Erin Ovalle, host of the Maine lifestyle show MaineLife, celebrated the show’s season 2 launch and partnership with MaineToday Media with a reception at the Press Hotel for behind-the-scenes supporters of the show. Season 2, which starts April 2, will have wider distribution because it will be available through MaineToday.com and PressHerald.com as well as WCSH-TV on Sundays at 11:30 a.m. New co-host Kevin Oates, founder of the Maine Youth Rock Orchestra, is bringing more music into the content mix. But fans of Erin’s in-the-Fiat interviews will see more of that as well.
