Wallenda set to walk across Grand Canyon in June

SARASOTA - The Suncoast's very own highwire daredevil has announced the date for his next death-defying tightrope stunt.

Sarasota native Nik Wallenda will walk across the Grand Canyon on June 23rd-- without a harness.

ABC 7 was the only media who spoke with Wallenda as he walked high over Sarasota's bayfront in January.

Shortly after his nationally-televised walk over Niagara Falls last June, which aired live on ABC, Wallenda made his intention clear for the Grand Canyon walk. This time NBC's Discovery Channel will be airing the highwire king's big walk.
