Television viewers will take a journey down the highways and look at the many attractions that our state has to offer when KTWU’s I’VE GOT ISSUES (IGI) goes “Vacationing in Kansas”, on Wednesday, June 29, at 7 p.m. on KTWU-HD, Digital Channel 11.1.

Kansas offers so many attractions and events. Historic and scenic places abound along with stops at museums, art galleries, music festivals, and seasonal events. Whether vacationers are looking for outdoor activities or more specialized activities like wine tasting, quilting and antiques, IGI will try to cover the many options available. 

Hosted by Maureen Mahoney, IGI also looks at the impact tourism has on local towns and resident, and how tourism locations develop across the state.
IGI includes an examination of the statistics on our state tourism industry and how much money and jobs tourism brings in each year. And how much money is leaving the state when residents travel elsewhere.

Special guest from Kansas Travel and Tourism along with Marci Penner from the Kansas Sampler Foundation will bring their insight and ideas to share with viewers.

Other guests include representatives of outdoor travel from the Kansas Department of Wildlife and Parks and members of the Kansas Bed and Breakfast association. Blue Cross and Blue Shield will highlight their support of the new TravelKS.com promotion this summer.
