Attend the Red Flannel Festival next Saturday and you could be on TV.
“We’re excited to share the news that the PBS Television Show, “Under the Radar Michigan” will be here on Saturday, Oct. 1, to film the Red Flannel Festival as one of the six coolest Festivals in the State of Michigan!” said festival president Michele Andres.
According to a news release, “the true mission of the program is to discover and uncover the thousands of incredible ‘under the radar’ people, places and things we may not know about in Michigan. Through this discovery, we hope to develop a deeper dimension of pride in our state.”
According to a note from the show’s host, Tom Daldin, they are broadcast on every PBS TV station across Michigan, and also have millions of viewers across Canada, Ohio and Wisconsin, and will be moving into the Chicago market this season. “Our fans are loyal and very engaged in the program. When we talk about a place, people travel long distances in great numbers for the experience… so it’s good for everyone. We often have people tell us that we literally ‘doubled their business’… it’s a nice feeling to be able to do that!” he wrote.
In each episode, the UTR crew travels from city to city uncovering the people, places and things that make Michigan a great place to be.
