Delmarva Today

Friday morning at 9AM

The Delmarva Peninsula is a rapidly changing place. Development is booming, we are becoming more diverse, and our arts scene is gaining recognition. Delmarva Today explores the issues and people who make living on the Peninsula such a unique place.

Your host, Don Rush, seeks out guests and issues that impact the daily lives of our listeners. How will possible wind power impact your wallet and the environment? Are local bloggers helping or hurting public discourse? Is there a way to balance the desire to preserve our small towns' heritage and encourage economic development?

From Dover to Wallops Island, from the Bridge to the Beaches and everywhere in between, Delmarva Today explores what's happening today and tomorrow in Delmarva.

You can now view most Delmarva Today programs on PAC-14.

It’s summer and we’re talking about the beach today; the sand, the sun, the warmth that draws us by the thousands to the edge of the sea. For those who live along the edge of the ocean, and even for those who visit for a short period of time a way of life develops that is more relaxed, open, and even accepting. There is a tactile sense—a feel of touching, being more like one with the rawness of nature. We could say there is something we might call beach life. Host Harold Wilson’s guest on today’s Delmarva Today: Writer’s Edition is Nancy Sakaduski.
