FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WOWO): A former WOWO personality is a lottery winner. 

Chris Underwood won $164,183 for hitting the Cash 5 jackpot on a Hoosier Lottery ticket that he purchased in Valparaiso. Underwood works as a floor supervisor at a casino in New Buffalo, Michigan, but maintains a Fort Wayne residence. 

Chris Underwood was a former night jock in the early 90s on WOWO. His father, Jack Underwood, was on the air at WOWO for almost 30 years from the 50s until the 80s. 

Underwood says he's been playing the same numbers since he worked at WOWO in the early 90s.
