A Wheel of Fortune contestant guessed a 12-letter phrase in the bonus round Wednesday night with only two letters revealed — and he won $45,000.

DAVID GREENE, HOST:

And our last word in business today: N-E.

LINDA WERTHEIMER, HOST:

Any?

GREENE: And not any, the word, but the letters N-E. Those are actually the only two clues the "Wheel of Fortune" guest had Wednesday night when trying to guess a 12-letter phrase in the bonus round.

(SOUNDBITE OF GAME SHOW, "WHEEL OF FORTUNE")

EMIL DE LEON: New baby buggy. New baby - new - oh...

GREENE: Incredible. Whether it was luck or not, I don't know. He won $45,000 and seems like deserves every penny. That's the business news on MORNING EDITION from NPR News. I'm David Greene.

WERTHEIMER: And I'm Linda Wertheimer.
