Sarah Palin, outdoorswoman, is returning to TV. The Sportsman Channel today announced it has hired Sarah Palin to be host of a weekly outdoors-oriented program that will celebrate the "red, wild and blue" lifestyle. Amazing America will debut next April, via a network that reaches some 32 million homes (that's less than one-third of American households with television). Palin's show will include a series of stories about personalities and activities related to hunting, fishing, and shooting.
"The network showcases a lifestyle that I love and celebrate every day and it's great to be a part of their team," Palin said in a statement provided by the network. The Sportsman Channel has ordered 12 episodes of the series to start. Palin was previously host of a short-lived series about her home state, Sarah Palin's Alaska, that ran on the TLC network. This actually isn't the only Sarah Palin TV news making headlines today: Numerous outlets are breathlessly reporting that she met some Duck Dynasty stars in Monroe, Louisiana, on Saturday during her book tour; Todd apparently got in on the fun via FaceTime.
