If you watch KCOS on Saturday mornings, you’ve probably seen High Q, the quiz show that features teams of local high schoolers getting really ridiculously hard questions to ask. The season finale of High Q’s 34th season is going to be filmed in front of a live audience tonight at 7 p.m., at the historic downtown Plaza Theatre. Doors will open at 6:00 p.m. and the public is invited to attend.

Teams from Coronado and Ysleta High School will be vying for the championship title after having beat out the competition in the 26-team academic challenge tournament. The event will start with musical, dance, and cheer performances by both high schools, and then at 7 p.m., the cameras will start rolling. Chris Babcock, Editor-in-Chief of the El Paso Herald-Post will emcee the event and Dr. Richard Pineda, associate professor of communications at UTEP, will be the High Q host.

In addition to the high schoolers battling it out, there will also be a version with adults. I’ll be joining Jon Eckberg from SummitCare, Dr. Dave Williams from El Paso Feet, and Arthur Perez from KTSM as we take down former El Paso Times editor, Bob Moore, Bryan Crowe from El Paso Live, and Maggie Asfahani from Salt +Honey Bakery Café.

The best thing about being on a team is that when they ask any question I don’t know the answer to, I can just stand around and mumble and look like I'm contributing possible answers so that everyone won't know I don't know the answer.

I'm a master strategist.

Come see the show and help keep KCOS on the air in El Paso!
