Jeff Varner 'Survives' A Day With WRAL

Posted July 11, 2001

— Would ex-Survivor's Jeff Varner survive a day at WRAL? We planned a day of challenges and activities just for him.

The

Greensboro native

and UNC-Chapel Hill graduate was up before dark, talking to listeners at Mix 101.5 WRAL-FM.

Later, we challenged Jeff to teach WRAL's Mark Roberts how to "cheer" along side N.C. State's championship squad.

Mark was a good sport, but has decided to stick to his day job.

A famished Jeff was quickly whisked off to have lunch with winners of a MIX 101.5 radio contest. Then it was off to Chapel Hill for a special visit with patients at the

North Carolina Jaycee Burn Center

.

Back in Raleigh to wrap up his day, the former Kucha tribe member went online to chat about his Survivor experience with WRAL.com visitors.

It was a fun, busy day -- and Jeff survived!
