The HBA of Greater Springfield Home Show is a regional annual event that is eagerly anticipated throughout a broad geographical area. And each year it draws considerable attention – not only from the thousands who attend, but also from the area’s news media. Print and broadcast media already have been previewing the regional attraction for weeks. And local television stations commonly cover the event for evening newscasts and even via live satellite uplinks for morning shows.
This year, for the first time, a local program is planning to stage and conduct its entire broadcast live from the Home Show. Ozarks Local Live at 4 plans to broadcast its daily 4pm local show from the Springfield Expo Center on Friday. Popular local co-anchors Tom Trtan and Shannon Fox are expected on-hand for the program. Stay tuned for updates on other local media coverage of the 2012 HBA Home Show!
