Holiday TV Guide to be featured Saturday

To help families plan time together

FAIRMONT — If you want to watch “A Christmas Story,” look no further than the 24-hour marathon TBS hosts each year.

But what if you just can’t wait to watch Ralphie in his quest for an “Official Red Ryder Carbine-Action Two-Hundred-Shot Range Model Air Rifle?”

Look no further than the Times West Virginian’s Holiday TV Guide, which will be included in Saturday’s edition of the newspaper. The television programming guide, which encompasses Dec. 1 through Jan. 1, includes a listing of every holiday-themed show and Christmas favorite on all major stations and networks. There are also lists of the top children’s shows and classics, puzzles and games and break-out stories about new specials and old favorites.

“Having two children of my own, I know how difficult it can be to find the Christmas shows they want to watch each year,” said Chuck Jessup, publisher of the Times West Virginian. “With a similar product, they’ve even gone so far as to highlight the shows they want to watch with a marker.

“With today’s technology of DVRs, they don’t miss a single show that’s on their list,” Jessup said.

While the guide is not local affiliate specific, the network, time and date of each show is listed in the guide. So, say you want to see the heartwarming Frank Capra classic “It’s a Wonderful Life.” The programming guide will remind you that NBC will air the show at 8 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 1, as well as 8 p.m. Monday, Dec. 24.

With busy schedules, families can set aside time to snuggle up with hot cocoa, cookies and “How the Grinch Stole Christmas.”

“This is a great guide to help families plan their time together,” Times West Virginian advertising director Craig Richards said. “From traditional favorites to the newest specials, this guide has it all.”

Don’t miss it in Saturday’s edition!
