Almost 10 years ago sisters Jaime and Amanda Rich started their own local tv show called Swept Away TV. AT first they interviewed boy bands like NuGround and other local boy and girl groups. In their second season they began to branch out and interview bands like Jimmy Eat World, New Found Glory and Dashboard Confessional.
The shows were soon seen on more than 67 stations and then 4500 colleges on the OSTN Network. On the way to more than 1000 interviews more than 3300 students played a part in the show’s success. Thanks to student director Jeff Hendler and then Zac Rich and a revolving cast of students from all over the State of Florida, the show was part of a pilot for The N, won an AEGIS award for video production along with a national TELLY award and was voted the best video show in South Florida by NewTimes.
