Where Stories Live - A New History Show on WCTE

This new series features unique and sometimes forgotten history of the Upper Cumberland conveyed through real life experiences and even local folklore.  

“Where Stories Live,” will take a unique, deep dive into the rich, historical homes and other structures from our region and the stories that live there. Each story will include a historic tour, a deeper look into the lives of the people, the historic relevance, and the significant events that may have occurred. The documented or undocumented stories will be told by the locals in their own words or as they were experienced. The monthly show will air each first Thursday night of the month at 7 p.m., with subsequent encore airings. The show will also stream on Facebook or on our website.

About the Show

"Where Stories Live" is hosted by WCTE President & CEO Avery Hutchins. 

“This new series has captured the rich history of our region through the eyes of the locals,” Hutchins said. “The stories you will see aren’t from the history books but from local experiences and the folklore that has been passed from one generation to the next.”

The series is in collaboration with the Tennessee Tech University History Department and Michael Birdwell, Ph.D., who passed earlier this year. WCTE PBS’s Josh Deepan is the producer for the new series.
