Lunkerville Moves to Saturday Mornings on CBS Sports

Award-Winning Outdoors Show Celebrates 15 Years on National Television

New York, NY, July 17, 2019 --( The internationally syndicated television show Lunkerville
has a new time and air day for its 2019 broadcast season: 8am on Saturday morning on CBS Sports
Network, the coveted weekend morning slot. “This is the ideal place for Lunkerville,” says Director/Host
Mike de Avila. “If you're an angler and you're not fishing on Saturday morning, you're watching fishing
on TV. It's also a time when a lot of families are at home. Our goal has always been to reach and entertain
even folks who don't fish! Lunkerville is a great introduction to a sport that's fun and affordable and has
the added benefit of bringing family and friends together.”

Lunkerville is in its 15th year of continuous, weekly national broadcast. From its inception, the series was
an immediate hit with outdoorsmen - and women - on The Sportsman Channel, winning viewer-favorite
fishing show three years in a row, Viewer Favorite Host and Best Freshwater Fishing Episode. Its
popularity continues to rise, as evidenced by its burgeoning Facebook fan-base, now close to 600K
followers with engagement that places it among the top fishing show Facebook page behind only the
legend Bill Dance.

In addition to the CBS Sports TV premieres, Lunkerville episodes will be rebroadcasted on World
Fishing Network (WFN) five times the same week during the summer, and teased heavily on Facebook
Watch. Come Fall/Winter, the entire season will be available on Amazon Prime Video.

About Lunkerville
When Indie film director Michael de Avila hooked his passion for story telling onto his love of fishing, he
spawned the documentary fishing series Lunkerville. For 15 years, host "Mike D" has been casting his
line at everyday, recreational anglers, traveling to their secret spots, sharing their special techniques and
making them the expert stars of the day. In his signature laid-back manner, he reels in the camaraderie,
the fun and the fish. There's never a dull moment on Lunkerville: the show that features real people and
real fish stories. Lunkerville also hosts one of the most popular Facebook social media pages for an
outdoors TV show. With over half-a-million fan followers, guests are chosen directly from the Facebook
group. For more information on the show, visit
