WRBL News 3 will take its “Our Town” tour to Americus in late July. The live broadcasts, marking the station's yearlong 60th anniversary, will take place from downtown Americus.
“We are really looking forward to taking the newscasts to Americus,” WRBL General Manager David Hart says. “We really enjoyed visiting with Mayor Blount and several of the community leaders on Friday. It was my first trip to Americus and I was really impressed by the vibrancy of the downtown area, and the friendly nature of everyone I came in contact with. This Our Town will be a very special one – as we really highlight all there is to learn, see and do in not only Americus but in other communities across Sumter County, including Plains and Andersonville.”
WRBL's shows will be seen live on television and the Web at 5 and 6p et. Viewers are encouraged to join the conversation via Twitter hashtag #OurTownAmericus.
