Back in October, Coral Gables Television began a podcast called “Why I Love Coral Gables.” Created by staffer Nick Saenz, the podcast interviews locals about their connection to the city and, of course, why they love it. “When I entered the job here at CGTV, I saw that podcasts were another platform for the city to reach out – and it’s one that we were missing,” says Saenz.

The inaugural episode featured Mary Snow, executive director of the Coral Gables Community Foundation. Other guests include Barbara Stein, executive director of the Miracle Theatre; Steven Krams, founder of the Coral Gables Art Cinema; and Karen Buchsbaum, a Gables resident, freelance writer and member of The Villagers, Inc., an organization dedicated to the preservation of historic sites.

“It’s been pretty eclectic, who’s been coming in [to the studio]. I think that’s one of the fun parts,” says Saenz, who encourages everyone to come on the show. “It can be really anyone that has something to say about Coral Gables or has a story they want to talk about.” To share your story go to coralgables.com/cgtv.
