SHARING WEST VIRGINIA STORIES--- Traveling with Brad Rice

After showing a few examples of his favorite stories for WCHS, and a snippet or two from his documentary projects, Rice will take questions about his career traveling the back roads of West Virginia. Artists, authors, cool things in general are all fair game for his Traveling West Virginia segment. Inspired at an early age by the images in West Virginia magazine, and running the roads fishing and hiking with his grandfather and dad, Brad has been fortunate enough to work in the news business and produce weekly features that expose our unique Appalachian culture to a larger audience.

Bio:

Covering everything from natural disasters, political races, industrial accidents, and daily news assignments. His experience and performance lead him to two weekly franchise segments, West Virginia Wildlife and Traveling West Virginia. Rice has earned numerous Associated Press and West Virginia Broadcasters Association awards for his work, and was the recipient of an Emmy Award in 2007. His 2015 documentary “Swiss Family Balli” was broadcast statewide on West Virginia Public Television, and was selected by the West Virginia Film Makers Festival and The West Virginia International Film Festival.
