KLRN Announces Antiques Roadshow coming to San Antonio
San Antonio, Texas: ANTIQUES ROADSHOW, PBS’s highest-rated ongoing series, will visit the McNay Art Museum in San Antonio, Texas on Saturday, April 27 for an all-day appraisal event as part of its 2019 production tour!
“We’re excited to visit San Antonio and experience such an exceptional location,” said ROADSHOW Executive Producer Marsha Bemko. “Filming at McNay Art Museum will allow our cameras to blanket the property, capturing appraisals with the action of the event as a backdrop and, when possible, taking our audience backstage to places the public isn’t allowed or may miss seeing.”
“The McNay Art Museum is truly one of San Antonio’s treasures and all of us at KLRN are pleased that Antiques Roadshow will showcase its unmatched beauty,” said Arthur Emerson, President and CEO of KLRN.
From each 2019 event, three episodes of ROADSHOW will be created for inclusion in the 16-time Emmy® Award-nominated production’s 24th broadcast season, to air in 2020. ANTIQUES ROADSHOW airs locally Mondays at 7 p.m. and 8 p.m. on KLRN. Admission to ANTIQUES ROADSHOW is free, but tickets are required and must be obtained in advance. Fans can apply for a chance to receive one pair of free tickets per household.
