Mayor Atwell Launches Local Media

Former Sarasota Mayor and City Commissioner Suzanne Atwell announced plans today for The Suzanne Atwell Show, a multi-platform content initiative that includes branded Social Media, Digital Videos, and a half hour Public Affairs program.

Hosted by Suzanne Atwell, the show will debut in October and provide a venue for respectful, intelligent discourse on issues, events, and causes that shape the Sarasota/Manatee region. The mission of the project is to engage community leaders with in-depth interviews and news reports that promote public understanding and context in the rapidly evolving region we call the Suncoast.

The Digital and Social Media phase of the project begins June 9, 2017, with the launch of a website,, Facebook/SuzanneAtwellShow, and YouTube/SuzanneAtwellShow. Distribution partnerships for Suzanne Atwell Show programming are being negotiated with Broadcast Television, Cable, and Digital Direct. Final plans are to be announced later this summer.

Suzanne had this to say about the project, “I just felt the time was right to do something like this, whether it be Social Media like Facebook or traditional Public Affairs programming. I want to continue to be involved and work hard to create a trusted destination for truthful debate that hopefully contributes to a better informed and collaborative community.”

The show’s concept and production are developed and supervised by Executive Producer Steve Sabato. Sabato is a nationally recognized, award-winning media executive with forty years’ experience managing television stations and newsrooms. In addition to content development and media consulting, he currently writes and reports Editorials on WWSB-TV, the ABC affiliate in Sarasota, Florida.

Suzanne Atwell Show and affiliated digital platforms are owned and operated by Atwell Media, a Sarasota-based Limited Liability Corporation.
