Original Programming:

City Life – Our longest running regular program began airing in the year 2000. It’s a half hour, magazine-style show hosted by John Nopper, which features numerous stories about life in the City of Sarasota. It’s fast-paced and fun with great variety, including anything from ribbon cuttings to water quality to zoning changes. Each episode also features a segment on the Sarasota Police Department hosted by Police Chief Bernadette Dipino.

City Business – One of our most popular shows, City Business features two stories per episode. Each story introduces you to one of our locally owned businesses here in the City of Sarasota.

City Kids – This show is where we turn our attention to the younger folks in the City of Sarasota. Whether it’s a special kid that we introduce the community to, or a unique program that’s helping the youth in our area, City Kids has it covered.

Commissioner’s Corner – This show is an opportunity for our elected officials to sit down with a guest or two and go in depth on a topic that is of special interest to them.

At the Van Wezel… - Here is where you get to find out all about the upcoming shows at the Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall. Hosted by Van Wezel Executive Director Mary Bensel, and Marketing Director Julia Mays, the show is a fun and lively look at the diverse and exciting coming attractions at the Hall.

PSA’s – Our staff produces PSA’s on an as needed basis. They can be as varied as a reminder to recycle, or an announcement of a new park.

Commission Reports – Before each regular City Commission Meeting, the Communications Division produces a brief informative preview designed to give viewers a summary of the meeting agenda. After the fact, we also produce a Commission Recap, summarizing some of the major actions from the meeting.

Special Programs – The Communications Division produces special video projects on an as needed basis.
