Orlando, FL (PressExposure) March 04, 2014 -- The Television Syndication Company, Inc. (TVS) is syndicating The Travel Thru History television show to markets throughout Florida this summer for a broadcast window beginning June 1st and ending August 31st.
The Daytime Emmy nominated series tells the history of destinations around the Sunshine State including Miami, the Space Coast, Key West, St. Augustine, St. Petersburg/Clearwater, plus a special highlighting several other Floridian roadside attractions including Weeki Wachee Springs.
"Response to the series has garnered a lot of interest among stations with several Florida markets already cleared. We're sure the Floridian audience will be thrilled to see historical destinations and attractions right in there backyard," remarked Cassie Yde, President of TVS.
Two years ago, the show's creators utilized kickstarter.com, an on-line funding site, to get the show up and running through donations from friends and family. It's currently airing it's second season on the MeTV network nationally, and secured a Daytime Emmy nomination for its first season - an unprecedented achievement for a show from such humble beginnings.
"All of our expectations have been exceeded," says Joe Dorsey, one of the show's creators. "We set out with only help from our friends and family and a credit card. The overwhelming positive reaction to the show, and the critical acclaim it achieved has made it all worthwhile."
TVS plans to air the show on major networks throughout the state of Florida for the Summer. The increased exposure will help the show garner more attention from potential sponsors.
"Anytime I can help bring something unique to an audience, something with purpose that will leave a lasting impression or create impact, I'm excited to be a part of it. Travel Thru History is exactly this opportunity. It provides an equal balance of education and entertainment to the viewing audience while showcasing Florida travel destinations in a thoughtful way beyond palm trees and sand. Advertisers and sponsors have a unique opportunity to connect with their Florida customers throughout the state or in regional segments of specific destinations," explained Jenn Greacen, Executive Director of the Clear Agency, the show's marketing firm."
Co-creator of TTH John DeMaio explains, "I know Floridians will be excited to hear the history of their home towns. We went to so many interesting places around the state, and we're excited to get their stories out to wider audience."
Travel Thru History is produced by Red 5 Creative in association with The Television Syndication company, both headquartered in Orlando, FL.
