C-SPAN Chooses Chattanooga As One Of 20 Cities On Its 2013 Tour

Thursday, December 12, 2013

C-SPAN has chosen Chattanooga as one of 20 U.S. communities to be visited on the 2013 Cities Tour. 

The national network on Monday will kick off a week-long visit to record and feature the city’s history and literary life.

During their time in Chattanooga, C-SPAN representatives will also conduct community outreach, explaining why they are in the city and how Chattanoogans can utilize C-SPAN’s free resources. 

The stories gathered by the video crews will later be shown on non-fiction book channel Book TV (on C-SPAN2, Comcast channel 104) and history channel American History TV (on C-SPAN3, Comcast channel 105) during C-SPAN’s special Chattanooga weekend Jan. 18-19.

In partnership with Comcast, C-SPAN’s 2013 Cities Tour takes Book TV and American History TV on the road. C-SPAN2 and C-SPAN3 are featuring the literary life and history of each of these selected cities during special weekends on the public affairs network. 

Working with its cable partners, the C-SPAN producing team will take specially outfitted Local Content Vehicles (LCVs) into Chattanooga, visiting various literary and historic sites to interview local historians, authors and civic leaders over the week.

Programming recorded in Chattanooga will air on Book TV/C-SPAN2 (Comcast channel 104) and American History TV/C-SPAN3 (Comcast channel 105) on Jan. 18 and 19. C-SPAN is available in Chattanooga on Comcast channels 62/95)
