This information comes as OETA welcomes its new executive director, Polly Anderson. “It’s an exciting time for myself and for OETA — and this is great news that couldn’t have come at a better time,” said Anderson. “The objects in our lives hold meaning and tell a story. Oklahoma’s story is rich and diverse. I can’t wait to see what items Oklahomans bring for evaluation and to hear the story behind them!”
How does a show about the past evolve for the future? With an innovative production tour and new-look episodes! The 2018 tour includes first-time stops exclusively at distinctive, historic locations across the country!
“This past fall while filming at a Gilded Age mansion in Newport, Rhode Island, I saw immediately that capturing hidden treasures and guest stories against backgrounds rich with history brought a new depth to our show,” said ROADSHOW executive producer Marsha Bemko. “Holding events at these locations allows our cameras to go outdoors, capturing vivid settings and a peek into places that are treasures in their own right. It was a natural next step to create our entire tour with stops at these types of stunning Locations.”
Admission to Antiques Roadshow is free, but tickets are required and must be obtained in advance. Fans can apply for a chance to receive one pair of free tickets per household.

At each appraisal event, approximately 3,000 ticketed guests will receive free valuations of their antiques and collectibles from experts from the country’s leading auction houses and independent dealers. Each guest is invited to bring two items for appraisal.
From each of the 2018 events, three episodes of ROADSHOW per city will be created for inclusion in the 15-time Emmy® Award nominated production’s 23rd broadcast season, to air in 2019.
Antiques Roadshow, produced by WGBH Boston, is seen by an average of 8 million viewers each week, airing Mondays at 7 pm on OETA.
