The announcement was made today by President and CEO of Outdoor Sportsman Group Matt Hutchings.
Michael Waddell and Bone Collector have a long history with Outdoor Sportsman Group and continue to be an industry-leading content provider for audiences across the country. Known for their entertaining personalities, Bone Collector hosts Waddell, Nick Mundt and Travis “T-Bone” Turner documents the culture of hunting – whether bugling elk in Colorado, chasing big whitetails in Kansas or giant Nebraska mule deer. The camaraderie, laughs and passion for the outdoors brings together family and friends and makes for a great show. Bone Collector is a true depiction of the hunting lifestyle and highlights the brotherhood and sisterhood of hunting while also providing world-class production.
“We’re excited to have Michael and the Bone Collector team as an exclusive partner with our media businesses as we continue to lead the future of outdoor entertainment across all current and future platforms,” Hutchings said.
“My passion for the outdoors and belief in the people that make up the culture are worth celebrating,” Waddell said. “Having the chance to share this and distribute the best of the outdoors on national TV and many other places is a must! I’m excited that now, and in the future, Outdoor Sportsman Group gives us that opportunity.”
“We continue to invest and build on what is the best content available in outdoor entertainment,” Outdoor Sportsman Group Head of Programming Tim Cremin said. “Michael is the perfect partner for us on all our platforms moving forward into the future.”
The partnership is an exclusive, multi-year arrangement between the two entities and involves not only Michael and the Bone Collector series of shows, but development of new and upcoming talent in the outdoor industry.
Bone Collector airs Sundays at 9:30 p.m. ET on Outdoor Channel.
