Sportsman Channel
Sportsman Channel took theming to a new level with its “United Sportsmen of America” campaign. Using its shows and talent as inspiration, the net created specific programming blocks. It’s all about anglers on Strike & Set Saturdays, while shooting enthusiasts are the focus on Lock and Load Mondays. To complement its promotional spots, the network created a super slick 16-page creative piece for various outdoor magazines featuring the various programming themes. It also focused on the generational aspect of the outdoor lifestyle, further uniting sportsmen who keep such traditions alive through passing the torch younger generations. The results? They set out to attract new shows and sponsors, and that they did.
