---- — TRAVERSE CITY — A former Frankfort resident will appear on the national game show “Wheel of Fortune.”

Kim Rodal, of Frankfort, said her daughter, Kelly Rodal, 25, taped an edition of the show in March at Madison Square Garden in New York City. The episode will be broadcast locally on May 23.

“I was so excited and so proud,” said Kim Rodal, who traveled to New York to watch her daughter compete. “It was an amazing experience … she’s very smart.”

Kelly Rodal, of Manhattan, is a 2006 graduate of Interlochen Arts Academy. Kim Rodal said her daughter did well, but she cannot speak about her daughter’s session until after broadcast.
