Sarah Palin Joins Sportsman Channel as Host of Original Series “Amazing America with Sarah Palin”
Sportsman Channel ^ | 9 Dec 13` | Tom Caraccioli

Posted on 12/09/2013 8:49:18 AM PST by xzins

Former U.S. vice presidential candidate, governor, best-selling author and original “Mama Grizzly” Sarah Palin returns to series television on Sportsman Channel to host a new show – the first part of the network’s “Red, Wild & Blue America” programming plan – for the fast-growing outdoor lifestyle network. Titled “Amazing America with Sarah Palin,” the weekly series will premiere in April 2014. The announcement was made today by Gavin Harvey, CEO of Sportsman Channel.

Amazing America with Sarah Palin is an anthology of stories that explore some of the most original, interesting – and sometimes inspiring – people, places and pastimes connected to America’s outdoors lifestyle. Governor Palin takes viewers coast-to-coast into what Sportsman Channel calls “Red, Wild and Blue America” – where the American Spirit and the Great Outdoors are celebrated in equal measure. From everyday people to business leaders and celebrities; in cities, suburbs and towns; the leader of the “Status Go” movement – Palin – will find the stories of people and places that share and reflect her passion for what makes America the great, amazing nation that it is.

"I'm excited to help shine a light on all the great American sportsmen and women in the country who live the outdoors lifestyle," said Sarah Palin, host of Amazing America with Sarah Palin. "Sportsman Channel is the leader in their industry and I am thrilled to be partnering with them on this show."

“Governor Palin is one of America’s most popular leaders, whose powerful love of country and passion for the great outdoors is inspiring to millions and millions of people,” said Gavin Harvey, CEO of Sportsman Channel. “As a sportswoman, humanitarian, and patriot who has visited every corner of the USA, there is no one more qualified to host Amazing America than Sarah Palin.”

Palin has been a dynamic figure in the media since her run in 2008 as Senator John McCain’s vice presidential running mate. She is a three-time New York Times best-selling author (Going Rogue, America By Heart and Good Tidings and Great Joy), generated almost 100 million Google hits and has nearly five million organic and engaged social media followers. Time Magazine also has named her as one of the “100 Most Influential People in the World” (2009, 2010). Governor Palin has been married to four-time Iron Dog champion Todd Palin for 25 years. They reside in Wasilla, Alaska, and have five children and two grandchildren.

Sportsman Channel is a part of the nation's largest multimedia company targeted exclusively to serving the information and entertainment needs of outdoors enthusiasts.

Except she’s starting to look like she needs to eat a couple Quarter pounders. Runners sometimes look gaunt and she’s gettin’ there. May be tough to pack a moose out of the back country being that lean. But maybe that’s what Todd’s for. LOL!

I wonder if democrats will complain endlessly about this, and will come up with all sorts of new derogatory comments?

She's hitting that age where the fat doesn't go where she'd like it to go. If she had those quarter-pounders, some folks would make comments that she's letting herself go.

2014 is a very important election year. Sarah just arranged to travel all over America (while getting paid a bunch) meeting and greeting people who love America.

That sure beats having to raise money from shysters to get exposure.

She is the smartest politician of our times.

<><><><><><><><><

When a major party candidate can get elected to anything (R or D) without taking money from shysters, that will signal a significant change in electoral realities. It will not be a reality in the next several election cycles. JMO.

In your estimation, will she be raising money to run for something herself, or is this so she can spread the wealth around to others?

I have been buying 20 Mule Team Borax for years and every time I make a purchase, I think of Mr. Reagan. Yes, hopefully this show will do the same for Mrs. Palin.

Sarah doesn’t have to sweat the details. She just needs to show the way. People will get on board. It won’t be individuals getting promoted as much as her pointing the direction back to the real USA.

The US is in a dark scary forest. It needs a beacon to help find its way. That is Sarah’s destiny.

I copy/pasted that from the sportsman’s channel website, but I wasn’t thinking about the cable, because I used dish tv.

I had to put in a zip code, so that was probably for cable. I’m guessing cable is location dependent.

Go here: http://www.thesportsmanchannel.com/#

Put in your zip code where it says (about middle) “get sportsman channel”

Thanks for the link, unfortunately my crappy Time Warner Cable does NOT provide this channel..figures, last night for hours I lost my internet and TV because of a severe outage in the area, now this..overpriced garbage that is what TWC is..maybe by the time this program airs we would have switched to Directv or something

The thing that is so maddening, and one of the prime reasons I dumped my dish, was the aspect that although I watched precious few channels, the high monthly bill was primarily due to the cost of a ton of truly loathesome, left-leaning sleaze channels which I never watched. It’s like financing/underwriting a mortal enemy.

On the bad side of things, when there does pop up a decent program that reflects my values, and one I wish to support, I’ve foregone my access.

We pay here for TWC 130 bucks a month, including internet(Which is how they get you, once you get used to high speed internet they know you wont want to leave) we hardly get any good channels, just the usual stuff, lifetime movie network, NBA TV, all of the ESPN Channels, other than that there is hardly anything ever on..and yesterday I missed the Laker game(Which was a good thing since we lost :( because of an “Outage” in the area, didnt have internet or TV for the rest of the evening(When the TV goes out the internet goes out too, they both work hand in hand)
My sister likes Dish, my aunt has Directv and likes it..just dont know which one is the better option, because of the internet with TWC that I want to keep it makes things more difficult

So you see this as indication there will be no Senate run for Sarah Palin? That makes sense.

It appears to be available on AT&T Uverse, but only on their U450 package.
I only have their U300 package, oh well.
No way I'm paying any more when I only watch maybe 12 hours of TV a week and most of that is FOX news/business and local news/weather when they are tolerable.
