Flea Market Flip Watch & Win

While it may not feel like it in some parts of the country, springtime is right around the corner — which means warmer weather, longer days and the unofficial kickoff to flea market season! Great American Country is giving five lucky viewers the chance to rummage for hidden treasures with the “Flip for $5,000 Sweepstakes” every Sunday in March. The watch-and-win contest runs during Flea Market Flip, airing Sunday nights on Great American Country from 9 p.m. to midnight Eastern.

Led by Lara Spencer, co-anchor of Good Morning America and Host, EP and Creator of Flea Market Flip, the series shows viewers how a little cash can go a long way when mixed with creativity. Each episode showcases items as teams use their eye for style and a bit of hard work to turn someone else’s trash into treasure. Given only $500, Flea Market Flip contestants search flea market booths and tents for items they can “find, fix and flip” for a profit. They must then sell the rehabbed pieces with the team that makes the most money winning $5,000. Continue Reading

Toby Keith will narrate the story of his hometown of Moore, Oklahoma and the bond that was forged between the city and the Oklahoma City Thunder after a tornado devastated the area earlier this year. The 30-minute NBA TV Originals special, OKC Thunder: Heart of the City premieres November 22 at 7/6c on NBA TV.

The Thunder rallied behind the people of the Sooner state in the days after a powerful tornado nearly wiped out the city of Moore in May 2013. The team, led by Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook, visited the city immediately, working to raise the spirits of those affected by the storms.

Continuing to demonstrate its continued support to the city months after the tornado, the Thunder held a training camp practice at a high school in Moore as a sign that they would continue to be there for the residents as they work to get back on their feet. Toby, whose mother and sister live in Moore, brings a personal touch to the story as he reflects on how the storm impacted his own family.
