“You’ve never been to Beaver Island?” asks Channel 9 & 10’s reporter Kalin Franks.
“This is one place that should be on everyone’s up north bucket list this summer.”

Franks’ interviews on May 13 were filmed by TV 9 & 10’s photo journalist Stephanie Adkins. Adkins is a familiar face on the Island, having at times accompanied and assisted her husband Cory, an accomplished videographer who has filmed many segments of life on Beaver Island for TV.

Franks and Adkins spent a busy day on the Island, doing segments at Welke’s Airport, the Chamber of Commerce, the AMVETS Memorial Park, the Toy Museum, and both the Print Shop and Marine Museums. They will also spend a morning filming aboard the Emerald Isle, showing viewers not only ‘how’ to get to Beaver Island but many of fun and interesting things to see and do while visiting.

The feature on Beaver Island will be aired on Channel 9 and 10 and their Fox affiliate (channel 32) on Thursday, May 23. Each small segment will be about two minutes long and shown basically around quarter after the hour and quarter to the hour beginning at 5:00 a.m.  to 7:00 a.m. on Channel 9 & 10, followed by the 7:00 a.m. news on Channel 32.

Both Franks and Adkins are hoping to return to do even more filming on Island events later this year, possibly even doing a ‘live remote’ from the Island sometime this summer.
