Outdoor Channel’s WildComm Shows Move from Monday to Thursday NightsJuly 5, 2016
DENVER (July 5, 2016) – Three popular Wildcomm series on Outdoor Channel – Legends of the Fall, Whitetail Freaks and Hunt Masters – have moved from Monday nights to Thursday nights.
Legends of the Fall, a series about deer hunting enthusiasts, will air every Thursday at 7 p.m. ET. The show does not limit itself to only adrenaline-charged, whitetail bow hunts across North America but also showcases a variety of big game adventures.
“Now that we’re delving into third quarter, viewers should be aware that three of their favorite WildComm shows are now airing on Thursday nights,” said Outdoor Sportsman Group – Networks CEO and President, Jim Liberatore. “We believe the switch will create a successful evening of programs that include these WildComm shows.”
Every Thursday at 7:30 p.m. ET, Whitetail Freaks will air exciting episodes following a dedicated and diligent crew on their hunt to acquire mega bucks. These hunters come from all walks of life and have vital things in common – passion for family, friends and whitetail hunting.
Hunt Masters will air every Thursday at 8:30 p.m. ET, bringing a breath of fresh air to outdoor television. The show takes viewers to the most epic and beautiful locations in the world for gripping, big-game hunts, including elk, moose, sheep and more.
“We have taken a new route for some of our nightly programming, for example positioning Monday evening to be outdoor lifestyle and adventure focused,” added Liberatore. “We want to do the same thing with some of our other nights’ programming blocks. Thursday’s theme is ‘Calls of the Hunt,’ and this is a better fit for these WildComm shows.”
“Moving these long-standing Outdoor Channel shows to Thursday night gives us the opportunity to deliver our programming to an entirely new audience,” added host of Hunt Masters and President of WildComm, Gregg Ritz. “We’re excited about the direction the network is taking and the expanded viewer demographic they are going to be able to bring in. It’s an exciting time for outdoor television and we are proud to be a part of it.”
