Alabama Bass Trail Tournament Series to Air on Fox Sports Southeast in 2016

Decatur, Ala. (October 28, 2015) – The Alabama Bass Trail will appear on network television next year when its
Tournament Series airs on Fox Sports Southeast (FSS). Thirteen episodes and 65 re-airs will be televised on
Sunday mornings.
FSS will televise 13 original 30-minute episodes to 10 million homes on Sunday mornings at 8 a.m. in the second
half of 2016, officials said. Each show will feature a different tournament location. Footage will be taken on the
water, during takeoffs and weigh-ins and will also include in-depth interviews with the tournament winners.

“Being able to televise the Alabama Bass Trail Tournament Series on Fox Sports Southeast will allow us to feature our lakes, anglers and sponsors on a huge stage for outdoorsmen,” said Alabama Bass Trail Program Director Kay Donaldson. “The exposure will not only be a bonus for the fishing industry in general, but will benefit the state of Alabama.”

While the episodes take viewers inside the boats of the competitors as they navigate the lakes of Alabama, a
production crew will film local eateries and attractions in the host city of each tournament location.

television will encourage even more anglers to come to Alabama and fish our lakes and rivers. This is a great way
to bring economic impact to rural areas all over the state,” said Lee Sentell, director of the Alabama Tourism
