Meet the KARE 11 Ear

By Stephanie Tsoflias Siegel 

Every year KARE 11 sends video journalist, Ben Garvin, to the Minnesota State Fair to ask people a single question.

This year Garvin, who typically turns news packages for the evening newscasts, went on his annual special segment and asked people “what are you proud of?” He gets about 200 answers on average and picks only the most creative.

The most common answer this year was “kids.”

TVSpy talked to Garvin about his original idea for piece, who made the costume, how heavy it really is and why he wants people to take the ear nationwide.
