Felter presents John Ringling North II, great nephew of the famous Ringling brothers, with the "key to the city" when his circus comes to Jefferson. Jefferson was home to Alfred T. Ringling, one of the famous Ringling brothers, and his original 1916 mansion still stands to this day and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

And the world is watching.

HBO’s Emmy-nominated Vice News Tonight aired a documentary-style report this week about Ringling-North noting that the end of the giant circus isn’t the end of the road for the circus. The Vice crew met Ringling-North on the road in Ohio. Millions of viewers watched as Ringling-North called himself lucky to own the Kelly Miller Circus.

The report can be seen on the web at https://news.vice.com A Ringling Bros Relative is Keeping the American Circus Alive.

Aired on PBS, OETA, RFD-TV, local cable stations, and in Europe on the Global Broadcasting Network, Oklahoma Horizon met the circus on the road near its winter home in Hugo, Okla. Millions more watched as Ringling-North joked that when the Kelly Miller Circus went up for sale in 2006 he thought about it a full 20 minutes before deciding to buy it.

The story can be watched online at oklahomahorizon.com. The Kelly Miller Circus is 2017 show #1719 Under the Big Top.

The two TV shows remind viewers of centuries-old history of the circus and the historical impact made by the 79 year-old Kelly Miller Circus. The show Ringling-North produced for this year is a tribute to his family, the founding of the Ringling Bros. Circus in 1884 and the future of the circus.

Whether it is on HBO’s Vice presenting a “unique perspective to events shaping the future” or on Oklahoma Horizons that focuses worldwide on those who contribute to “economic success and quality of life” or ringside at his circus Ringling-North knows without a doubt that the show must go on, elephants and all.
