Valley magnet gains national attention on Mythbusters Jr.

Posted: Updated:
YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio -

 A giant industrial magnet from right here in the Valley is gaining national attention as the star of a favorite TV show.

City Machine Technologies in Youngstown shipped their giant industrial magnet to the show Mythbusters Jr where they used it to see if they could destroy a computer.

It was a stunt that played out on the hit show Breaking Bad. CMT told 21 News it'd been an exciting run with the magnet that's been all over including the front lawn of the White House. 

"Well this is our little 3500-pound celebrity, and we are excited that we can showcase the Valley," said CMT Vice President Claudia Kovach.

You will be able to see if the myth is busted Saturday morning on Discovery Channel at 9:00 am.
