Pro Team Journal Announces Return to Outdoor Channel

Columbia, SC – Rather Outdoors is pleased to announce the upcoming season of the award-winning Pro Team Journal will air on Outdoor Channel and World Fishing Network. For the first time since 2019, the shows thirteen episodes will be back on Outdoor Channel bringing to outdoor network television some of the country’s finest anglers revealing what makes them successful on and off the water. Pro Team Journal will be “can’t miss tv” for anglers who are serious about honing their craft.

“We could not be more thrilled about the upcoming season of the Journal,” offered Rather Outdoors CEO Ken Eubanks following the agreement between the legendary fishing company and Outdoor Channel. “Nearly 20 years ago, we set out with one crew member and a handful of pro anglers to put together programming that would blend entertainment and the content to educate sportsmen.  Two decades later, the crew is bigger, and the fishing can be tougher, but the vision is the same. We are still driving to make our viewers better anglers.”

“We believe this is an important moment for our sport,” offered Mike Carney of the Outdoor Sportsmen Group, parent company of Outdoor Channel. “When I watch this programming, I want to feel like I am out there on the water with these anglers, and I want them to help me improve when I am out doing what I love. I believe the crew and these talented anglers nailed it with these episodes.”

A number of additional programming expansions are included in the Rather Outdoors – Outdoor Channel partnership. These include:

  • Pro Team Journal will include 13 new episodes that will air for 26 weeks on Outdoor Channel from January to June and 26 weeks on World Fishing Network from July to December
  • New seasons of Pro Team Journal and Kings of Bass will stream on My Outdoor TV starting in April of 2023
  • New seasons of Pro Team Journal will also be available on the KoBTV YouTube Channel starting in April 2023
  • Viewers will be able to stream current Pro Team Journal episodes and a new season of Kings of Bass on the KoBTV YouTube channel beginning October 2022

Each episode will reveal how our pros pick apart a fishing spot, choose the approach and develop a pattern.
