Knoxville — Knoxville will share the spotlight on a national television show with several other cities that hosted RAGBRAI this summer.
“Small Town Big Deal” spent part of RAGBRAI travelling with riders. While it didn’t do the entire week, the show has confirmed that Knoxville was one of the towns it visited. The episode will air Dec. 5.
Knoxville was one of three area cities to host overnight stays, along with Oskaloosa and Fairfield. Neither of the latter communities is featured in the program.
Two stations carry the program. Family Net airs it at 6 p.m. Thursdays and re-airs it at 6 a.m. Sunday. RFD-TV airs it at 8:30 p.m. Thursday and again at 10:30 a.m. Friday.
The program has already begun talking about RAGBRAI on its Facebook page, teasing an interview with the Air Force team that participated and changing the cover photo to a shot of riders on the route.
