FALL RIVER — A hard day at the office for Tom Richardson meant hanging out on the Taunton River catching 36-inch striped bass, then heading to lunch at Pier 52 on the waterfront.

When you run a travel and outdoor leisure TV show, other people’s fun time is your work time.

Richardson, who lives in Mattapoisett, is the host and executive producer of Explore New England, a TV series that spotlights outdoor activities and the people enjoy them across the region. He and filmmaker A.J. DaRosa were in Fall River last week enjoying a side of the city many people aren’t familiar with, and creating an episode that will appear in Season 4 of the show.

“Fifty percent of Fall River is water and woods,” Richardson said. “People don’t associate that with Fall River.”
