LaPorte Opens Arms to HGTV

The city of La Porte wants a popular TV network to come and do a makeover. HGTV will pick one community.


Hosts of the long-running show, "Home Town" will go to the selected community and renovate

several historic homes, and maybe a few other buildings.


Wednesday afternoon, about 75 people gathered outside City Hall. They were filmed saying “Welcome to LaPorte” and “Thank You HGTV” for a video being produced to try and win over the cable network.


Mayor Tom Dermody says he was impressed by the turnout. The video must be in by February 8.

Officials believe La Porte has a good chance to be chosen because of the historic architecture and rich history here.
