On-Air Challenge

Each word you're given has the letters C-H within it. Rearrange the letters to come up with an anagram that begins with C-H. For example, "inch" becomes "chin."

Challenge From Last Week

Take the two-letter postal abbreviations for three U.S. states. Add the letter A. Then add the two-letter postal abbreviations from three more states. You'll have 13 letters in all. Reading from left to right, you'll get a familiar three-word phrase that's seen on many products. (Hint: The three words in the answer phrase have four, two and seven letters respectively.) What's the phrase?

Answer: Made in America

Winner: Sharon Werner, Baton Rouge, La.

Next Week's Challenge

Think of a person's job title that contains the consecutive letters C-H. Move the C-H to the front, then take what used to be the first letter and put it where the C-H was. The result will be another person whom the first person tries to catch. What words are these?
