PULASKI, NY - - With preparations completed on filming of the epic 2012 "The Run," Team E Media is excited to announce the Sportsman Channel, reaching into 50 million homes, as the official national network for the mini-series. "The Run" will debut on the Sportsman Channel April 29 and run through the end of June 2013.
"The Run" will air 3 times weekly, with the Sportsman Saturday's fishing block being the prime showing. "The Run" is a 4-part mini-series that chronicles the annual salmon run beginning on Lake Ontario and continuing up New York's Salmon River in Oswego County.
"We will showcase the trials and tribulations of the people, businesses, and fishing guides that take part in this yearly natural phenomenon," said Team E Media President Pat Donnelly.
"Few places in North America offer trophy caliber, cold-water sports fishing opportunities like the waters in and around Oswego County, NY. When serious anglers consider the variety of species available and the fact that there have been 10 State and World records harvested here, the choice becomes easy," said David Turner, director of Community Development, Tourism and Planning for the County of Oswego. "We have enjoyed working with the producers of the show and look forward to welcoming even more visitors to the County as a result of their efforts."
The public can view and comment on several of the characters and locations to be included in the airing of "The Run" by logging onto facebook.com and search for "The Run" TV series or the web at www.theruntvseries.com.
Donnelly said community and advertising support from local businesses and national sponsors has been tremendous. "We can't be happier with the response from the businesses and officials in Pulaski and the surrounding area," said Donnelly. "We (Team E Media) are committed to making "The Run" a success and now we know it will be because of the positive support and national coverage on the Sportsman Channel."
National companies committed to supporting this programming on the Sportsman Channel are Scout Look Weather Apps, Action Trackchair, LEEK Hunting & Mountain Preserve, Rapsody Rods, NASCAR Racing Experience and Oswego County Tourism to name a few.
