Rivermiles TV is hitting a PBS station near you!


If you had a boat and a river, where would you go?

At Rivermiles, they get to answer that question every week. Our friends Jodi Pfefferkorn and Scott Mansker have put together their first season of a PBS series called "Rivermiles". Each week they hop in a boat to explore another facet of the Missouri River or one of its tributaries.

The series is kicking off this weekend in mid-Missouri and Kansas City, with a schedule to be announced later this summer in St. Louis.

The second episode is all about a Missouri River Relief clean-up!

The series is running Saturdays at 7:30 p.m. on KMOS in mid-Missouri and Sundays at 1 p.m. on KCPT in Kansas City.
