Former Holland America and Norwegian Cruise Line sales director Denella Ri'chard is launching a travel show focused on adventurous exploration on the CJC Network.
The "Traveling with Denella Ri'chard @Home Edition" series premieres July 26 with a mission to promote tourism and inspire people to travel, experience different cultures, and "bring us all one step closer to discovering the beauty of our shared humanity."
The CJC Network can be viewed on SelectTV, TikiLIVE channel 54, and DistroTV and downloadable on Smart TV's and devices.
The premiere episode journeys through Africa, featuring South Africa, Kenya, and Tanzania; talks with two travel guides about their jobs; and provides an update on how these destinations are dealing with Covid-19.
"The goal of the show is simply to keep the audience dreaming about the joys of travel, as we work our way through this Covid-19 period," Ri'chard said in a statement. "Those working in the tourism and hospitality industries will need each of us to support them by getting out, traveling, and patronizing local tourist businesses, as measures and protocols are put in place to safely do so."
Ri'chard has been listed among The Network Journal's "25 Influential Black Women in Business," Legacy Miami's "50 Most Powerful & Influential Black Business Leaders" of 2018 and was honored by the Black Meetings & Tourism Magazine with the "APEX Distinguished Service Award" in 2019.
