In the text message, Sarah wrote to her colleague, “Boop boops. We need to discuss on Inside.”
Michael replied, “Ken made a comment in the audience that the old sound effects we used when the dollar amounts were first displayed on the game board at the start of each round are one of the things he misses about the show.”
“We played a clip on our social channels. And people are responding that they also miss the boop-boop sound effects,” he continued.
