Haritha Challapalli of Latham was recently a contestant on "Who Wants To Be
A Millionaire."

Haritha is a ER doctor who works at both the Ellis Hospital ER and area VA hospitals. She is used to the pressure.  

The mother of two recently auditioned for the show at Colonie Center, and was chosen to be a contestant. Haritha's mother flew to NYC from Chicago to be her on air companion. Because the show pre-records their episodes, we will still get a chance to see Haritha earn some cash.

How big did Hartha win? We find out this Friday on Newschannel 13 at 12:30 p.m.

The producers chose multiple people from Albany as possible contestants. We will keep you updated as we hear more.

The ABC show "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire," with new host Cedric "The Entertainer," airs weekdays at 12:30 p.m.
