Lubbock woman gets her dad on national TV

By James Clark | email

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) A Lubbock woman gets her dad featured on the Today Show.  Niki Newell, 23 of Lubbock entered her dad's name for the Today Show father's day makeover contest.   And she won... or... that is to say her father won.  

Niki's dad, Eric Newell, of Racine Minnesota talking to KTTC TV says, "When I first got the call, I thought it was a telemarketer.  I was at work, trying to fix something.  The phone rang, I picked it up. She started going on about flying to New York. And I said 'What are you trying to sell to me?'  And my daughter hadn't told me about it; total surprise."

Niki and her dad were both in New York Wednesday night.   Presumably, both of them will be shown as part of dad's makeover, in the 10 o'clock hour of the Today Show Thursday morning.
