The next town in our series about great small towns in our viewing area is…Eaton!

Ball State PBS is looking for stories about Eaton, Indiana

Ball State PBS, the PBS station located on the Ball State University campus, will feature Eaton in its ongoing series celebrating small towns in its viewing area.

Called “Now Entering…,” this program is a video scrapbook of the people, places, and history of towns as seen through the eyes of its residents. Eaton community members will collect video footage and photos to showcase their unique stories. These materials will be combined to create the “Now Entering…Eaton” program, which will be broadcast on Ball State PBS in early 2022.

Producers from Ball State PBS will be in Eaton from 9am-6pm Saturday, November 13, at Eaton First Church of God, 700 E. Harris St., Eaton IN 47338, to interview storytellers on camera.

Because Ball State PBS wants to make sure everyone who would like to tell a story can do so, video cameras also may be checked out from the Eaton Public Library.

To be a part of the production, participants must schedule an appointment by filling out a participation form at
