Local Scrabble champs to appear on "Kimmel" show


Andy Hoang and Erik Salgado, the fifth-graders who recently won the 2009 National Scrabble Championship , are going national.

The two are scheduled to appear on ABC's "Jimmy Kimmel Live" on Tuesday.

The 11-year-olds -- who attend Salem Elementary in Apex, but live in Cary -- won the title last weekend, earning medals and $10,000. They were undefeated during the two-day contest. Read more about their adventure in Matt Ehler's story here.

"Jimmy Kimmel Live" airs at 12:05 a.m. weeknights on ABC.
