Local luminaries are fit for King


From the “Rock and Roll Winemaker” to the “Muffler Man,” some of Walla Walla’s big personalities are in the spotlight this week on Seattle’s King 5 Evening Magazine.

On Thursday, the network ran a piece on Charles Smith and his Charles Smith Wines having emerged as one of the top 10 biggest wine producers in Washington state. Tonight the program will feature Mike Hammond, the owner of Melody Mufflers and artist who uses his parts as a medium. The show will also feature former NFL quarterback-turned Doubleback winery owner Drew Bledsoe, whose likeness was created into a Muffler Man work of art.

Hammond said the program is set to air at 7 p.m. Those who can’t watch can catch them in reruns online by visiting King5.com and clicking on “Evening News.” The video links are available there.
