KCRG-TV 9 is on the road again for our 25th summer making YOUR town OUR TOWN for a week.
Over the summer, we'll learn what makes 4 eastern Iowa towns great places to call home.
This summer our journey begins in Waverly, then on to Oelwein, Galena and we end in West Branch.
We'll revisit some old friends and make new acquaintances as we celebrate 25 years on the road.
Make sure to tune into KCRG TV-9's 6 a.m. and 6 p.m. newscasts during these weeks for stories from each city, and look for articles with those videos on KCRG.com
Special thanks to our sponsors who are listed below. You can click on their logos to learn more about each of them.
