Jose has been creating and producing recreational based television programs since January, 2000 when he launched Boating Today, a weekly, boating lifestyle program that covered all aspects of recreational boating.
By late 2002, Boating Today was the #1 weekly boating, lifestyle television program and held that spot until late 2008 when the economy sank.
In 2010, Jose turned his attention to another form of recreational activity, RVing and camping, and created Rollin’ On TV. Again the television program quickly became the countries #1 weekly RV and camping lifestyle tv program with a household reach approaching 40-million homes and is viewed by 350,000 to 375,000 people a week on television on both cable and satellite TV and associated media outlets. Rollin’ On TV celebrates its 10th anniversary in 2020!
Rollin’ On TV has established itself in the social media world with an active following on Facebook, its Facebook group, YouTube, Vimeo and Instagram.
