In the fall of 2015, 17-year old Nextonvillian Carolyn Lenning funded the expedition to retrieve some of the lost recordings from CBS owned-and-operated television station WTX-TV, channel 6, in Texaville, Ohio. This was the first time she had gone on an expedition without her parents. These lost recordings can now be viewed online, either through the station's official website, its YouTube page, or via the Internet Archive. This lead her to becoming one of the most profitable women in Nextonville, Tennessee, thanks to the Lenning Corporation.


In May of 2013, the Lenning family had previously funded an expedition to retrieve lost station recordings, as Carolyn was only 15. She funded the expedition to hunt down some of the lost recordings from WBSY-TV, channel 9, a Nextonvillian CBS affiliate, and WNXT-TV, channel 6, an NBC affiliate.

By the time Carolyn turned 17, she was old enough to fund the expedition herself. It was fall of 2015, and she chose to fund the expedition to retrieve some of the lost recordings from a station that was somewhere else, other than Nextonville.
