WHO’s RVTV Tailgate Hits The Road Monday

Tribune Media’s NBC affiliate WHO Des Moines, Iowa (DMA 68), is packing up and moving out Monday morning for RVTV 2018, the station’s annual week-long Iowa/Iowa State tailgate party.

The channel 13 RVTV crew will be headquartered in a Plaza RV parked in the center of each town. This year’s route will make stops in Diagonal, Norwalk, Knoxville, Albia and Ottumwa on the way to Iowa City for the big game Saturday, Sept. 8.

Iowans can watch WHO’s RVTV coverage live all week long on Channel 13 News at 4, 5, 6 and 10 p.m. starting Monday, Sept. 3.

WHO’s RVTV team is captained by Sports Director Keith Murphy and co-captained by John Sears, Michael Admire and Chief Meteorologist Ed Wilson. “Iowa Nice Guy’ Scott Siepker rides along to provide unique essays on each town.

The popular fan sites Hawkeye Nation and Cyclone Fanatic also join the caravan with RV’s of their own. Each day starts with a special preview from RVTV veteran Andy Fales on the station’s Today in Iowa from 5 to 7 a.m.

This is the 18th year for RVTV, and as the tradition grows, so do the celebrations in each town visited. This year, the RVTV team is already hearing about celebrations planned at each of the tour stops including marching bands, dunk-tanks, a flash mob, tug-of-war over a river and special guests.


In addition to Hawkeye-Cyclone pregame coverage from Diagonal to Iowa City, WHO’s RVTV coverage will include extra features and behind-the-scenes exclusives on the station’s RVTV web page at, plus SoundOff Nation on Facebook, and @SoundOff13 on Twitter. Use the hashtag #RVTV.
