News 9 Anchors Ready To Pucker Up With Pig To Help Kids

Posted: Updated:

News 9 is a proud partner of the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma; and our anchors are so determined to raise money for hungry kids, they're ready to smooch swine.

This year at the Oklahoma State Fair, News 9 is having a "Kiss the Pig" contest to raise money for the Food For Kids program. The program gives children backpacks filled with food to take home each weekend. Otherwise, the children may not eat.

Here's how the contest works: News 9 has a tent set up at the State Fair. Lined up inside the tent are donation boxes with the pictures and names of our anchors. People can put money in the donation box of the anchor they'd most like to see kiss a pig. In the end, the anchor with the most money in his or her box will have to pucker up and plant one on a pig.

Here are the current standings:

1. David Payne

2. Kelly Ogle

3. Stan Miller

4. Amanda Taylor

5. Dean Blevins

6. Jed Castles

7. Bobbie Miller

8. Jim Gardner

If you want to see your favorite anchor kiss a pig, just go to the News 9 tent at the Oklahoma State Fair and put money into their donation box. The News 9 tent is located on the north side of the fairgrounds just inside Gate 1, and will be open from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. every day.

All money donated goes to the Food For Kids program.
