C-SPAN Bus To Visit Creighton

The award-winning C-SPAN School Bus, a 45-foot mobile television production studio and demonstration center, will stop in Deglman Circle at Creighton University on Friday, June 16, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Creighton’s Upward Bound students will be invited onboard the Bus to learn about the network’s programming goals and the importance of developing critical viewing techniques.

The C-SPAN staff will provide tours of the bright yellow bus for an up-close look at the “studio on wheels” and learn about the network’s varied public affairs programming.

On Thursday, June 15, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., the C-SPAN School Bus will visit the W. Dale Clark Branch of the Omaha Public Library at 215 S. 15th St.

The C-Span School Bus appearance in Omaha is sponsored by Cox Communications. In Omaha, C-SPAN can be seen on channel 7 and C-SPAN2 on channel 6.

Hitting the road for the first time in November 1993, the C-SPAN School Bus has visited all 50 states and logged over 275,000 miles in its travels. Visit for more on the Bus and for more about the network’s free educator website resource.
