On 1/14/14 the YWCA of Olympia welcomed Ashley Hill from C-SPAN’s “2013 Cities Tour” to the agency. This program takes Book TV and American History TV on the road!
Working with its cable partners like Comcast, the C-SPAN producing team takes specially outfitted Local Content Vehicles (LCVs) into cities across the U.S. visiting various literary and historic sites to interview local historians, authors and civic leaders. They also engage in community outreach with local organizations making change in their communities.
During her time at the YWCA, Ashley visited one of Moncia Gockel’s Girls For A Change groups and shared her experience as a television producer, demonstrated the numerous resources available via C-SPAN, and encouraged girls to find their “spark” to make real change. She also met with Girls Without Limits! Coordinator, Makenzie Devries to talk about online resources.
Programming recorded in Olympia will air on Book TV/C-SPAN2 (Comcast channel 25) and American History TV/C-SPAN3 (Comcast channel 150) on February 1 and 2, 2014. C-SPAN is available in Olympia on Comcast channel 24 and HD channel 645.
