Following is an email that I received from Maria, a producer at KSMQ TV in Austin, MN. I had shared some photos from some of our kiting events with her. Some may appear in one of the shows that will air this week she mentions. The stories feature MKS's own Craig "Mr. Kite" Christiansen. From the email it sounds like there will also be some video and pictures from Color the Wind. So everyone set your Tivo's and for us old folk set your VHS's (or just look for it on YouTube too).
This is a quick note from KSMQ to thank you for supporting public television and for being involved in our productions.
We also want to let you know that the episode of Off 90 to which you contributed will begin airing Sunday, March 27th at 7 PM. Encore presentations will air the following Wednesday at 8:30 PM, Thursday at 7:30 PM, and Saturday at 5 PM. For more information on specific dates and times, or to explore our other local programming, start with a visit to http://www.ksmq.org.
The Monday after your episode airs, it will be available to watch online at http://www.ksmq.org/programs/off90/and on YouTube.
A promo for the episode can be seen here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rmckmuAcgQA
If you have any questions – or even better, if you have ideas to contribute to our local productions – please drop us a line or give us a call.
Again, thanks for taking part – and thanks for watching!
P.S. If you contributed photos of the Clear Lake, IA kite fly to the “Mr. Kite” piece, your photos won’t be seen in this episode (we ended up being able to shoot some video) – but they can be seen in a different version of the “Mr. Kite” piece which will air on all Minnesota PBS stations on Thursday, March 24th, beginning at 7pm. The “Mr. Kite” piece should air sometime around 9pm that day.
