Jacksonville to be Focus of TV Promos
Don't change the channel, those commercials, live weather updates and
festival promotions in Jacksonville on your television screen are no illusion. Starting in September, Birmingham television station
ABC 33/40's “Hometown Focus” program will begin airing Jacksonville-themed spots.
In July, City Council members agreed to pay for the program, sharing the $10,000 cost with Jacksonville State University and the
Jacksonville City Board of Education.
“Hometown Focus” will feature 68 commercials about Jacksonville over a one-month period, along with links to the city's Web site and
promotions for city events. A few scenes already have been filmed on the Public Square, at City Hall and at Jacksonville High School.
