Produced by an Emmy award-winning team of storytellers, Growing Bolder is now in its fourth season on American public television stations, with a proven track record of reaching and connecting with the 40+ audience.
“We share the inspirational stories of men and women who are reinventing themselves and redefining the possibilities of life after 40, 50, 70, 90 and even 100,” adds Widrick. “Our mission is to inspire people of all ages to believe that the rest of their life can be the best of your life.”
Growing Bolder is presented in partnership with WUCF TV in Orlando, Florida, and distributed nationally by American Public Television (APT).

Hosted by award-winning journalists Marc Middleton and Bill Shafer, Growing Bolder features advice and inspiration from some of the biggest names in health and well-being, music, arts, fitness, sports, and more.
“We live in a culture that tends to view growing older through a single lens of loss and limitation and the results are tragic, “says host and Growing Bolder Founder and CEO, Marc Middleton. “We share the stories of ordinary people who are living extraordinary lives, smashing damaging stereotypes and changing belief systems about what’s possible. Growing Bolder is the path forward whether you are a 35-year-old realizing for the first time that you are getting older, a 55-year-old wondering what’s next, a 65-year-old wondering if there is a what’s next, or a 75-year-old searching for purpose and meaning in a new life stage that’s filled with nearly limitless possibilities.”
