Sept. 20, 2012, BALTIMORE, MD -- RLTV’s irrepressible travel adventurer Stanley Siegel brings his quest for adventure to new heights as he crisscrosses the globe exploring exotic international destinations as well as national treasures during the third season of Stanley on the Go. Premiering Thursday, Sept. 27 at 9 PM ET, Stanley on the Go envelops the viewer in the grandeur, rapture and ceremony of centuries-old traditions while also exploring emerging travel trends such as eco-tourism, when he hits the road to explore 13 new destinations this season. The former WABC-TV broadcaster’s travels take him to Varanasi, India; Vienna; Mexico City; Calcutta; Bangkok; New York City; Bali; Grand Cayman; and the Panama Canal via a Crystal Cruise, Yellowstone National Park; Salzburg and Innsbruck, Austria; Nicaragua; and Nepal. From the lightheartedness of tequila taste-testing to the spirituality of observing funeral pyres on the shore of the Ganges River, Stanley lets viewers see the iconic sights, but also uncovers the unexpected.
“Stanley’s thirst for adventure and exploring new cultures sends a clear signal that curiosity and the quest for knowledge transcend age – and may actually increase as we grow older and have more disposable income and time to travel,” said RLTV Senior Vice President of Programming and Production Elliot Jacobson.
In its third season, Stanley On the Go is marked by host Siegel’s intrepid style, charm and humor, while offering viewers expert travel tips, must-see locations and once-in-a-lifetime opportunities to come alongside him and peek into some of the most compelling destinations on earth. The new season includes 13 half-hour episodes.
About Stanley Siegel
Stanley Siegel has been an unforgettable media presence for more than three decades. In the 1970s and 80s his uncompromising talk show on WABC ensured that he was a defining personality of the New York airwaves. He interviewed everyone who defined the era, from Truman Capote to Frank Zappa, from Patti Smith to Renee Richards. His approach was no holds barred, opinionated, and fearless—he made it personal. Stanley challenged the expectations of what a talk show could and should be and broadened the boundaries of the genre. He regularly brought on his therapist and underwent treatment on-air. In one infamous show he physically restrained Timothy Leary to prevent him from leaving. Stanley came out of retirement to bring his fearless style to Stanley On The Go.
