The TV Show Featuring Ellijay and Carter’s Lake to  Debut Next Month
No video selected.

The Internationally televised, Emmy-nominated television show, Fishing University, that filmed here in the late Fall, will air that episode featuring Ellijay and the surrounding area next month. The show features not only the lake, but local dining, activities and attractions.

Fishing University holds a viewership of more than 139 million households, airing in all 50 states as well as in 51 additional countries. The Gilmer Chamber of Commerce played host to the crew taking them to sites that had the potential to draw in visitors to enjoy what we have to offer here in our area. When the offer to film the show here came, the Chamber viewed it as a strategic marketing opportunity to reach a target audience of potential guests seeking an outdoor travel destination.

Within each 30-minute episode of the show, a 90-second promotional spot will be included. The spots will be created to mirror marketing efforts of the Chamber. Hosts Charlie Ingram and Ray Brazier will also include numerous mentions of their location during each show.

In addition to filming promotional spots and fishing, the hosts and film crew also presented a one-hour program at Ellijay High School and shared with them the importance of attaining an education and the outdoor career options available to them.  The school will also be featured during the show.     

The Gilmer County episode will air 10 times in each quarter all year.
