This may be old to some, new to others, but new productions of The Savvy Traveler radio show have ended.
This is unhappy news for all of us, but we want to assure you that Minnesota Public Radio went the extra mile to find a way to support the program.
Despite the sincere and constant effort of our committed production staff, after nearly seven years of trying, The Savvy Traveler failed to attract sufficient underwriting support to continue. This was due to the economy in general, and the travel economy in particular -- especially in the post 9/11 period.
We'd like to thank our talented staff including Host Diana Nyad, Contributor and former host Rudy Maxa, Producer Ben Adair, Associate Producer Jim Gates, Assistant Producer Kelly Markham and Technical Director Ravi Carman for their unflagging efforts to produce a new memorable program week after week.
The spirit and, hopefully some of the best ideas and segments will survive this change, here on The Savvy Traveler web site.
From time to time programs of this beloved series will be rebroadcast on the radio. This site will be available for the indefinite future, replete with audio, text, online resources and a searchable database of program information to enrich and hopefully inspire the savvy traveler in you. If you have any comments about the program, drop us a line. We'd love to hear from you.
Thanks for listening, and for stopping by to visit.
