Grand tour

Gazette staff April 4th, 2012

Alright, OKC, it’s time to wash behind the ears and sweep the dust bunnies under the rug: C-SPAN is coming to town.

The network for highminded insomniacs will profile our fair city as part of C-SPAN’s inaugural Local Content Vehicles (LCV) Cities Tour.

Correspondents will arrive Monday and stay through Friday, April 13. The segments will air May 5-6.

Debbie Lamb, coordinating producer for the LCV Tour, said C-SPAN will focus on the city’s history, culture and nonfiction literary life.

“We are still in the process of setting up all of the programming and school visits that we will be videotaping,” she said.

If it sounds like a nice opportunity to showcase OKC, consider that the other cities on the tour include Beaumont, Texas; Shreveport, La.; Little Rock, Ark.; Wichita, Kan.; and Jefferson City, Mo. Compared to those places, we’ll look like Paris!
