The majority of area radio stations set up shop at the Fair and broadcast "live" for the eleven days of the Fair. We're the envy of every event in the area! Blue Ribbon sponsors can receive links, contesting opportunities, etc.
All three local TV Network affiliates also set up temporary studios on the grounds and broadcast "live" several times a day, including full newscasts.
We receive an average of 600 news stories or clips including news exposure on the morning news shows.
