This lifestyle show is another example of our commitment to the Hispanic community in the greater Tampa area.

A host of Todo Tampa Bay is Cristy Balderrama. Cristy is well known in Tampa Bay and has a huge following due to her strong ties to Latino culture.

To be able to continue to promote and celebrate our Latino culture now on television is a great honor that I humbly take. I am thrilled to be part of such a challenging and important project.

Cristy is married and a proud baseball/softball mom to her two children. When she’s not doing radio or now television, Cristy enjoys running, exercising and doing outdoor activities with her family.
