Theme picked for Trivia 49 in Stevens Point

By  | 

STEVENS POINT, Wis. (WSAW) -- The next theme has been chosen for the world's largest trivia contest.

Trivia coordinator Jim Oliva, or as he's commonly known, "The Oz", made the announcement over the airwaves of UW Stevens Point's 90 FM Saturday. Oliva tells NewsChannel 7 the theme he picked for next year fits well with what it's like for players who participate in the contest each year.

"The trivia theme this year is the 'Trivia Rush of 49.' Because it's the 49th year, and playing Trivia is a rush. It really is," Oliva explained. "It goes non-stop for 54 hours."

While Trivia 49 is no doubt important to those who play it each year, Oliva says its popularity is one of the reasons 90 FM continues to remain on the air.

Trivia 49 takes place from April 13-15 in 2018.
