Richmond's Morning News with John Reid

M-F 6a - 10a

In December of 2017 John Reid joined News Radio WRVA as the  new host of the daily morning drive-time talk show "Richmond's Morning News“ following in the footsteps of long-time host Jimmy Barrett. ​

The show is a return to Richmond's airwaves for Reid who previously spent a decade as the morning and noon co-anchor of Good Morning ​Richmond on WRIC-TV8 (ABC). There he anchored extended coverage of the D.C. sniper story, news surrounding the 9-11 attacks, numerous election cycles and assorted natural disasters across the region.

John has also worked as a consumer investigative reporter and as a news producer for the CBS affiliate station in Waco, Texas handling coverage of the aftermath of the Branch Davidian tragedy there. Read more
