Tina Morrison takes over hosting duties on Style TV version 2.0
“Style TV” is undergoing changes that will make our must-see video magazine bigger and bolder than ever.
First and foremost, we are going weekly! If you enjoyed our award-winning monthly Lake & Sumter Style show, you will love seeing us kick it up a notch by transforming the monthly show into weekly must-watch program.
“We will still focus on the people, places, and events that make Lake and Sumter a great place to live, work, and play,” says Kendra Akers, president of Akers Media. “But it will be more timely and more relevant to our audience. We feel people respond better to quick bursts of information rather than sitting through a 30-minute production. We anticipate this will not only serve our viewers better, but it will also benefit our sponsors.”
Those bursts of information will be delivered on location by our new “Style TV” host, Leesburg native Tina Morrison, who will draw on her homegrown knowledge to bring hyper-local programming to the television market.
“I’m very honored to be representing the county I was born and raised in,” Tina says. “I can’t wait to see ‘Style TV’ catapult Lake County into the limelight. We may not be the biggest place in Florida, but we have a lot going on, and I want to capture that on our show.”
Tina is no stranger to the camera. She has spent the last nine months as the Hi! Society correspondent on “Style TV.” Becoming the host fulfills a dream she has had since her pigtail-wearing days.
“This is something I have always wanted to do. I remember pretending to be a television reporter in the mirror as a kid,” she says. “Then when I came to Akers, I found my talent in hosting. The more I did it, the more I fell in love with it. Becoming the host was a no-brainer because I am so familiar with what we are trying to accomplish. I want to represent Lake County with loads of charisma and dedication. I want to show why people are so proud to call this place ‘home.’”
The rejuvenated show format is sure to entice new fans, but “Style TV” remains true to capturing the spirit of Lake County’s unique community.
“You’re still going to get a fun, upbeat show. You’re still going to be entertained and see the faces and places you recognize around town,” says Tina. “You’re still going to feel that sense of pride we have in being a voice for our community. The same fire will be there, but it’s getting a few degrees hotter.”
“Style TV” will feature many of the same segments that made the program widely popular. Hi! Society will continue to bring you all the highlights from local events. Whether it is festivals, concerts, or big name events like Leesburg Bikefest and Pig on the Pond, Tina and the rest of the “Style TV” crew will be there to interview who’s who and capture all the sites and sounds to make you feel like you are there.
Bon Appetit will still take you inside some of the area’s best restaurants to see what’s cooking, while the Cover Story will give viewers an intimate look at what it takes each month to produce the print edition of Lake & Sumter Style.
However, expect to see some new rotating segments that will feature exclusive interviews, scenes from around the community, and coverage of the hottest topics trending locally.
“We are very excited to be offering the latest information on such a regular basis now,” says Tina. “From ribbon cuttings to community barbecues, be on the lookout for ‘Style TV.’ It is going to be ‘E! News’ meets Lake County.”
