Only in El Paso, the digital video series by KCOS, El Paso’s PBS station, is back for it’s fifth season.
“Using our platform as a television station and content curator to showcase talent in filmmaking and to improve the image of our beautiful city is an absolute honor,” said Emily Loya, KCOS General Manager. “At KCOS, we are proud to work with our partners on this very special project, which I know, will make a difference. The world should witness the excitement and beauty that lives in El Paso and this video series does exactly that.”
This joint venture of KCOS and PBS Digital Studios, much like the first fourth seasons, will capture unique people, places and more that you can find Only in El Paso and the broader border region.
From historical architecture to the story of El Paso’s Star on the Mountain, you’ll discover more to our Sun City through each of these fun and informative mini-documentaries.
