“Sport Fishing TV” will move to Destination America this weekend at the start of the new year.
Drew Townes, director of brand strategy for Sport Fishing Television, said Destination America airings will start on Saturday and run weekly for 26 weeks at 8:30 a.m. (EST) on Saturdays and 5 a.m. (EST) on Sundays.
“We are ecstatic to be joining Destination America, one of the Discovery Communications networks,” Townes said in a statement. “The outdoor block of programming provides elite content, and ‘Sport Fishing TV’ viewers will get unprecedented coverage like never before with primary spots.”
Discovery Communications owns Destination America.
“Destination America’s weekend outdoor block has expanded over the past two years to include the top names and shows in the outdoor genre,” Destination America vice president of programming and strategy Matthew Butler said. “We are looking forward to bringing Sport Fishing Television, a part of Bonnier Corp., to the network.”
The Pursuit Channel also will have the shows, starting on Friday and continuing for 26 weeks. Air times will be on Fridays at 1 p.m. (EST) and Sundays at 2:30 p.m. (EST). Sun Sports Florida and Fox Sports will begin to run content later in the year.
