“Manteca: A hidden gem to live, work and play.”

Those are the words spoken by football Hall of Famer Terry Bradshaw in a new promotional video produced by the nationally syndicated Today in America program.

The city was approached in October 2011 as a possible candidate for this video production. After interviews with city staff and the mayor, together with the producers of Today in America, Manteca was selected. A production crew visited Manteca for an entire day in August 2012, and filmed various segments of the community, including live interviews. The result is a 5-minute promotional video about Manteca being broadcast across the nation, and also available to the City for its use. The video can be viewed on YouTube at, which is also linked to the City’s website.

Mayor Willie Weatherford said the video will be instrumental to the City’s economic development efforts.

“The video really puts Manteca on the map as a centrally located destination point, and one that has a real balance of growth and services to the community,” Weatherford said.

Included in the $20,000 to produce the video is a series of production releases throughout the United States. To date, the video has been broadcast on nationally syndicated networks in California, Arizona, Colorado, Nevada, Utah and Washington.
