HOTspots Happening Out will launch a new entertainment television show that focuses on the LGBTQ+ take for nightlife, entertainment, movies, TV, Broadway, and queer pop culture.  Called “The W Boys”, the show includes two hosts that represent the best of WEHO’s Santa Monica Boulevard and South Florida’s Wilton Drive.

The new show will be a video television extension of Hotspots Magazine, one of America’s oldest and most respected LGBTQ+ lifestyle magazines celebrating 40 years in 2024.  The show will lift Hotspots ‘Queer Culture’ literally off the page.  The show promises “WEHO 2 Wilton… Nothing Is Off The Table.” The fun show will be like traditional pop culture shows including Entertainment Tonight and Mario Lopez’ Access Daily.  ‘The W Boys’ will deliver gossip, news, and pop culture about LGBTQ+ entertainment issues in an historic first for South Florida.

The WEHO host is Eric Restivo.  A well-known DJ who had residencies at some of West Hollywood’s most iconic gay clubs.  He was also the host of the popular podcast “Hello, Sweetie” that interviewed everyone from RuPaul stars to the most interesting in our entertainment community.  WILTON host is John Hayden.  He is the senior reporter of OUT SFL (formally South Florida Gay News). He has also had a 20+ year career in television network entertainment and celebrity interviews including a long-time seat at Fox Televisions ‘Deco Drive’.

‘The W Boys…WEHO 2 Wilton” will premiere at 12 noon on March 15 and then will broadcast every Friday live and then on demand on YouTube, Facebook, ROKU, Apple TV and other streaming platforms.
