Discover Richmond: February 2017
When it comes to the depth and richness of its history, no state beats Virginia!
We'd all do well to spend a lifetime exploring it, and in this edition, we touch on a few elements, locally and beyond, that might pique your interest (including trippy counterculture clippings and orbiting astronauts). Notably, we introduce you to perhaps the most famous Virginia you might not know, and we serve up more than 20 sites worth exploring during your travels.
Discover Richmond August 2017: Funny Skies
It’s summer in Richmond – time for the great outdoors. So in this issue of the RTD’s Discover Richmond, we’re thinking about the weather … and the water. Our local TV weather pros take their work seriously, but what about beyond the green screen? RTD meteorologist John Boyer connects with all 13 of his TV counterparts to get their humor and insight from years in the business. Nikki-Dee Ray’s middle name? Andrew Freiden meeting a viewer naked? These answers and many more will brighten your day.

Discover Richmond June 2017: What's up Doc?

The good doctor, noting how women cared too much about protecting rugs and furniture, was promoting the benefits of sun exposure. His advice – to “husbands, fathers and just fellows” – was for them to get their ladies to open the drapes at home.
We’ve come a long way, thank goodness. In this edition, we feature a baker’s dozen of local medical specialists ( gasp – some are women!) who share insights into their fields. From promising technologies to some back-to-basics reminders for patients, they give us a window into good health – bones to brains, noses to knuckles.
