Crawford Entertainment

Seminole County native Chad Crawford graduated from Full Sail University but bounced around doing odd jobs until he and wife Kristy mortgaged their home to launch Crawford Entertainment. As producer and host of a syndicated television and multimedia program, “How to Do Florida with Chad Crawford,” the third-generation Floridian has found his niche. Now in its fourth season, the program allows Crawford to travel the state introducing viewers to everything from caves in Ocala to fishing for grouper in the Gulf. About 14 million viewers tuned in during the third season, and a growing lineup of sponsors has the fourth season off to a strong start.
