Quoting the script of the program, “It towers above the ocean, solitary and strong. It is a beacon for weary travelers and a graceful guard illuminating the path for seafarers.

Standing watch over the nation’s oldest city is the St. Augustine Lighthouse. This majestic tower is not only a symbolic representation of the rich and unique history of St. Augustine, it serves as a guiding light for the people of the community. WJCT presents a unique look at this national treasure.”

The WJCT Production was scripted and hosted by Karen Feagins, produced by Christina Grimsley and executive produced by John Osif.
