Press Release —ANTIQUES ROADSHOW, PBS’s mostwatched ongoing series, announces the cancellation of its final 2017 summer tour stop planned for Saturday, August 19 in Gillette, Wyoming.
Logistical issues around bringing the production to the local area this summer led to the decision.
ANTIQUES ROADSHOW expresses sincere thanks and gratitude to the teams at Wyoming PBS, CAM-PLEX and the State of Wyoming for their support and enthusiasm of our efforts to bring ANTIQUES ROADSHOW to Gillette.
Planning is underway to reschedule a stop in Wyoming as part of a future tour, details of which are not available at this time. During each ROADSHOW Summer tour, specialists from the country's leading auction houses and independent dealers offer free appraisals of antiques and collectibles. ANTIQUES ROADSHOW cameras capture tales of family heirlooms, flea market finds and items saved from attics and basements, while experts reveal the fascinating truths
about these items.
ANTIQUES ROADSHOW, produced by WGBH Boston, is seen by an average of 8.5 million viewers each week. The 14-time Emmy® Award nominated series airs locally Mondays at 7PM on Wyoming PBS.
