Great story from WGLT in Illinois of Rivian's growth over the past 5 years from startup to the talk of wall street and the EV community.


t's been five years -- almost to the day -- since the word "Rivian" was first uttered publicly in Bloomington-Normal. Now, the electric automaker is the community's third-largest employer -- with 3,700 workers -- and just wrapped up one of the largest initial public offerings in American history. WGLT's Sound Ideas has this look back at the last five years, from small meetings with taxing bodies ... to stealth mode ... to the Nasdaq.
