North America’s only TV show all about air-powered guns, American Airgunner, has signed a 52-week 2013 agreement with Pursuit Channel to help anchor its Friday Night Firepower shooting bloc. The show airs Friday nights at 8:30 p.m. (EST), Fridays at 1:30 a.m. and again Wednesdays at 4:30 p.m. (all times Eastern) with all new episodes, hosted by Rossi Morreale and hunts with Steve Criner, beginning in July.
“Twenty-Thirteen is already a good year for American Airgunner. We have a primetime slot on America’s largest outdoors network that gives us the opportunity to entertain and educate viewers about airguns,” said Justin “JB” Biddle, executive producer of the show. “With Rossi Morreale as our host, Steve Criner’s high-energy hunts, and 5 Star Productions as our production partner, we’ll deliver airguns, technologies, hunts, and the Airgunner Challenge like never before seen on American Airgunner.”
In the coming new season, viewers will experience airguns for Olympic-style competition; large game; backyard fun; small game; training; plus guests from the airgunning industry that will bring some airgun history and information on current technologies.
The show’s producers are accepting applications for the Airgunner Challenge through February 22nd. For more information, visit www.americanairgunner.com and follow American Airgunner on FaceBook and YouTube to keep up with the show’s production throughout the first half of 2013.
“American Airgunner’s 52-week frequency commitment to Pursuit Channel separates the show from ninety-plus percent of the outdoors shows across all of the networks who carry hunting programming,” said Dennis Presley of MOOSE Media, Pursuit Channel’s exclusive marketing and sales associate. “And the injection of Morreale and Criner beginning in Q3 of this year will make it among the most popular shows on this or any network. Congratulations to the staff and producers of American Airgunner!”
Pursuit Channel has most recently announced dozens of new series starting January 2013, a website refresh and a new interstitial campaign that emphasizes the modern outdoors family. Additional growth initiatives will be revealed during the first half of 2013.
