Lake Express Ferry makes television appearance
Milwaukee’s Lake Express Ferry will appear on an episode of the History Channel’s American Pickers on Monday, Oct. 11 at 8 p.m. central time. Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz, hosts of the weekly show, search for hidden antique gems around the country and take a ride on the Lake Express as they travel from their Iowa headquarters to western Michigan.
“We’re excited to have Lake Express appear on a nationally televised show like American Pickers,” said Ken Szallai, president of Lake Express. “It’s a wonderful opportunity to showcase the modern, fast and environmentally friendly travel opportunity that the Lake Express Ferry provides on a daily basis.”
According to Szallai, Wolfe and Fritz along with a film crew traveled on the Lake Express Ferry in mid-June as part of taping for the episode to air on Monday. In August, a film crew returned to Lake Express to get additional footage of the Ferry to incorporate into the episode.
