“The Review” will showcase a new city each week and will feature destinations, attractions, interesting places, historical landmarks and restaurants in those areas. In each segment, the host shares their experiences of the sights, sounds, and environment that the city or area has to offer and takes the audience to the scene (and often behind the scenes) of events, attractions and fun things to do. The hosts act as tourists and interact with various people including staff, guests and the audience and will share the story and appeal of those places in a fun and entertaining way. The target audience is one that has a passion for travel and unique points of view.
