It may seem early to talk about the holidays but here at WKAR, we get a head start on everything! So, this week I'm headed on location to record some video billboards promoting WKAR's involvement in the annual Silver Bells in the City Electric Light Parade. I'll be announcing along with Mark Buzzita and Michael Patrick Shields and we'll be airing the parade live on November 16 from 6-8 p.m.
WKAR-TV will broadcast Lansing’s Silver Bells in the City Electric Light Parade live at 6 p.m. on Friday, November 16. WKAR’s Susi Elkins will emcee the televised coverage, along with Michael Patrick Shiels of Fox 47 and Mark Buzzitta of WLNZ.
The event kicks off WKAR’s “Home for the Holidays” – a six-week period of seasonal specials for adults and children alike. Between November 16 and New Year’s Day, WKAR will offer 25 seasonal broadcasts, plus specials from regular WKAR series.
Sandra S. Clark, director of the Michigan Historical Center, will be the featured speaker at the "Evening at WKAR" preview of Ken Burns' "The Dust Bowl." The event will take place Thursday, November 15, at WKAR.
Clark has been the director of the historical center since 1991. Her history degrees are from Michigan State University.
"As someone who grew up in Kansas, it’s [the Dust Bowl] a topic I’ve long been interested in," she said.
Guests will see a 40-minute preview of the film, followed by Clark's talk. The event is free.
November 7, 1967 -- A date for public radio and television stations everywhere to celebrate! It was on this date that Lyndon B. Johnson signed the Public Broadcasting Act into law, allowing for broadcast excellence, education for viewers and listeners via content and independence and freedom of spirit for producers.
These are words worth reading and remembering! Thanks, LBJ!
