Growing Bolder — and looking for a presenting station

The impending sale of WMFE-TV in Orlando to religious broadcaster Daystar leaves Growing Bolder without a presenting station. It's WMFE's only local production, shining a light on the older yet vibrant folks among us. The series started last season on 20 pubTV stations and is now up to 275. "We’re looking at this as a chance to move to a presenting station in a bigger market with more infrastructure to promote and secure underwriting," former local anchor Marc Middleton, who now heads Growing Bolder Media, tells the Orlando Sentinel. "WMFE has been a great partner, but without any staff on the TV side, we’ve had to do all the sales and marketing on our own. We’re looking forward to moving to a partner who will assume some of those responsibilities.”
