should be on their website after it airs. This should be a great way to get FIRST in the news!

-Nick

I'm glad that some of our fellow Illinois teams are getting some good publicity for themselves and FIRST. If they post the clip online, i'll be sure to watch it.

Re: 2949 PWNAGE in News!!!

Here are the clips from this morning's live broadcast. Special thanks to Team 1625 Winnovation for coming out to participate in the broadcast. Mr. Hill, Owen, and Arthur really helped make it a great spot for our FIRST community and hopefully got to show the Nations 3rd largest viewing audience what FIRST is all about. Hope to see everyone in St. Louis!
