BALTIMORE, March 3, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Renowned Journalist John Palmer is hosting The Spirit of America sponsored by Physicians Mutual, a new series showcasing seniors who have approached retirement not as a finishing line, but as a starting post, finding ways of using their experience, their talents, and their hard-won wisdom to give their communities a brighter future while doing what they love best.

Hosted by John Palmer, the former news anchor for The Today Show and a 40-year veteran journalist, The Spirit of America travels across the country to discover ordinary people finding ways to turn their new freedom into an opportunity for starting a whole new life, one that is based on improving the lives of others.   We'll meet folks like Bill, who still plays ice hockey well into his eighties - even though he has two replacement hips, Mary Anne who creates contemporary art masterpieces and connects with her Granddaughters through quilting, and Fran, a cancer survivor who created an organization to help find missing and abducted children. Ordinary people living extraordinary lives – and their stories will only be found on The Spirit of America.

If you are interested in interviewing John Palmer or would like further information please contact Hali Simon at

The Spirit of America premieres on RLTV Monday, March 7 at 9:00 PM and moves to its regular time period, Thursdays at 8 PM, on March 10.
