Alpena Jack Link's plant to be featured on TV Monday

ALPENA -- Employees at a beef jerky plant in Alpena recently found out making history could be as easy as going to work.

The Jack Link's Beef Jerky plant will appear in an upcoming episode of the History Channel's long-running cable television series "Modern Marvels."

The hour-long episode will delve into the history and operation of present-day convenience stores. It will also take viewers behind the scenes to see how some of the most popular convenience store snacks -- such as beef jerky -- are made.

The show is scheduled to air at 9 p.m. Monday on the History Channel.

"Modern Marvels" has been on the air since 1995 and has explored more than 500 topics in fields such as technology, manufacturing, architecture and agriculture.
