Did You Know?

The GB Story
Did you know that the very first TV episode of Growing Bolder aired on Orlando's WMFE-TV in October 2008? In our first season, we recorded our show on location at places like Walt Disney World's EPCOT and the historic Stetson Mansion.

In January 2010, our show also started airing in Tampa, putting us on two of the nation's Top 20 markets. But we were ready to make even more noise.

In July 2010, we partnered with American Public Television, a leading distributor of high-quality, top-rated programming to public TV stations nationwide. In September 2010, our show was fed out to hundreds of public TV stations across the country and we were overwhelmed with the enthusiasm and support we received from viewers in all parts of the country.

When our second national season of the Growing Bolder TV show kicks off this weekend, we'll be seen on more than 200 stations ... and growing! (BTW, KERA in Dallas just picked us up, y'all!)
