The street with the world’s largest LED screen is hoping to bring its attractions to people’s computer screens.
The Fremont Street Experience soon will begin airing a live interactive online talk show from casinos, restaurants and attractions located in the five-block entertainment district. Organizers say the broadcast will be the first of its kind from a Las Vegas tourist attraction.
More than 17 million people a year visit the Fremont Street Experience, an audience officials hope to grow with the broadcast. The project is being done in collaboration with Vegas Video Network, which produces shows that focus on behind-the-scenes looks at Las Vegas.
“A critical element to our success at Fremont Street Experience is developing an environment that is exciting, authentic and approachable,” said Jeff Victor, president of the Fremont Street Experience and host of the show. “Our efforts with the Vegas Video Network will allow us to expand this philosophy and reach by staying closely connected to a world-wide audience of Fremont Street Experience enthusiasts.”
Crews will begin shooting episodes in mid-October. Rehearsals and location scouting already have begun.
The program will be broadcast live on the Vegas Video Network and Fremont Street Experience websites, as well as on demand on iTunes, YouTube, Facebook and Twitter.
Fremont Street Experience Legendary casinos, free entertainment, old-fashioned gambling hospitality – this is the vintage Vegas of the Fremont Street Experience. Some say it's almost intimate. You may even run into one of the casino owners while you sit at the blackjack table. Some say it's the free entertainment that makes us vintage. On any given night you may see famous bands, strolling showgirls, or an amazing saxophone performance. Some say it's the history. Las Vegas started 100 years ago in 1905 near the corner of Fremont and Main Streets. Fremont Street was the first paved street. The Fremont Hotel opened 50 years ago and launched the careers of famous entertainers like Wayne Newton. Others say it's the service. A dining experience at Hugo's Cellar inside the Four Queens is unrivaled and renowned. And we can't forget the gambling. Test your fortune at The Lady Luck or Fitzgeralds casinos on some of the loosest slots in town.
