The City of Enterprise is expected to be in the national spotlight Sunday when a news story on the City and the boll weevil will air on “CBS Sunday Morning.” 

The feature will explain how Enterprise farmers overcame the destructiveness of the boll weevil, forcing them to switch from cotton to peanuts, more than 100 years ago. “CBS Sunday News” reporter Conor Knighton focuses on how today Enterprise honors the boll weevil through a monument, statues and merchandise. 

“We are thrilled to be able to showcase the City of Enterprise on a national stage,” Tourism and Community Relations Director Tammy Doerer said. “From the Boll Weevil Monument in the heart of our City, to the 28 Weevils around town, we really embrace the pest that could not destroy the spirit of the people of Enterprise. You’ll see that as part of this ‘CBS Sunday Morning’ piece.” 

The CBS production crew spent about two and a half days in the City of Progress back in May exploring the City and interviewing several local business owners. Doerer said the feature will air Sunday, pending any breaking news. 

The Emmy Award-winning “CBS Sunday Morning” airs at 8 a.m. Sunday on WTVY, the local CBS affiliate.
