(Riverton, Wyo.) – WyomingPBS General Manager Terry Dugas told the Central Wyoming College’s board of trustees Tuesday night that the CWC-based statewide television network’s latest production has been accepted for national distribution.
“Glaciers of the Winds,” a one-hour documentary, was premiered last month in Lander and during the station’s fall fund raising drive. According to WyomingPBS, “The Wind Rivers slash across 120 miles, have more than 40 named peaks over 13,000 feet, and contain seven of the largest glaciers in the American Rockies. Glaciers of the Winds documents the scientific exploration and retreat of these glaciers.”
Dugas said he works with a national distribution firm to promote the program to PBS stations across the country. He said each station can decide if they want to air the program, so WyomingPBS will engage in a marketing plan to encourage stations to telecast the documentary. “I think we’ll use Dentyne Ice gum in our promotion,” he said. “Food always works in our promotions.”
