From Insurance to Future Super-Stars: HBOMax follows a small news station outside of Las Vegas in a new documentary, featuring our friends John and Missey Kohler

Many of you all know John Kohler,Junior from his many years of insurance life at HUB Fairbanks/Rural Alaska, and for his awesome little commercials for the AIIAB Conventions in the past. He and his wife Missey followed their dreams to move from Fairbanks to outside of Las Vegas to pursue new interests. They never imagined they would be featured in an HBO documentary. Starting in August, their local news station is being featured on a new documentary series! Check out the trailer and news article.
