“Many of our viewers are responding to the economy by taking a new look at how they can refresh and reinvigorate their homes,” said RLTV Senior Vice President of Programming and Production Elliot Jacobson. “They have come to rely on America’s handyman, Bob Vila, over the course of many years for insight, tips and advice on renovations large and small.”

“I am very excited to be bringing Home Again with Bob Vila to RLTV, and feel a strong bond with the network’s Generation 50+ audience, with whom I have built a relationship that goes back three decades,” said Vila. “We look forward to re-introducing Home Again to viewers who may have moved into a whole new life stage, or are looking for insight and inspiration for their latest home remodeling projects,” said Vila.

Vila’s rapport with the audience is based on his ability to tell a story and offer useful tips throughout the remodeling process.  He relates the fascinating history of architecture, from art deco South Beach hotels and condos to Manhattan’s famous brownstones, while offering practical suggestions that help homeowners realign resources and layouts to meet the evolving needs of modern lifestyles.  Vila also takes on timely topics such as affordable housing, energy efficiency, and how to construct a storm-resistant home.
