ROCKFORD, Oct. 6 — On October 17, the second annual Bergstrom Stateline Quiz Bowl will begin airing three times per week for a 31-week-run. The competition is sponsored by Bergstrom Inc., Northern Illinois University and Northstar Broadcasting Group, Inc.
Nick Toma, Eyewitness News anchor, will return as the show’s host to test the knowledge of students from 32 area high schools; a notable jump from the 22 schools that participated last year. Kelly Lattimer, VP/General Manager of WQRF-TV, said, “The show exceeded my every expectation… As a local broadcaster serving the community it’s the kind of show we should be doing.”
Mystateline.com quoted Dixon Coach Tom Padilla on the competition’s visibility, “It’s a really nice thing to have these scholars on TV every week so that people in our area can see not just athletics and things like that but the incredible minds that our schools all across the Stateline area produce.”
