The Jefferson City Convention & Visitors Bureau and local cable operator Mediacom, have announced that Jefferson City is one of six American cities chosen by C-SPAN to be featured in nationally-televised programs that will showcase the city's history and literary life.
C-SPAN will send a team of video-journalists to Jefferson City on June 4-8 to conduct interviews and film historical landmarks that will culminate in a series of programs to be broadcast three weeks later during a dedicated "Jefferson City weekend" on BookTV (CSPAN2) and American History TV (CSPAN3).
C-SPAN calls its initiative the "2012 LCV Cities Tour," in reference to the use of "Local Content Vehicles" (LCVs) and mobile video journalists who are dispatched to capture the history and literary life of unique American cities.
Mediacom and C-SPAN selected Jefferson City as one of six south-central American cities with a rich heritage that may not be widely familiar to a national television audience.
The special features on Jefferson City are scheduled to air on C-SPAN2's BookTV on Saturday, June 30th at 11a.m. and C-SPAN3's American History TV on Sunday, July 1st at 4p.m.
