Rick Massimo came to WTOP, and to Washington, in 2012 after having lived in Providence, R.I., since he was a child.

He wrote and edited for the Providence Journal for 17 years, winning awards for arts criticism, science and health reporting and diversity in media.

Rick went to George Washington University as an undergraduate and is regularly surprised at the changes to the city since that faraway time.

When he’s not at the station, he’s writing a book about the history of the Newport Folk Festival, tentatively set to come out in 2015.
