Nashville, TN—The Union Sportsmen’s Alliance’s award-winning hunting and fishing show, Brotherhood Outdoors, will return for a new, surprise-filled season on Sportsman Channel starting at 11 a.m. ET on Sunday, January 6.
Boasting a coveted Sunday morning time slot, new co-hosts Daniel Lee Martin and Julie McQueen, and a fresh line up of elusive game and fish, the new season will give viewers an intimate glimpse into the outdoor pursuits of some of America’s hardest working sportsmen and women.
Winner of a 2012 Sportsman Choice award and a 2013 nominee, Brotherhood Outdoors awards union sportsmen and women who are committed to preserving North America’s outdoor heritage with a guided trip or the opportunity to show off their guiding skills and local hunting or fishing destinations on national TV.
“What I love about Brotherhood Outdoors is that it’s not just about big horns and monster fish,” said host Daniel Lee Martin. “It’s about the traditions and family ties that bind America’s blue-collar sportsmen together. It’s about showcasing the relationships that can be fortified out in the woods and on the water.”
On January 6, viewers will join Mark Spreadborough, an HVAC Mechanic, member of United Association Local 290 and proud father, as he attempts to harvest a Vancouver Island black bear with his great-grandfather’s 1895 Winchester rifle.
“Viewers can expect a lot of exciting changes this season,” said USA Executive Director Fred Myers. “What won’t change is the show’s focus on everyday union sportsmen and women and their commitment to their communities and the preservation of our outdoor heritage.”
Presented by Bank of Labor, Brotherhood Outdoors is also sponsored by the following union and contractor partners: Employee Benefit Systems, International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers, International Association of Sheet Metal, Air, Rail and Transportation Workers, International Brotherhood of Boilermakers, International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, National Electrical Contractors Association, and United Association/International Training Fund.
