February 14, 2014
The City of Tallahassee, Mayor John Marks, Comcast and the John G. Riley House and Museum will welcome C-SPAN to Tallahassee as they kick off a visit to record and feature the city's history and literary life.
Next week, C-SPAN representatives will reveal the stories and segments that will be explored by the national network during their week-long stay. During their time in Tallahassee, C-SPAN representatives will also conduct community and educational outreach.
Local segments recorded throughout the week will air 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 Tallahassee weekend March 15-16.
In partnership with Comcast, C-SPAN's 2014 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 Tallahassee, Florida, starting Monday, February 17, visiting various literary and historic sites to interview local historians, authors and civic leaders over the week.
Programming recorded in Tallahassee will air on Book TV/C-SPAN2 (Comcast channel 104) and American History TV/C-SPAN3 (Comcast channel 105 ) on March 15 and 16, 2014. C-SPAN is available in Tallahassee on Comcast channel 18.
