Now Entering Rushville

WIPB-TV is looking for Hartford City stories! WIPB, the PBS station located on the Ball State University campus, will feature the Blackford County town in its ongoing series celebrating small towns in our 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.

Hartford City community members are encouraged to collect video footage and still photos to showcase their unique stories.

These stories will combine to create the “Now Entering…Hartford City” program, which will be broadcast on WIPB-TV January 2020.

Because WIPB wants to make sure everyone who would like to tell a story can do so, video cameras are being provided at the Hartford City Public Library.

WIPB-TV will be in Hartford City on Thursday, October 3 at City Hall, 700 N. Walnut St., at 6:00 p.m. for an informational meeting.

If you can’t attend the meeting but want to be a part of the project, contact Paul Brown, producer/director, at or fill out a participation form at
