WPSU Editing Our Town: Nanty Glo…Set To Premiere On WPSU Thursday, May 24

Posted by Whitney on 04/02 at 01:30 PM

Now that we’ve interviewed 30 members of the Blacklick Valley area community with some great stories about local history, events, and places, it’s time to put it all together! We will spend the next several weeks in the edit room with the video footage and photos provided by our corps of volunteer storytellers. Their video and photos along with everything they told us on Saturday, March 24 during the interviews will combine to tell the “Our Town: Nanty Glo” story. And you can see how it all turned out when we premiere the program on WPSU-TV Thursday, May 24 at 8 p.m. Out-of-town friends can watch the live premiere online at

These thirty stories have only scratched the surface of the rich history and culture of the Blacklick Valley. We hope the audience enjoys this 65th episode in the “Our Town” series. With any luck, we will get to return to tell more stories from this great community.

Was wondering where I could get a copy of the show and possibly contribute to the stories. I grew up in Nanty-Glo from 1962 to 1980 where I graduated from Blacklick Valley. Went to school in Pittsburgh but with the failing economy in the area was forced to leave in search of a well paying job. I was hired by the Dept of Defense at Fort George G. Meade Md where I have worked for the last 30 years, returning monthly to see family and friends. Watched the steel mills and coal mines shut down in the 80’s and the population in town decrease from over 5300 residents to its current 3300 (roughly). Anyway, if you would like to contact me, I can be reached on 717 873-2011 cell. Thanks.
