FirstCoast.TV is the “unofficial Web station of the First Coast,” created by Rivera. The site informs and educates about current events in the area and focuses on St. Johns County and the St. Augustine area – a hotbed for culture and tourism. St. Augustine Tonight is a weekly talk show on FirstCoast.TV, hosted, taped and streamed before a live audience in Florida’s fastest growing county. Rivera launched the show in April 2017 with 13 one-hour webcasts per season and 118 on-air guests for 39 shows in the first three seasons, shining the light on local artists, chefs, musicians, entrepreneurs, actors, philanthropists, clergy, authors and comedians via a Youtube channel. There are more than 15,000 viewers on YouTube and thousands of followers on multiple social platforms.
Rivera was born in New York and raised there and in Puerto Rico. A world traveler for most of his life who has held numerous occupations ranging from actor to fireman to interpreter and mechanic, Rivera is a 13-year St. Augustine resident. He shapes his joy of people, culture and cuisine and Argentine Tango into his focus on St. Johns County and St. Augustine with his media channels and is viewed as “The Gentle Voice of our Community.”
“Our mission to inform, educate and to keep our audience appraised of causes that affect us all as a community, from Ponte Vedra to Crescent Beach, with our hub being the City of St Augustine,” Rivera said. “Our goal is to talk to the people causing an event and those affected by it, whether that event be a concert in the park, a new city ordinance or a structure being built. Shining a beacon of light to the truth of an issue is a weighty responsibility that we will not shy away from and absolutely welcome.”
