Glenwood, AL – Nielsen audience reporting from June 2018 continues to endorse Pursuit Channel as the category’s value leader in big-audience influence with its verification of 6,896,007 million unique viewers* for that month.
“Allowing for a world of home-improvement projects, the onset of warm-weather and the family vacationing associated with the longer evenings of summertime, historically, April through June is not noted for particularly strong television viewership,” said Rusty Faulk, CEO of Pursuit Channel. “And that’s true across the entire television spectrum, from Fox News to ESPN to Pursuit Channel.
“However, our numbers broke well above expectation, surprisingly high for a period that sees much of our programming in its encore phase. On average, our households tuned in to** Pursuit Channel nine times during the month, and on average, viewed more than 2.5 hours ***of content.
“It was an outstanding performance by Pursuit for the month, in the category, and the terrific content – produced by some of outdoors’ best talent – deserves all the credit for this progression to greater and greater success,” Faulk concluded. Among the network’s most watched series in June were: Lindner’s Angling Edge, Americana Outdoors, Elusive Wildlife, The Hitmen, Crappie Masters, The Outdoor Option, Winchester & Drury’s Natural Born Killers, Hobie Outdoors, Hank Parker, The High Road and Cabela’s Fisherman’s Handbook.
