NEW YORK (October 31, 2017) – Outdoor Sportsman Group’s (OSG) global, subscription-based, video on-demand service MyOutdoorTV (MOTV) has acquired legendary fisherman and host, Mark Zona’s program – Zona’s Awesome Fishing Show.
Outdoor Sportsman Group has obtained seven full seasons of Zona’s Awesome Fishing Show – more than 40 hours of fishing content. MOTV and Mark Zona will partner to promote MOTV as the exclusive destination for his programming.
“As a host, Mark Zona is fun, entertaining and educational,” Outdoor Sportsman Group President and CEO, Jim Liberatore said. “We’re proud to have him and his series, Zona’s Awesome Fishing Show, in our ever-expanding MOTV lineup.”
The acquisition of exclusive content from Zona’s fishing program library follows other MOTV acquisitions of best-in-class programming including the libraries from: Jim Shockey and Shockey Productions, Brian “Pigman” Quaca, Heartland Bowhunter, the late Jose Wejebe’s Spanish Fly, Bill Jordan’s Realtree Outdoors, Ralph and Vicki Cianciarulo’s Archer’s Choice and The Choice; three programs from Drury’s Outdoors, a trio of elk hunting programs – Into the High Country with Jason Matzinger, Pure Hunting and Western Hunter and Jana Waller’s Skull Bound TV. The OSG initiative is designed to partner with its best producers, talent and hosts to acquire content for linear, digital, print and mobile platforms with one click.
“From our first season – many years ago – until now, Zona’s Awesome Fishing Show has detailed the highs, lows, touchdowns and interceptions through hundreds of lakes in the United States,” host Mark Zona said. “Along the way, viewers have seen some huge catches and several train wrecks. But in the end, it's been one heck of a ride.”
