andmark will broadcast live Thursday night Fun, games, prizes set for Landmark Live 9/5/17
The staff of your local newspaper will be stepping into the world of live electronic media every Thursday night.
The Landmark Newspaper and its cast of characters will go live on Facebook every Thursday night this fall. The show, appropriately dubbed Landmark Live, debuts this Thursday night at 6 p.m. on the Facebook page of Ivan Foley.
Each week the show will have special guests and focus on a variety of topics in a loose atmosphere.
Special guest on the opening broadcast hosted by Foley will be Chris Kamler, a well known Twitter personality and Rambling Moron columnist in The Landmark.
In the Thursday, Sept. 7 episode to be broadcast from a second story loft inside the historic Landmark building, viewers will get the chance to win prizes during an interactive portion of the show.
Prizes up for grabs will include tickets to the Kansas City Renaissance Festival, a one-year subscription to The Landmark, and various books with a local theme.
Foley and Kamler will discuss Kamler’s rise as a Kansas City personality. The two will also engage in a game of “Fact or Crap?”
Kamler burst onto the Kansas City public scene several years ago, using his wit and wisdom to build a following of thousands on the social media platform of Twitter. His Twitter personality, known as TheFakeNed, now has more than 18,000 followers.
Kamler’s Twitter success made him the topic of features by many Kansas City media outlets, both in print and on television. He has hosted a radio show and written a book.
Most often the show will be broadcast from inside The Landmark building, including a special Halloween night episode to be filmed in the rarely-entered basement/crawl space of the 148-year-old structure. In other weeks the show will take its live video cameras to the streets and to locations throughout the area.
Landmark Live will run about 30 minutes each week.
Thursday’s edition of Landmark Live is sponsored by Aric Jennings Real Estate.
