RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — The American Civil War Center at Historic Tredegar has added some star power to its board.

The Richmond attraction says Norfolk native Tim Reid is among four new members named to its board.

Tim Reid as "Venus Flytrap" on WKRP in Cincinnati

Reid is probably best known for his role as “Venus Flytrap” on the 1970s television show “WKRP in Cincinnati.” Since then, he and his wife, Daphne Maxell Reid, have founded their own production studio, New Millennium Studios in Petersburg, where they produce films, TV series and other entertainment.

Reid joins on the Tredegar board architect Rachel O. Flynn, urban planner Anne Joline Wilkes and Richmond attorney O. Randolph “Randy” Rollins.

Tredegar is located along the James River in Richmond. It strives to interpret the Civil War from three perspectives: Union, Confederate and African American.
