Goldsboro and Wayne County get ready for their close-up! The History Channel is scheduled to air the episode of “It’s How You Get There” featuring Goldsboro-Wayne County this Sunday, August 9, at 8:30 AM. The episode is part of Season 3 and will highlight Goldsboro-Wayne County in a full-length episode. Reruns of the episode will be aired on the History Channel and FYI Channel throughout the fall. Amazon Prime will showcase the full Season 3 in Spring 2021.
“The History Channel’s coming to Goldsboro-Wayne County is indicative of the great strides our community has made in the last several years to better tell our story and become a destination worth visiting. It’s a great opportunity to showcase to a national audience the positive assets of our area, like the ATV park, BBQ scene, historic downtown, and our transportation heritage that ranges from trains to planes,” said Ashlin Glatthar, director of travel & tourism for Goldsboro-Wayne County. “Not many hometowns can claim “As Seen on TV,” so this show is a source of pride for our community. Taking into account the impact that COVID-19 has had on our travel market, I believe this show can help drive visitation back into our market — as well as drum up new interest and awareness of Goldsboro-Wayne County among potential visitors on a national level.”
During the filming of the show, a behind-the-scenes promotional video was filmed, documenting the filming and production of the show. This video will be launched on Visit Goldsboro’s social media channels by Friday, August 7th.
