The Cities Tour brings C-SPAN programming to your community, interviewing local figures and visiting area sites using specially outfitted Local Content Vehicles.

C-SPAN’s Cities Tour takes our C-SPAN2 Book TV and C-SPAN3 American History TV on the road. On the first and third weekend of each month, we’ll feature the literary life and history of each of these selected cities.

Working with our cable partners, our producing team will take specially outfitted Local Content Vehicles (LCVs) into each city, visiting various literary and historic sites as we interview local historians, authors and civic leaders. We’ll also meet with students, teachers, elected officials, and organizations to talk about C-SPAN’s mission in covering public affairs programming, and what the local connections are to national politics.
