Richard Wiese

Host of Born to Explore

Richard Wiese is host of ABC’s adventure program called Born to Explore with Richard Wiese. Since he climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro at age 11, Richard has circled the globe capturing stunning images and living one adventure after another—from traveling with Bedouins in Africa to skiing to the North Pole. As a respected field scientist in 2002 Richard became the youngest man to become president of The Explorers Club. Richard believes the most memorable aspect of any journey is not “the summit” but the people you meet along the way.
