COX MEDIA AND ESPN BRING POPULAR SPORTS TRIVIA QUIZ SHOW

2-MINUTE DRILL TO TCC’s ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY CENTER

Chesapeake, VA (Sept. 3, 2003) – Cox Media and ESPN are teaming up once again to bring the popular game show “2-Minute Drill” back to Virginia Beach on Sat., Sept. 6 at 1 p.m. The event, which will be hosted by Trey Wingo from ESPN’s popular SportsCenter, will be held at TCC’s Advanced Technology Center on Princess Anne Rd. The touring quiz show is a spin-off of the popular ESPN TV game show of the same name in which contestants battle to the finish by demonstrating their sports trivia prowess. Cox Media is the advertising sales division of Cox Communications.

The first 100 contestants to show up at the event will compete to earn the opportunity to test their knowledge of sports-related trivia posed by ESPN personalities and sports celebrities. All contestants will receive ESPN prizes, and the grand prize winner will take their pick of an all-expense-paid trip for two to either the X-Games in Los Angeles or the ESPY Awards in Hollywood.

“We’re thrilled to partner with ESPN to bring the 2- Minute Drill back to Virginia Beach,” said Frank Bowers for Cox Communications. “Taking the 2- Minute Drill on the road allows us to bring a popular national program to our local sports fans. The event will be a great day out the whole family will enjoy and an opportunity for people in our community to win the trip of a lifetime.”

Last year, more than 400 people attended the 2-Minute Drill event at Peabody’s at the Virginia Beach Oceanfront. The grand prizewinner from Virginia Beach was a special guest of Cox and ESPN at The ESPY Awards in Los Angeles.

New this year is the opportunity for attendees to play the Super Shots Basketball Game and create their own customized vDVDideo at the You Call the Play kiosk. Prizes are furnished by ESPN and local event sponsors including Patriot Computers and Priority Chevrolet. Cox Communications and ESPN are also sponsoring a sweepstakes for a Sega Xbox and great ESPN Xbox games. Consumers can register for a chance to win at Priority Chevrolet Toyota or Patriot Computers locations.
