Nanticoke to be the focus in Our Town series on VIA Public Media

Last Updated by WVIA Admin on

The city of Nanticoke in Luzerne County will be featured in VIA Public Media’s "Our Town" series. “Our Town Nanticoke” will be a "day-in-the-life" one-hour video scrapbook focusing on the people, places and happenings of Nanticoke, Pennsylvania, as seen through the eyes of its residents.

 

Nanticoke residents are invited to attend the first “Our Town Nanticoke” community/volunteer meeting, Thursday, January 31st at 6:30 p.m. at Nanticoke City Building, 15 E. Ridge Street, Nanticoke, PA.  Residents will discuss which landmarks, events and local stories the program should tell about their town. VIA will answer questions about the project during the meeting and ask volunteers to brainstorm a list of subjects and events to videotape.

 

On Thursday, February 7th at 6:30 p.m. VIA will hold a second community/volunteer meeting at

Nanticoke City Building, Nanticoke. During this meeting volunteers will participate in a whiteboard session to determine the stories to be told in the program and which stories each volunteer will videotape to create “Our Town Nanticoke.” VIA hopes to recruit 20 to 25 area residents with personal camcorders.

 

Anyone interested in being a videographer and/or storyteller for the program should contact VIA “Our Town” producer, Lisa Mazzarella, at 570-602-1164 or by e-mailing lisamazzarella@wvia.org.

 

“Our Town Nanticoke” will debut April 25, 2019 on VIA-TV.

As northeastern Pennsylvania’s and the Central Susquehanna Valley’s public television station serving a very large geographic area, the "Our Town" project was initiated in an effort to involve the communities and their residents with VIA. The "Our Town" series is intended to treat viewers to the many personalities, perspectives, and possibilities that local towns have to offer.
