Sarah Palin to Host Show on Sportsman Channel

THR Staff

Sarah Palin is making another play for TV stardom. The Fox News contributor and former vice presidential candidate will host a new show on Sportsman Channel.

Dubbing her the "First Lady of the Outdoors" in a Monday release, the cable channel is slotting Amazing America With Sarah Palin in April 2014. It's described as an "anthology of stories that explore some of the most original, interesting – and sometimes inspiring – people, places and pastimes connected to America’s outdoors lifestyle."

"I'm excited to help shine a light on all the great American sportsmen and women in the country who live the outdoors lifestyle," said Palin. "Sportsman Channel is the leader in their industry and I am thrilled to be partnering with them on this show."

An outdoors enthusiast and perhaps the most famous Alaskan, the project is not a stretch for Palin -- but it is her most niche TV outing to date. She previously starred in Sarah Palin's Alaska for TLC back in 2010. The show was canceled after one season.

Palin, who briefly exited her role on Fox News in late 2012 only to return as a contributor in June 2013, has been looking for additional opportunities. Sources tell The Hollywood Reporter she's been exploring an Internet subscription model, much like Glenn Beck's TheBlaze, but TV has been a priority.
