Enjoy This
Fabulous Fall Weekend!

  "See the good..."  That's the mantra of BYU-TV when it comes to the reality series The Story Trek, hosted by Emmy winning reporter, Todd Hansen. 
In his travels around the state, Todd randomly selected and stopped by the residence of Blythewoodian, Jackie Graham, to learn of his life's story.  That's the whole concept behind the wildly popular show which will be seen by 60 million people across the country on Monday, October 28.   Tune in Monday night at 8:00pm on BYUtv on Dish Network channel 9403, DirecTV channel 374 and more than 600 various cable systems.  You can also stream the show on www.byutv.org.
Break a leg, Jackie!!
