Mediacom to Bring C-Span's 'Campaign 2008' Bus to Valdosta

Prior to heading north to Washington, DC for President-Elect Obama’s Inauguration, the C-SPAN Campaign 2008 bus will be visiting Valdosta on Thursday, December 11th.

After making a stop at Valdosta Technical College, it will spend time at Valdosta State University from 11:30 a.m. until 1:30 p.m.

The 45-foot mobile production studio has been on the campaign trail to promote and enhance C-SPAN’s comprehensive political coverage, traveling to major political events such as debates, national and state conventions as well as candidate speeches. During its travels the Bus also conducts civic educational programs for teachers and students. Since its January 2007 launch, the bus has been to 47 states and has been visited by over 116,000 people including 800 elected officials, 9,000 teachers, 60,000 students, and 5 presidential candidates.

“With historically high levels of interest in this year’s presidential election, we have had an exciting year on the road with the Campaign 2008 Bus,” said Scott Peterson, C-SPAN representative.

“Even though the election is over, the story has just begun. We hope to engage the Valdosta community to continue to follow the new Presidential administration and Congress through the resources of the non-profit C-SPAN networks," said Sally Bloom, senior manager for Government and Community Affairs for Mediacom”
