Since February 18, 2009, The Rhode Show on WPRI 12 has been the place to have fun, eat well, and live life! Now Rhode Island’s first and only local lifestyle and entertainment show has achieved a major milestone by celebrating ten years on TV.
Beginning Monday, February 18th at 9 a.m., The Rhode Show on WPRI 12 kicks off a several weeks-long celebration. Join hosts Will Gilbert, Michaela Johnson, and Brendan Kirby as they look back at a decade of memorable moments, notable guests and former co-hosts. They’ll share special segments every day. Then, on Thursday, April 4th, the celebration culminates with a 30-minute Rhode Show anniversary special airing at 7 p.m. on WPRI 12.
“To be celebrating a decade of The Rhode Show is something we’re all very proud of,” says WPRI TV Vice President and General Manager Patrick Wholey. “From cast and crew to contributors and show sponsors, I’m thankful for all those who’ve made The Rhode Show the success it is today.”
Over the past decade, The Rhode Show has featured locally and nationally known guests, has brought viewers prime time specials, and has earned multiple New England Emmy nominations.
“This is a very special and unique show to work on,” says Rhode Show Executive Producer Ashley Erling. “Our mission has always been to make it entertaining and informative for our viewers. It’s been a great ten years and the Rhode Show team is excited to continue growing and evolving the show into a brand-new decade.”
