Small Town, Big News

Plymouth, Wisconsin. Population, 8,396.

For a small town, we’re making big news. Well, it’s not everyday that your city is featured on its own documentary episode!

Recently the Plymouth Chamber of Commerce hosted “John McGivern’s Around the Corner”, a publicly-funded TV series out of Milwaukee. The series is hosted by John McGivern himself and is on its third season. John is a former actor who now travels to local Wisconsin towns to highlight the city’s attractions, eateries and hotspots. John and his TV crew spend four to five days in the community that is chosen at random and each season of the show features 13 communities (and therefore 13 episodes). After the 14-person crew arrives in the chosen city, about 20 people living and working in that community are chosen and then interviewed for material to be used in the feature.

We know as well as anyone that there is plenty to highlight in our great city; our historic downtown and cheese manufacturing (and foam manufacturing!), just to name a few. We are proud to be featured on “John McGivern’s Around the Corner” and are extremely appreciative of the Plymouth Chamber of Commerce for making this episode possible!
The episode featuring Plymouth will air in January on Milwaukee Public Television. For more information, please visit
