America's #2 Public Television Station to Air The Aviators
KCET in Los Angeles, CA, serving much of southern California, is making plans to air The Aviators beginning in January 2011 - likely in mid-week, prime time!
Over the past several weeks we have received many emails from southern California aviation buffs wondering about air times for The Aviators. Well, with KCET coming on board and nearby San Bernadino already airing the show, SoCal should be Aviators-rich in short order.
Add to that KQED in the San Francisco area and the additional stations they program for and I think we might finally have the aviation hotbed state of California covered not too badly!
And the East?
Well, New York STATE is an Aviators-friendly zone with Syracuse, Rochester, and Buffalo (among others) as early broadcasters. But we have mixed signals in the NYC area. Several months ago we were told broadcast plans were being made, but we've since heard from many NYC-area fans that they could find no further information.
Our standing request to all of YOU, our great Aviators Army, is that you email your local PBS station (or stations - plural) to tell them YOU WANT THE AVIATORS. It is exactly this kind of grassroots movement that has proven extremely effective in many other markets across the country.
Believe it or not, some program executives may not necessarily be fans of aviation... I know... say it ain't so! In these cases, they could use some help in recognizing that THERE IS AN AUDIENCE for a show like The Aviators. As months pass and chatter within PBS continues to build they'll eventually catch on, but if you're one of those having to wait for that to happen it just doesn't seem fair does it?
Let your station know that there IS an audience. If you're in Boeing country, Seattle, WA, that goes double for you! Seattle fans just can't understand how they're missing The Aviators! Trust me, STATIONS LISTEN and EMAILS WORK! To contact your local PBS station, click here for the PBS Station Finder.
