Personnel from Ball State PBS will be in New Castle, Ind., on April 24 to conduct on-camera interviews for its upcoming program, “Now Entering…New Castle.”

Ball State PBS (formerly WIPB-TV), located on the Ball State University campus, is featuring the Henry County community 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 have been encouraged to collect video footage and photos to showcase their unique stories. Those materials are being combined to create the “Now Entering…New Castle” program, which will be broadcast on Ball State PBS this summer.

Ball State PBS personnel will be in New Castle from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday, April 24, at the New Castle-Henry County Public Library, 376 S. 15th St., to interview storytellers on camera.

To be a part of the production, participants must schedule an appointment by filling out a participation form at

Also, because Ball State PBS wants to make sure everyone who would like to tell a story can still do so, video cameras can be checked out from the New Castle-Henry County Public Library.

To learn more, watch a replay of the “Now Entering…New Castle” Community Meeting on YouTube, or contact Paul Brown, Ball State PBS Producer/Director at (765) 285-1237 or
