The Travel Show is a 30 minute radio magazine program that began in 2009 as a partnership between Townsquare Media and Oneida County Tourism to promote the tourism industry in Central New York.  Producer Eric Meier and Oneida County Tourism President Kelly Blazosky co-host the show each week and feature a weekly guest from a local event or attraction as well as a weekly calendar of upcoming events. Blazosky discussed the idea of a weekly radio show with Townsquare Media late last summer 2009.  Blazosky stated. "The show has been successful since first airing in September 2009. Tourism related businesses and event managers have been eager to be featured guests and listener response has been very positive."
