After keeping it a secret for so long, we are finally excited to announce that this Saturday night (March 7th) on the Travel Channel 9/8c – Billy Driver and Mark Morrow will be appearing on the season finale of Travel Channel’s number one rated show, “Ghost Adventures”. Come see what Billy and Mark have to say as they tell Zak Bagans first hand of their paranormal experience as seen on Strange Town’s episode – “Emma’s Little Secret”. #texashorrorhotel #ghostadventures #themagnoliahotel UPDATE: We received word from the producers of #GhostAdventures that they had to cut our interview due to time constraints with the Travel Channel. We will no longer be appearing on the broadcast version of #texashorrorhotel. It was still a great privilege to be yet another part of The Magnolia Hotel story, and to be able to work with Zak Bagans, Aaron Goodwin, Jay Wasley, and the rest of the Ghost Adventures production crew.
Leading up to our Halloween Night Marathon on KLRU-Q are a couple of news publication interviews focusing on Strange Town and the upcoming Television release Austin American Statesman In new series, Austin hosts check out haunted sites “Rather than checking out the same ol’ spooky movies for the umpteenth time this Halloween, head on over to one of KLRU’s digital subchannels to check out something new.” Austin Monthly Magazine Stranger Than Fiction “Local paranormal investigation show Strange Town is scheduled for an eerie marathon this Halloween”
Halloween is just around the corner and that means that Strange Town will be hitting the airwaves, and if you live in Central Texas will be coming to a TV near you!
