On-Air Challenge

Every answer is a familiar two-word phrase with the initials G-E. For example, given the clue "traditional Christmas activity," the answer would be "gift exchange."

Name a city in the United States that ends in the letter S. The city is one of the largest cities in its state. Change the S to a different letter and rearrange the result to get the state the city is in. What are the city and state?

Answer: Yonkers and New York

Winner: Brett Ansite of Cresswell, Ore.

Next Week's Challenge

Name a famous American from the past who has seven letters in his or her last name. Take the last two letters, plus the first four letters, in that order, and you'll name that person's profession. Who is it?
