RSU TV Premieres Tourism Program Oct. 13
Rogers State University Public Television will debut "Green Country People and Places," a new tourism program, on Thursday, October 13 at 7:30 p.m. The 13 episode program will air each Thursday evening at 7:30pm and repeat at 6am the following Wednesday morning.
The show follows host Tim Yoder and photographer Bryan Crain as they travel Oklahoma's Green County in search of interesting people and unique places. Each episode is an in-depth look at two to three Oklahoma points of interest. Viewers will meet the people responsible for the attractions, hear their stories and be taken behind-the-scenes, where the general public rarely gets to go.
Some of the attractions to be featured this season: Batfish War Memorial Park, Prairie Song Pioneer Village, Tulsa Air and Space Museum, Dick Tracy Museum, Spiro Mounds Archeological Center and Darryl Starbird's Hot Rod Museum and Hall of Fame.
Yoder is a two time Heartland Emmy winner who has produced, written and hosted for RSU Public Television for more than 20 years. He has produced hundreds of hours of prime time programming including the nationally distributed and award-winning series Woodturning Workshop.
Crain is a two time Heartland Emmy winning director and photographer and has worked for RSU Public Television for almost 15 years. In addition to being the director and photographer for Green Country People & Places, he is the station's promotions producer.
RSU Public Television is licensed to Rogers State University and is the only public TV station operated by a university in Oklahoma. The station, based on the RSU campus in Claremore, reaches more than 1.3 million people within a 75-mile radius of the campus.
RSU Public Television broadcasts on digital channel 35.1 and 35.2, Tulsa and Claremore COX cable channel 19, Cable Channel 4 in Bartlesville and satellite channel 35 across northeastern Oklahoma.
