Discover Richmond: August 2017
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.
Heading to the water, we share a river of knowledge about our natural gem – the James. You might be surprised by its monsters and ghosts … and its bridges and bones ... and even VCU’s river campus. And do you know how the James even survived in recent years? We share the amazing modern-day story of our river.
In other features, we’ve got church bells and aluminum submarines. We’ve got Civil War weather and black history in Henrico. And there’s food, wine and lots more.
