Tuesday, September 15, 2020

KXTV-CHANNEL 10 (SACRAMENTO) -- Austin Castro is still pinching himself after his appearance on Wheel of Fortune. The Modesto native, who’s currently a student at San Francisco State, was trying for several months to get on the show, and when he finally got the call, it made it all worth it.

“I told my professor, ‘Hey I have to miss class next week because I’m on Wheel of Fortune'," Castro said. "And I’m pretty sure that’s an excuse they’re never heard. I’m just so grateful to have this opportunity and I still can’t believe its real. I have to watch the episode to remind myself that actually happened. I’m just so thankful to have this opportunity and I wouldn’t change it for anything.”

Castro is currently studying communications and he just landed a job as production assistant at KPIX in the Bay Area.
