Palin Returning To Reality Television
Like the swallows return to San Juan Capistrano, the former Governor of Alaska returns to her natural habitat:
Sarah Palin is making a reality TV comeback in 2014 with a show focused on the outdoors.
The former Republican vice presidential nominee will host “Amazing America with Sarah Palin” on The Sportsman Channel starting in April 2014. The weekly series will “explore some of the most original, interesting – and sometimes inspiring – people, places and pastimes connected to America’s outdoors lifestyle,” according to a press release announcing the unscripted program featuring Palin, also a Fox News contributor.
“I’m excited to help shine a light on all the great American sportsmen and women in the country who live the outdoors lifestyle,” Palin said in a statement. “Sportsman Channel is the leader in their industry and I am thrilled to be partnering with them on this show.”
This isn’t Palin’s first foray into reality TV. “Sarah Palin’s Alaska” aired for eight episodes starting in 2010 on TLC and was not renewed for a second season.
Sportsman Channel president Gavin Harvey said in a statement that the network is “ecstatic and very proud” Palin picked Sportsman Channel to return to unscripted TV.
“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,” Gavin Harvey said. “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.”
The Sportsman Channel, a niche channel for people interested in hunting, shooting and fishing, also airs programs such as NRA News’ Cam & Co. talk show, a series with rocker Ted Nugent and Big Deer TV.
Of course it does.
