Episodes of WV family on 'Family Feud' to re-air

20181227-gm-damronfeud1

The Damron family from West Virginia appears on “Family Feud” with host Steve Harvey, also from West Virginia, next week. The show is a rebroadcast from the family’s episodes in November.

In case you missed it the first time around, the Damron family from West Virginia will be on “Family Feud” Jan. 2, 3 and 4.

The shows are a rebroadcast of their three-day appearance in November.

West Virginia natives all, the family team included former coal executive and West Virginia House of Delegates member K.O. Damron from Mingo County; his wife Sherri, her twin sister Terri Ann and her husband Jack Dempsey, and Terri Ann’s daughter Nichole Bohannon all from Boone County.

Sherri instigated the family’s appearance on the television game show.

She said, “A little over a year ago I was sitting on my couch wondering how families get on ‘Family Feud.’ So, I did an online search and saw auditions were coming up in Charlotte, North Carolina.”

Sherri and K.O currently live in the Myrtle Beach area of South Carolina, but Sherri’s niece, Nichole Bohannon, lived near Charlotte. They invited Sherri’s sister Terri and her husband Jack Dempsey from Alum Creek.

The family stayed with Bohannon, who joined the two couples for the audition, though she had a touch of stage fright.

She said, “I don’t know what happened. I was fine and just before we left for the auditions, I got overwhelmed thinking we are really going to do this!”

The Damron family appeared on three episodes of the program and said they had a lot of fun and were pleased at the number of people who told them that they represented their home state so well.

“That was a very important goal for us,” they said.

K.O. Damron, who served as the family team captain said, “Between re-runs on TV and viewings on YouTube, we look forward to enjoying our Hollywood moments for years to come.”

“Family Feud” is seen on Fox-11 in the Huntington/Charleston area. Check local listings for air time.
