More Information

When you live in a place like Tennessee, you can pass by historic institutions every day. In some cities you can stand still and let those historic institutions pass you by...or even hop on board and ride along, which is what Rob Wilds recently did in Nashville. When he booked passage on a one of a kind vessel even Mark Twain would have recognized.

Rob Wilds has been a part of the Tennessee Crossroads family since 1993. As one of our most frequent producers, and the recipient of several journalism awards throughout his various careers, Rob finds that the best reward for his work is meeting the fascinating people and visiting the interesting places he encounters in his travels. A presence in television, radio and print reporter for more than 20 years, Rob is a teacher, writer, producer and director as well as an actor (with appearances in feature films, television shows and on stage).
