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 rebranded as RVing Today in 2022 to better represent the business.
Jeff began his automotive journalism career back in the late ‘70s as an Oregon-based photographer/writer freelancer, then started his first staff job at Truckin’ Magazine in 1982. Subsequent jobs at Four Wheeler magazine and a long stint as Technical Editor for Trailer Life magazine and MotorHome magazine were the basis for his 35-plus years of RV experience. His film work started back in junior high school and continues, for the last 10 years, as a producer and contributor for RVing Today TV.
New RV road test reports, technical product and how-to features are among his specialties, all created from a real-world user perspective. He and his wife Pam continue to enjoy their love of camping and RV travel adventures as well as pursuing their interests in the model railroading hobby.
In 2015 Jeff was honored with the RVIA Award for Distinguished Achievement in RV Journalism. The Distinguished Achievement in RV Journalism Award is presented to journalists for exemplary coverage of the RV industry or RV travel.
