Tampa, Fla. (December 20, 2019) – NAUI is proud to sign on as the title sponsor for a new Scuba Diving and Spear Fishing show called “Spear Life,” which will air exclusively on the Outdoor Channel and the World Fishing Network in the United States.
“With the popularity of spearfishing on the rise, NAUI thought this was the right time to partner with Jon Brunson and his team for the show,” NAUI’s CEO Rick Lorimor said. “What got our attention with the show is not just the spearfishing, it’s the opportunity to showcase scuba diving and all the opportunities there are to explore the ocean.”
Spear Life will air on the Outdoor Channel and The World Fishing Network throughout 2020 with the first show airing on Monday, December 30, at 5 p.m. Spear Life will air five days a week through the first and second quarters of 2020 on the Outdoor Channel. The scheduled airings on the World Fishing Network are still being finalized.
The show will feature Brunson and his two best friends, Coby Treasure and Freediving legend Gary Zumwalt on their diving adventures. The trio will chase game fish, dive historic wrecks and explore the world’s oceans.
On the partnership with NAUI, Brunson said, “We’re excited to welcome NAUI Worldwide as the title sponsor of The Outdoor Channel Original Series, Spear Life. We’re also proud to be NAUI certified divers and thrilled to partner with them in this first-of-its-kind, dive show. After years of being a NAUI affiliated dive shop customer, it only makes sense for us to join forces to bring the adventure and enjoyment of the diving lifestyle, coupled with the ‘Dive Safety Through Education’ mantra of NAUI, to the millions of viewers throughout the world.”
Lorimor added, “NAUI’s mission has always been to bring safe diving practices and environmental awareness to a large audience of divers and professionals regardless of their in-water activities. We are very happy that the show producers, who are NAUI certified divers reached out to us, to be able to convey this important message and consult with them on enforcing this important mission in their future episodes.”
