MPTV Announces Commentators for Great Circus Parade

Milwaukee, WI - MPTV's live HD broadcast of the July 12th Great Circus Parade will beam across the country via satellite and air on dozens of stations from Tampa to New York City to Denver and California. MPTV's I REMEMBER host Jim Peck and circus historian Fred Pfening will announce the play-by-play and provide color commentary. Local comedian and storyteller John McGivern and radio personality Sandy Maxx will report on all the scoops and stories behind the glitz and glamour.

This year's much anticipated return of the parade promises to be the largest and most extravagant historical re-creation in America. Kick off from Milwaukee's Lakefront is at 1:30 pm on Sunday, July 12th.

Broadcast begins at 1:30 pm on MPTV Channel 10.1 HD. The parade will be produced by Lois Maurer and directed by Raúl Galván.

MPTV coverage of the parade has been made possible, in part, by a grant from the Great Circus Parade, Inc., the foundation for the Circus Parade.

Since its inception, MPTV has educated, entertained and inspired. Today, MPTV offers viewers a family of nine digital channels to choose from, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. MPTV is a viewer-supported service of Milwaukee Area Technical College. For more information, call 414-271-1036.
