DENVER (July 5, 2017) – Outdoor Channel host Eva Shockey has broken into The Hollywood Reporter’s Top 10 TV Personalities chart for the first time. Shockey, co-host of Jim Shockey’s Hunting Adventures debuts at No. 10 on the latest list.
The Top 10 also includes: Tyra Banks (1), HGTV’s Joanna Gaines (2), Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon (3), MSNBC’s Chris Hayes (4), noted celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay (5), Talk/Game show host Steve Harvey (6), political satirist/comedian Bill Maher (7), The Late Show host Stephen Colbert (8) and Martha Stewart (9).
The Hollywood Reporter’s Top TV Personalities chart is a ranking of the most popular television personalities on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, YouTube and Google Plus. The chart blends social engagement on the aforementioned platforms along with weekly additions of followers/subscribers. Television personalities are defined by THR as performers primarily known for their appearances on their own TV series, including hosts of entertainment/news shows. The latest tracking week ended June 27.
A world-famous bowhunter who defies the stereotype that hunting is a man’s game, Eva Shockey is a real-life Katniss Everdeen – a television and social media star at the forefront of a new wave of women and girls in outdoor sports.
“Eva is a magnanimous personality and it is not surprising that a mainstream publication like The Hollywood Reporter is taking notice,” Outdoor Sportsman Group President and CEO, Jim Liberatore said. “We suspect more media outlets will take notice of Eva and our many outdoor personalities as they continue to shine a light on our industry and help promote the outdoor lifestyle, as well as educate people on conservation efforts that may be misunderstood.”
Shockey also will be releasing her first book: “Taking Aim: Daring to be Different, Happier, and Healthier in the Great Outdoors” (Convergent Books) on August 29, 2017.
