6News to broadcast next week from Tonganoxie High School

September 2, 2009

Sunflower Broadband Channel 6News will bring a live telecast to Tonganoxie at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 9. The 30-minute show will take place from Tonganoxie High School. The public is invited to arrive at 5:30 p.m. It's a chance to meet many of the on air news, sports and weather personalities from Channel 6 and see how a live newscast looks behind the scenes.

Much of that day’s newscast will be devoted to issues and news items from Tonganoxie.

“We think this is a great way to say thanks to our viewers in Tonganoxie for making 6News a part of their lives,” 6News director Cody Howard said. “We hope the turnout is great.”

In addition to the Tonganoxie appearance, 6News will telecast live from Basehor City Park at 6 p.m. on Sept. 16, live from South Park in Lawrence on Sept. 23 and live from Pilla Park in Eudora on Sept. 30. There will be free bratwurst, soda and water for the first 150 people at each location.
