The Kaskaskia Regional Port District will be featured on an upcoming episode of World’s Greatest TV Show on November 2 and November 9. Ranking as the tenth largest inland port in the country with annual tonnage exceeding 1.5 million tons on the Kaskaskia River, the port district was an easy choice for producers to recognize as one of the “World’s Greatest.” The Kaskaskia Regional Port District has been a fixture of Red Bud, Ill. for more than half a century and is home to a variety of specialized and dedicated tenants. Producers were looking for something that had a mix of different operations that translate into a good story, and they said they found exactly what they were looking for at the Kaskaskia Regional Port District. The episode is scheduled to air locally on both cable and satellite television.
