Brotherhood Outdoors Returns to Sportsman Channel June 28 for Season Three
Nashville, TN-The Union Sportsmen’s Alliance’s (USA) award-winning hunting and fishing TV Show, Brotherhood Outdoors returns to Sportsman Channel for a third season starting June 28-airing at 8 p.m. (E/P) on Thursdays.
A staple in Sportsman Channel’s â€˜Made in America’ programming, Brotherhood Outdoors puts American workers in the spotlight, taking viewers into their homes and communities, on their job sites and into the wilderness for exciting hunting and fishing adventures across North America. Guests on the series have the opportunity take part in an outfitted North American adventure or to act as a guide, inviting the show’s host to their favorite hunting or fishing locations.
”Union sportsmen across the country come together every Thursday night to celebrate their brothers’ and sisters’ hunting and fishing pursuits,â€ said AFL-CIO President and USA Board Chairman Richard Trumka. “What could be better than a 100% union-dedicated TV show that highlights the community and conservation work being done by more than six million union sportsmen.â€
The premiere episode on June 28 will feature an adrenaline-pumping Montana Elk hunt with IBEW Local 26 member Scott Callaghan. A fourth generation union member from Maryland and former U.S. Marine, Callaghan recently recovered from a battle with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. This will be his first major hunt since going into remission. In addition to Callaghan, season three guests include a mix of firefighters, boilermakers, bricklayers and more.
The exclusive network of Brotherhood Outdoors and the USA, Sportsman Channel is the only television and digital media company fully devoted to the more than 82 million sportsmen and women in the United States.
“With 22 new series and 70 new episodes featuring the American sportsman, Sportsman Channel is the perfect fit for Brotherhood Outdoors,â€ said USA Executive Director Fred Myers. “Partnering with Sportsman Channel allows us to honor some of the hardest working men and women in the country by showcasing their enthusiasm for hunting, fishing and conservation on national TV.â€
