Then on February 2nd, 2015, he launched the 5 day a week live program, That Business Show which aired for two years from 7am to 9am each morning on 1250 WHNZ.

The program was ended in October 2017 but past episodes remain online to listen to.

Wrapping up the program today was Christine Acosta, Founder of Pedal Power Promoters. Her vision is to make Tampa a world-class city for bicycle commuters. She founded Pedal Power Promoters in 2014 to spearhead bicycle-friendly initiatives through collaborative public and private partnerships.

Acosta works with key local, regional, and national cycling stakeholders in transportation, health, and urban planning. Her projects and committees include experts from the Tampa Downtown Partnership, Healthy St. Pete, Florida Department of Transportation, Florida Department of Health, AARP, the MPO’s Bicycle Pedestrian Advisory Committee, and the League of American Bicyclists.

The company creates and implements Bicycle Friendly Business(sm) Certification programs and provides professional bike valet services through its auxiliary company, Tampa Bike Valet, to serve and grow the area’s #PedalPopulation. In the two years since its launch, the woman-owned social enterprise has garnered regional and national prominence within the domain of Bicycle Friendly Business certification.

As enthusiastic as she is about cycling, Acosta was frustrated by her community’s poor safety record for bicyclists and pedestrians. The Pedestrian Danger Index rates Tampa Bay as the 2nd Worst In the nation. In 2015 she was on the founding board of non-profit Walk Bike Tampa. In 2016 she became its Executive Director. The group acted with urgency to ask for change when Lexi Miranda, 17, was hit and killed while crossing a major high-speed roadway to get to school. WBT pursued a Vision Zero Plan – “No loss of life on our roadways is acceptable” for Tampa. The Plan will serve as the platform for improving safety. Tampa’s City Council, Hillsborough County School Board, Hillsborough County Commission, and Metropolitan Planning Organization have passed resolutions in favor of Vision Zero.
