WHO-HD is packing up and hittin’ the road all this week for RVTV 2019, the station’s annual week-long Iowa/Iowa State tailgate party. “We never know quite what to expect, which is part of the fun,” said Keith Murphy, WHO-HD’s sports director.
WHO, Tribune’s NBC affiliate in Des Moines, Iowa, is packing up and hittin’ the road all this week for RVTV 2019, the station’s annual week-long Iowa/Iowa State tailgate party.
This year’s route will make stops in Polk City, Ellsworth, Rockwell City and Humboldt on the way to Ames for the big game on Saturday, Sept. 14.
This is the 20th year for Channel 13’s RVTV, and as the tradition grows, so do the celebrations.
This year, the team is hearing about festivities planned at each of the tour stops including marching bands, fireworks, police escorts and a very special guest or two.
The RVTV coverage will air live all week long on at 4, 5, 6 and 10 p.m.
“We never know quite what to expect, which is part of the fun,” said Keith Murphy, WHO’s sports director. “But one thing we can always count on is great Iowa hospitality. RVTV could only work in Iowa where these communities know how to roll out the welcome mat. All fans pick a side in the Cy-Hawk rivalry, but they also remind us we’re all Iowans first. It’s a great experience.”
In addition to Hawkeye-Cyclone pregame coverage from Polk City to Ames, WHO’s RVTV coverage will include extra features and behind-the-scenes exclusives on the station’s RVTV web page at www.whotv.com, plus SoundOff Nation on Facebook, and @SoundOff13 on Twitter. Search for the hashtag #RVTV.
