New Faces on Ducks Unlimited Television
Wade Bourne & Jared Brown Join Ducks Unlimited TV
MEMPHIS, TN, June 15, 2004 - Fans of Ducks Unlimited Television will find some new faces on DUTV when the outdoor hunting and conservation show kicks off its eighth season in July. Wade Bourne, a well-known outdoor broadcaster/writer, and Jared Brown, DU volunteer and Senior Vice President for Marketing and Communications, joined Marc Pierce in the field to film this season's episodes of DUTV. Bourne and Brown replace Oran Richard, who hosted the show with Pierce for several years.
"Oran is a hard act to follow, but I think we did it with Wade and Jared," says long-time host, Marc Pierce. "Wade and Jared are both dedicated conservationists and excellent outdoorsmen. Their wit and wisdom add a great new flavor to the show."
Jared Brown joins the show from Clearwater, Florida, where he volunteers with Ducks Unlimited. Brown served as an At-Large DU Board member in 1996, is on DU's Management Committee, and currently serves as Chairman of the Marketing/Communications Committee. Brown is a fun-loving outdoorsman with years of hunting and fishing experience.
Wade Bourne is one of the most recognized names in the outdoors media. His works appear regularly before national viewing, listening, and reading audiences. He is the founder and host of Pros' Pointers Radio, a syndicated fishing/hunting show that airs year-round throughout the U.S. Prior to joining DUTV, Bourne hosted the weekly fishing and hunting adventure series, Advantage Outdoors TV on the The National Network (TNN), for seven years. Bourne is the author of five books: "Ultimate Turkey Hunting," "Fishing Fundamentals," "Ducks Unlimited Guide to Decoys and Proven Methods for Using Them," "Ducks Unlimited Guide to Hunting Dabblers," and "Fishing Made Easy."
