The History of Angler & Hunter TelevisionA production of the OFAH
Twenty years ago, members of the Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters (OFAH) proposed that the OFAH start broadcasting its passion for the outdoors to a new generation of viewers hooked on Saturday morning fishing shows.
OFAH members knew that growing the organization meant reaching out to a wider audience of anglers and hunters. OFAH members knew that having a strong television presence would help bring the OFAH’s conservation message to tens of thousands of homes every single weekend. Those members were right!
In 1993, in a leap of faith, the OFAH made its move to outdoor television “prime time.” Today, Angler & Hunter Television stands out as TV’s most comprehensive outdoors program of its kind – a show that represents OFAH values and cuts to the chase on issues important to anglers and hunters.
In 2010, Angler & Hunter Television was voted Best Fishing Show by Wild TV viewers, and in 2011 the show took home the prestigious Wild TV Grizzly Lifetime Achievement Award.
In 2012, Angler & Hunter Television welcomed Mike Miller, one of Canada’s most successful bass anglers to the host and executive producer spot.
The rest is history!
