Tennessee's Wild Side
To Air Nationally

In its first season, Tennessee's Wild Side earned a coveted national award from the Association for Conservation Information. Not only will new episodes continue to be seen each week, across the state of Tennessee on Public TV, but they will make their national debut on The Outdoor Channel and will be seen regionally on Comcast Sports Southeast.

Produced by the Renaissance Center in Dickson, Tennessee, new episodes of Tennessee's Wild Side will again feature a diverse, fast-paced variety of outdoor experiences. Unique hunting and fishing stories will continue to be a staple of the show. Segments such as the endangered Whooping Cranes' first migration through Tennessee, how to prepare young kids for their first hike, and tours of the TWRA Wildlife Management Areas are just a few of the scheduled adventures sure to inspire viewers to take advantage of the fantastic outdoor resources that Tennessee has to offer.

Many of our viewers have reported learning about places and opportunities that they never knew existed before 'Wild Side' took to the airwaves. Our segment about the endangered Royal Snail caused several viewers to call the Agency to report the possibility of that species of snail on their property. "We never would have received a call like that from the public, had we not had our TV show on the air," reports Richard Kirk, TWRA Non-Game Endangered Species Coordinator.

Conservation issues will be featured, like the importance of wetlands, habitat improvement for wildlife management and the best places for wildlife viewing.

Detailed information about segments, scheduling, streaming video clips and guides featured on Tennessee's Wild Side is available on the web site at

Familiar faces like Survivor's Gretchen Cordy and professional angler Joey Monteleone will contribute new stories in the upcoming season. Be sure and check the schedule of the Public TV channel in your market, lace up your boots, and take a walk this week on Tennessee's Wild Side.
