In 2007 a small group of business owners and citizens from our town of “Fairmont MN” formed the multimedia company, Our Story Productions. With a goal to share all aspects of the life lead in our small town, our first project was the television show “Destination Small Town” To draw attention to our television show and to increase our web presence the decision was made to develop talk shows produced by a fictional television station (KLUK TV) located in the fictional Sweet Swine County. While viewers were entertained by the zany antics of the talk shows, KLUK TV reporters and Sweet Swine County citizens would report in with stories about real businesses and points of interest they had visited in our community. First aired on cable television in Southern Minnesota and on our website we soon begin to expand our coverage throughout Minnesota and later the Midwest!Much to our surprise businesses from throughout the Midwest begin to contact us to see if we would do stories about their businesses! We shared with our community that together we could not only share all aspects of the life lead in our town, but become the best source of information about the life lead in the small towns of the Midwest!
Today with over 50 volunteers and a staff of six OSP continues to produce the TV show “Destination Small Town” aired in over 1,000,000 households on cable TV and on our websites, YouTube, Facebook and Pinterest pages. To date we have featured 2,500+ businesses in over 700 small towns, in eight states of the Midwest! DST is now working with the communities to include regional pages that enable visitors to learn about the points of interest that they will want to visit and County Pages spotlighting the founders, business people, volunteers, entrepreneurs and military personnel who served their community and country.
