  • 5:30 PM - 7:30 PM
  • Carnegie Room, City of Springfield Lincoln Library, 326 South Seventh Street

Television personality and Illinois Stories host Mark McDonald will be giving us the inside scoop on how the show is put together, his best work and his toughest assignments when he speaks to the Sangamon County Historical Society on Tuesday, November 6. 

McDonald will headline the 5:30 pm meeting at the City of Springfield's Lincoln Library for a session that is free of charge and open both to members and non-members.  The meeting will be held in Carnegie Room North.

An engaging speaker, McDonald will be taking us behind the camera as he shares what's involved in taking us through a Central Illinois we only thought we knew.  The Emmy-award-winning show is aired locally on public television station WSEC in Springfield, on WQEC in Quincy and WMEC in Macomb.

McDonald has worked in television and media relations for 30 years as a news reporter and anchor, public affairs specialist, and now, as a chronicler of life in Central and West Central Illinois.  He also has the distinction of having interviewed three Presidents at some time in their careers.
