Local Cicero Stories Needed For New Television Project

Ball State PBS is looking for stories about Cicero, Indiana.

Ball State PBS, the Muncie PBS station located on the Ball State University campus, will feature Cicero in its ongoing series celebrating small towns in its viewing area.

Called “Now Entering…,” this program is a video scrapbook of the people, places and history of towns as seen through the eyes of its residents. Cicero community members will collect video footage and photos to showcase their unique stories. These materials will be combined to create the “Now Entering…Cicero” program, which will be broadcast on Ball State PBS this summer.

Producers from Ball State PBS will be in Cicero at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 22 at Cicero Red Bridge Community Center, 697 W. Jackson St., Cicero, IN 46034, for an informational meeting. Residents are invited to attend the meeting to learn about this new PBS project.

Anyone who would like to learn more about the project, but is unable to attend the meeting in person, should contact Sam Clemmons, producer/director, at sclemmons@bsu.edu or fill out a participation form at www.ballstatepbs.org/nowentering. For more about “Now Entering…”, including the first eleven episodes featuring Portland, Pendleton, Knightstown, Upland, Alexandria, Tipton, Rushville, Hartford City, Fortville, Newcastle, and Eaton, visit ballstatepbs.org/nowentering.
