TV Series With Bill Cirone Puts Community Heroes in the Spotlight

Santa Barbara has heroes everywhere. Some are well-known, some are not. They do things large and small, every day, which makes our community a better place to live.

County schools Superintendent Bill Cirone highlights some of these local heroes on Cox 8 Special Series – Community Heroes. Heroes make a difference, and this series salutes them. 

The show recently welcomed a special guest, Olympic gold medalist Todd Rogers. Rogers sat with Cirone to talk about training for the Olympics, his Olympic victory and what success means to him.

The next series of shows will begin airing Monday through Saturday at 4:30 p.m. Here are local heroes who will be highlighted:

Oct. 13-26: Kate Carter

Oct. 27-Nov. 9: Ken Williams

Nov. 10-23: Rod Lathim

Nov. 24-Dec. 7: Paula Lopez

Dec. 8-21: Todd Rogers

Jennifer Muench is Cox Communications’ community relations manager.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
