'SoFlo Home Project' to debut April 2

Martin Amado to serve as host of Local 10's new home improvement show


PEMBROKE PARK, Fla. – "SoFlo Home Project" is coming to Local 10 in April.

The locally produced home improvement show debuts at 11 a.m. April 2.

Hosted by South Florida home designer Martin Amado, "SoFlo Home Project" will immediately follow "SoFlo Taste" in the Local 10 Saturday morning lineup.

"We are extremely excited about our newest locally produced show in our Saturday morning lineup," WPLG President Bert Medina said. "'SoFlo Home Project' joins Local 10 News and 'SoFlo Taste' to round out our Local 10 Saturday morning schedule, and it's great to have Martin Amado hosting the show. His years of experience on local and national TV make him uniquely qualified for this exciting new show."

Amado is an interior decorator, lifestyle expert and prolific writer on the subject of home décor. He's been a fixture on South Florida television for the past 11 years, appearing on ION Television, HGTV and the Home Shopping Network.

"On 'SoFlo Home Project,' I will specialize in makeovers, working with SoFlo homers (homeowners) to achieve the decorator look for less," Amado said. "I'll be showing our viewers actual projects they can do at home for their home."

"SoFlo Home Project" will also have other features, including outdoor spaces, landscape design and real estate.

Medina said the show "is the next step in our mission to super-serve our South Florida community."
