Yolanda Vega, a retired New York Lottery announcer, will shortly make an appearance on the game show Family Feud with family members.
According to a programme spokeswoman, Vega will make an appearance on February 2 along with her daughters Rebecca Vega and Gabriella Gordon, son-in-law Nicholas Gordon, and niece Ana Ramos.
After 32 years of service, Vega retired from the lottery last year. She was well-known for her work as the host of lottery drawings, which included her trademark name announcement. The show claims that she and her family are from Brooklyn.
The local episode of Family Feud, hosted by comedian Steve Harvey, airs weeknights at 7:30 on WRGB, CBS6.
Additionally, there will be other families of regional relevance on Family Feud than the Vegas. Canajoharie’s Logan family is expected to make an appearance. To learn more about their impending appearance, check back later this week.
The Albany Times Union was the first to report about Vega’s impending appearance.
