‘American Pickers’ heading to Newaygo and Branch Counties in August

**UPDATE**  The Village of  Union City in Branch County posted on their Facebook page this afternoon that American Pickers will visit that area as well.

FREMONT, Mich. -- Heads up Newaygo County: The American Pickers are coming your way later this summer.

Famous for finding hidden treasures in common junk piles, antique gurus Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz are planning to stop in Fremont in August.

"I was like, Fremont? Really?" said Karen Baird with the Fremont Chamber of Commerce. "I'm a big fan of the show, you know... so I thought it'd be fun to have them here."

Baird was shocked to get a call from producers of the show on Monday.

"We put it on our Facebook page and it went wild," Baird said.

Hopeful collectors shared the post over 5,000 times as of Wednesday afternoon.

“There’s a lot of people that do collecting in the area," said Baird. "In Newaygo County as a whole there’s a lot of interesting stories. I think we just have to make sure the news is out to the right people.”

If you want to enter to be on the show, they're looking for people with cool collections with stories behind them.  To submit, send your name, number, location and photos and descriptions of your items/collection to AmericanPickers@cineflix.com or call 855-OLD-RUST.

    This show along with pawn stars ruined the historical programming on The History Channel. Why do they even call it The History Channel anymore? One of many reasons I ditched the dish 3 years ago. Glad to say I won’t be watching.

      Please keep negative comments to yourself. They dont have any control over it. If you have a problem with it contact the history channel. Thanks
