It began at KUAM in Guam.


Before going to KNBC in Los Angeles, California.



Then it arrived at KNBN in Rapid City, South Dakota.


Before going to KNEP in Scottsblffg, Nebraska.


And KVLY in Fargo, North Dakota.

And KCEN in Temple, Texas.


Before heading back north to KWQC in Davenport, Iowa.


Before crossing the Mississippi River and stopping by WMAQ in Chicago, Illinois.
