MIAMI BEACH — Today marks another first for the Yacht & Brokerage Show: the first live streaming broadcast from the show, beginning at 2 p.m.

Boat Show Radio Network, presented by the AIM Marine Group, will be streamed online at www.aimmarinegroup.tv today and Saturday. Each broadcast will begin at 2 p.m. and last until about 4 p.m.

The broadcasts are hosted by L.J. Wallace, a 20-year veteran of marine broadcasting.

“I’m all about celebrating the maritime realm and the marine trades industry,” Wallace said, “and this is the next step. I’m really excited about it.”

The show format consists of Wallace interviewing show participants — “the movers and the shakers,” as he puts it.

The setting for the show is the top deck of the South Beach Lady, docked at Ramp 17 (slip 131) along Collins Avenue. The yacht is being used for the AIM Marine Group Pavilion, which is hosting events throughout the Yacht & Brokerage Show.

Promoting the show this way should appeal to those walking the docks as well as those who are not attending, Wallace says.

“If you’re at the boat show and tune in to the broadcast on your smartphone or tablet, we might just tell you about something at the show you’re not aware of,” Wallace says. “Conversely, if you’re somewhere other than Miami, you can tune in and get a taste of the show — live as it happens.”
