Friends and supporters of Rhea Feikin, Maryland’s “First Lady of TV” gathered at her professional home – Maryland Public Television – to honor her.
The gathering was treated to a fun video that retraced Rhea’s history on Baltimore television, then heard more about her from her daughter, Jennifer Feikin…
…and son, Dr. Daniel Feikin. Her children also sponsored the redo and rename of MPT’s green room in honor of their mom.
