OVER 25 YEARS OF COVERAGE
PCN Celebrates Over 25 Years of PA Farm Show Coverage
By: Larry Kaspar, Senior Producer & Host
PCN television undergoes a startling transformation this time of year. Long before viewers notice the change, debates take place at staff meetings about the camera angles for covering sheep shearing and cow milking. Suddenly, the names of Harrisburg politicians take a back seat as we figure out coverage logistics of a rabbit hopping contest. As we get our heads wrapped around this radical week-long shift in priorities, we take a moment to ponder the significance of PCN bringing its viewers the Pennsylvania Farm Show for the twenty-fifth time.
When PCN covered its first Farm Show in 1994, you could say we were in an exploratory phase. We sent one camera operator to cover an event called a “horse pull.” Whatever that was. The camera was set up precariously on two uneven steps high in the Farm Show Arena in Harrisburg. The public address announcer was a kind lady who permitted PCN to clip a microphone to her shirt collar. During a moment of uncertainty, she looked over her shoulder and asked, “Who are you again?” Only the slightest bit satisfied with the answer, she went to work and called the event for both the audience in attendance that night and PCN viewers. When we checked our voicemail the next day for viewer reaction, we knew we were on to something.
It was that announcer’s leap of faith that opened the door to Farm Show coverage that has grown in both size and sophistication over the last twenty-six years. Several events we cover feature our own analysts explaining in detail what’s going on and what it means. We believe this educational component of our coverage heightens your appreciation of the Farm Show, and makes your viewing experience more enjoyable.
In 2019, PCN televised more than 150 events and 40 hours of live programming from the Farm Show to celebrate our 25th anniversary. In 2020, once again, viewers will be able to watch all the action on statewide cable. Farm Show fans that don’t have cable, or live out of state, can stream all the events on demand using their favorite device with a PCN subscription.
There’s so much going on at the Farm Show on PCN that there’s something for everyone. That sounds like a cliché, but it’s true. See for yourself when you visit our website at pcntv.com. Our schedule includes a horse pulling contest, square dancing, cooking lessons, a Sheep-to-Shawl Contest, a rodeo, exhibit judging, a rabbit hopping contest, and so much more.
Oh, about those rabbits. Here’s a bit of friendly advice to Harrisburg politicians: never visit the Farm Show with the notion that you can compete with bunny rabbits for attention and win. Trust me on this.
