Growing Bolder Media announces the expansion of its popular Growing Bolder television program to WPEC in West Palm Beach, Florida.

Hosted by award­-winning journalists Marc Middleton and Bill Shafer, Growing Bolder shares the stories of ordinary people pursuing extraordinary lives. “There is nothing else like it,” says Growing Bolder CEO and Founder Marc Middleton. “Growing Bolder is an inspirational, active lifestyle that appeals to viewers of all ages because it shares the stories of men and women who are smashing stereotypes, redefining the possibilities of life after 50 and demonstrating that when it comes to living big, bold lives, it’s not about age, it’s about attitude.”

Already available in more than 50 million American homes, Growing Bolder will air twice a week on WPEC — viewers can tune in at noon every Saturday and at 5:30 a.m. every Sunday. “We’re thrilled to be joining CBS 12,” says Middleton. “WPEC is one of America’s top stations and does an incredible job of connecting with the local community. We’re anxious to begin telling stories of some of the amazing people in the West Palm Beach/Ft. Pierce area.”

Growing Bolder is based in Central Florida and launched in 2006 as the nation’s first-­ever social networking community for the 45+ market. It has since grown to a multi­platform media network, with a portfolio that includes national TV programs, radio programs, a bi­monthly magazine, a network of websites and a powerful social media footprint.

In addition to hosts Marc Middleton and Bill Shafer, Growing Bolder features correspondents Wendy Chioji and Secily Wilson, Olympic Gold medalists Rowdy Gaines and Dr. Dot Richardson, Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Roger McGuinn, infomercial icon Tony Little, renowned neurosurgeon Dr. Robert Masson, longevity expert Dr. Robert Landry, the Design Tourist Karen LeBlanc, and an all­-star team of inspirational experts.
