City of Wetumpka Chosen for HGTV “Home Town Takeover” Show

The city of Wetmpka is getting some national exposure. Wetumpka has been selected for HGTV’s “Home Town Takeover”.

The city was chosen from a half-million submitted photos and  videos representing 2,600 towns across the country. After a months-long search, HGTV announced Wetumpka had been chosen this morning.

The hosts of “Home Town Takeover” will be Ben and Erin Napier, who host “Home Town”, a show about their efforts to repair and restore homes in their hometown of Laurel, Mississippi. With their new show, they are setting out to bring new energy to  an entire town.

“Home Town Takeover” will be a six-part series that will premiere next year. The couple will tackle not only homes in Wetumpka, but also businesses and other areas in need of sprucing up.

There will be a preview airing tonight at 7 p.m. CDT on HGTV.
