Cindy Gaillard

Director of Local TV Content

Cindy Gaillard is a multiple Emmy Award-winning television producer who started in public broadcasting in 1988 at KNME TV5 in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Yes, she would be happy to give you a tour of the Breaking Bad landscape and will encourage you to discover the Balloon Fiesta every October, hikes in the Sandia Mountains and Sadie’s – a much better restaurant than any drug kingpin could ever run. She has produced numerous documentaries and concert specials (Columbus Jazz Orchestra, ProMusica) and currently contributes to both Broad & High and Columbus Neighborhoods.

She loves her adopted home of Columbus – a resident of Clintonville since 2001 – where she has fallen in love with trees (wow, they’re big here) and the history of the city (James Thurber really lived here!).

Cindy holds a BS in child psychology from The University of New Mexico and is completing her MFA at The Ohio State University in creative writing.

Ways to Connect

Bob Grove

When the order came to shelter in place, in the hopes of flattening the infection rate of COVID-19, I immediately thought of Bob Grove.

He’s a friend, has been sheltering in place for over a year. In March 2019, Grove was diagnosed with leukemia, and from that moment on, he has spent most of his time either at the hospital or at home.
