Ticket Holders To Bring Treasures To 'Antiques Roadshow' Filming At Hotel Del Coronado

GUEST:

Marsha Bemko, executive producer, Antiques Roadshow

Transcript

The public-television phenomenon "Antiques Roadshow" visits San Diego on Tuesday.

The sold-out ticket-only event will take place at the historic Hotel Del Coronado. Marsha Bemko, executive producer of "Antiques Roadshow," said 3,500 people have tickets to Tuesday's event. She said 13,686 applied.

Each ticket holder brings two items to be appraised.

The Roadshow, in its 22nd year, is going strong as the most-watched ongoing series on PBS.

Bemko has been with the show since its fifth season. She decides which moments from the events make it in the show.

"I love a good story. My favorite objects don't often have big value, they have great stories. Stories, they make history come alive," Bemko said.

The episode filmed in Coronado is expected to air towards the beginning of the next season, which starts in January 2019.

Bemko joins Midday Edition on Monday with a preview of what ticket holders will experience at the roadshow.
