Bart & Rorie Russell
Bart and Rorie Russell are the “proprietors” of the Discover Small Town America Tour series. They’re both big small town boosters and road trip junkies. Bart is a leading authority on the Nation’s 34,000 small towns and their 140 million residents. President Reagan called him “the voice of small town America”. Rorie loves to search the countryside for special people and places. Her discovery and promotion of Jose’s Real Cuban Food in Bradenton, FL won Jose Baserva and his “joint” a spot on The Food Network’s Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives”.
