LOCAL MEDIA LOVE THE PCH PRIZE PATROL

Prize Patrol

When we pay a surprise visit to a Publishers Clearing House Sweepstakes winner we always have a Prize Patrol cameraman along to tape the “winning moment.”  The footage provides a wonderful record for the winner to share with family and friends while the highlights get a national showing in our TV commercials, at pchtv.com and in our YouTube archives.

Residents in the area often get an additional perspective on the “winning moment” from local TV and newspaper reporters invited to cover the event.  The media folk meet us at the florist where a bouquet of roses has been pre-ordered and where our PCH logo balloons will be blown up.  Then they follow our van as we head out to find the winner.

You would think that reporters would be used to covering big stories and experiencing excitement in the course of their work.  But it never fails: they are blown away — that the PCH Prize Patrol is in their town, and then again when they witness first-hand the winner’s shock when they open the door.

“Gosh, this is amazing!” a newsman will exclaim.  “We never get to cover anything like this. It’s always a fire or a burglary or a pile-up on the interstate.  This is such good news!”

Afterwards a reporter will interview us with lots of questions: “This must make you feel great, right?  Do you realize you have the greatest job in the world?  Aren’t you the same guys we see on TV?  Wait ‘til I tell my wife and kids!”

It’s kind of funny that these TV reporters — who are often local celebrities in their own right –are “star-struck” over us.  After all, Todd, Danielle and I  are just ordinary people.  But it’s true: we have had the good fortune to be PCH employees with very unusual job descriptions.

Of course we are not the only ordinary people who have experienced good fortune.  I can think of many more – like the hundreds and hundreds of PCH winners to whom we’ve presented Big Checks – worth almost a quarter of a billion dollars!

With some luck you could join that group.  But remember: you can’t win unless you enter the Publishers Clearing House Sweepstakes.  So enter today.  Believe me, if you win, the Prize Patrol – and the TV and newspaper folks in your area – will be thrilled to meet you.
