Gulf Coast LIFE!

Tune in to WGCU-TV Sunday, July 27 at 11:30am, to catch a new program hosted by FM Station Manager and News Director Amy Tardif. The insightful news magazine program, called Gulf Coast LIFE!, brings our radio team at WGCU News into the television studio for several video segments that capture intriguing aspects of life here in Southwest Florida. From a segment produced by Morning Edition Host John Davis equine-assisted therapy for veterans, to Tardif's in-depth feature on whether the condition of the gulf's pink shrimp can show us how Everglades restoration is doing, the magazine-format program seeks to inform and educate. All Things Considered Host Topher Forhecz produced two segments — one that looks at how some golf courses are being transitioned back to their natural state and another on two racetracks revitalizing short-track car racing. The program even includes a segment on Google mapping of our coastline produced by veteran reporter and former host Valerie Alker.  WATCH HERE
