The Sportsman Channel will soon have a grizzly on the team – a mama grizzly, that is. The channel announced early last month that the former Governor of Alaska, and 2008 Republican Vice Presidential candidate will join the team in April as host of the weekly original series “Amazing America”.
Dubbed the “First Lady of the Outdoors” by Gavin Harvey, CEO of Sportsman Channel, Governor Palin will take viewers on a “coast-to-coast” journey through “Red, Wild and Blue America” showcasing “some of the most original, interesting – and sometimes inspiring – people, places, and pastimes connected to America’s outdoor lifestyle”.
Given her love for the outdoors, the passion she and her husband Todd share for hunting and fishing, and the fact that she’s spent much time traveling all over the United States in recent years, I can’t think of a better host to attract viewers to the all-American outdoor channel.
It seems Sarah is particularly hopeful the show will motivate young ladies to step outdoors. “I’m especially encouraged to have opportunities to empower young women to get outdoors, be self-sufficient, and work extremely hard so they can live life vibrantly,” Sarah told her Facebook followers earlier this week. “See, I’m convinced the world will be a better place,” she continued, “when we have more girls holding fish in pictures and fewer holding selfie cameras in front of the bathroom mirror.”
