TwoEgg.TV had fun today hosting Kimberly Hyde, one of our friends from WTVY-TV in Dothan, Alabama. She is preparing a feature to be aired on WTVY in May.

Kimberly is working on a series of stories that WTVY will air over several days beginning May 9th. Her stories will focus on the good things about life in small American towns and Two Egg is one of several communities that she is visiting. One of our other favorite communities – Screamer, Alabama – will also be featured!

TwoEgg.TV General Manager Rachael Conrad coordinated a visit for the multi-media journalist to the Long Cane Syrup operation on Highway 69 in Two Egg. Robert Long, Sr. spoke with her about the growing operation that is a much-loved part of the community.

This year’s Robert E. Long Cane Syrup Day  will take place on the morning of Saturday, December 2nd.

The story will also feature author and historian Dale Cox who was interviewed about the unique history of Two Egg and what he loves about being from the area.

Here are some photos from today’s visit!
