Ball State PBS (formerly WIPB-TV) is looking for stories about New Castle, Indiana.

Ball State PBS, the PBS station located on the Ball State University campus, will feature the Henry County town in its ongoing series celebrating small towns in its viewing area.

Called “Now Entering…,” this program is a video scrapbook of the people, places and history of towns as seen through the eyes of its residents. New Castle community members will collect video footage and photos to showcase their unique stories. These materials will be combined to create the “Now Entering…New Castle” program, which will be broadcast on Ball State PBS in Summer 2021.

Producers from Ball State PBS will be in New Castle at 6 p.m. Thursday, April 8, at New Castle-Henry County Public Library Auditorium, 376 S 15th St., for an informational meeting. Anyone who would like to learn more about the project, but is unable to attend the meeting in person can watch the livestream at
