Visit the hidden New England that only the locals know in Weekends with Yankee. This series is named for the long-running publication enjoyed by readers across America for more than 80 years. With New England among the nation’s top tourist destinations, the magazine-style program takes viewers on an insider’s exploration of the cities, countryside locales, and far-flung places in the quaint and scenic region.
The series is hosted by Richard Wiese (Born to Explore), an Emmy Award-winning TV personality, author, and explorer who has traveled to all seven continents, participated in two expeditions to Antarctica, and cross-country skied to the North Pole. Amy Traverso, a senior food editor at Yankee magazine who has appeared on The Martha Stewart Show and the Food Network’s Throwdown with Bobby Flay, joins Richard as co-host. She highlights recipes, local flavors, and the sense of community that make up the regions’ food and dining scene.
New episodes air every Monday at 10 p.m. beginning April 4, 2022 on CPTV Spirit, with encores on Saturdays at 7 p.m. on CPTV.
