Welcome to The County Seat Blog. This is where I will be organizing the shows for this coming year. It is my hope that you will post topics that your county would like covered on the show and also where I can keep all of you up to date on shows that we are working on. Please let me know if you would like to be part of any of the shows that we post and I will work to make sure we get your input. I hope this becomes a useful tool for all of us in creating a successful second season in 2012.
