Rick Steves Comes to KSER

The most well-traveled man in Snohomish County has to be Rick Steves of Edmonds.

You think you have a busy schedule? Not only has Rick Steves done more globe-trotting than most of us can ever imagine, but he has written dozens of travel guidebooks and he has visited millions of  living rooms as host of the "Rick Steves' Europe" TV series. He writes a syndicated newspaper column. He's a prolific blogger and is active on Twitter and Facebook and every week he does a radio show which you will now be able to hear on KSER.  

Starting this weekend you can hear "Travel with Rick Steves" every Sunday morning at 9 a.m. on 90.7 KSER-FM, 89.9 KXIR-FM and online at

From his bio at

Rick is outspoken on the need for Americans to fit better into our planet by broadening our perspectives through travel. He is also committed to his own neighborhood. He's an active member of the Lutheran church (and has hosted the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America's national video productions). He's a board member of NORML (the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws). And Rick has provided his local YWCA with a 24-unit apartment building with which to house homeless mothers.

You can discover how travel has shaped Rick's world view and social activism here. 

Three years ago, when voters were considering Washington Initiative 502 to reform marijuana laws, Rick Steves conducted a powerful statewide barnstorming tour to advocate for reform. In less than 20 minutes you can watch his reasoning:

We're looking forward to hearing Rick Steves every Sunday morning on KSER.
