Robert G. Rose – Biography
Robert G. Rose is a successful media entrepreneur, producer, and host of the internationally syndicated television series, Raw Travel TV ®.
After flirting with long-term travel for years, in 2008 Rose sold his successful startup media company and had the opportunity to live and travel abroad full time. This experience cemented his love of travel and produced life-changing moments that inspired Rose to share his experiences by developing a TV show that would focus on authentic travel in a socially aware context.
This idea became reality in 2013 when Raw Travel ® premiered. Today heading into its 5th Season and 100th episode, the show can be seen every weekend in 168 U.S. cities in over 94% of the U.S. on CBS, ABC, NBC, Fox, CW, etc. affiliates. Raw Travel is also broadcast in several countries and territories around the world including on National Geographic in Asia, Amazon in India, Fox in Europe and many more.
The show can also be seen on a variety of In-Flight Entertainment (IFE) on a variety of domestic and international airlines such as Virgin America, Alaska Air, Air Canada, FinAir and more as well as several digital OTT (Over the Top) outlets coming in 2018.
With almost 50 million viewers tuning in annually in the U.S. alone, Raw Travel currently lays claim to have become the most watched authentic travel show on U.S. commercial television, broadcast or cable.
Raw Travel’s rapid rise lies in its DIY (Do It Yourself) approach to both filmmaking and travel. With a relentless mission of showcasing less publicized aspects of destinations and doing good while having fun, the show combines themes such as eco-tourism, voluntourism (giving back), underground music and subcultures.
Rose has visited over 50 countries and counting. When not traveling or working on Raw Travel, Rose reads voraciously, volunteers, blogs and runs his production & distribution company AIM TV Group & his digital record label, “Punk Outlaw Records”.
