Sportsman Channel has announced that Sarah Palin will host their upcoming series "Amazing America" premiering on April 14th. Looks like Mama Grizzly has been keeping the mother of all secrets since there has not been even one tiny leak on this exciting development.
Gov. Palin posted a Facebook update shortly after Sportsman Channel broke the news.
It's soon time to get your "Red, Wild and Blue" on, America! I am ecstatic to get to share more of this great country with you, and I have exciting news to share!
We've been blessed with opportunities to travel all across America and experience inspiration! We've seen some wild places, met some wild people, and "amazing" is one word that comes to mind wherever the road takes us. It’s your turn to be inspired! So I am thrilled to work with Sportsman Channel on the new TV series called "Amazing America with Sarah Palin" because it lets me highlight the real stories that make America truly amazing.
Like us, there are millions of men, women and families who embrace the great outdoors and thrive on the natural beauty, resources and diverse activity it offers. A main reason I wanted to join Sportsman Channel is their passion and dedication to our active lifestyle. And they believe everyone has a little wild inside. This series lets us help everyone find their wild in "Red, Wild and Blue America!"

The Sportsman Channel website has the following to say about "Amazing America":
Amazing America with Sarah Palin explores and experiences the coolest and most original people, places, businesses, and gadgets that appeal to Red, Wild and Blue America. Former Governor Sarah Palin takes viewers into the life of those living the American dream.
Whether it is celebrities living the sportsman dream or equally enthusiastic everymen, Mrs. Palin will take us nationwide to find the people and places that share and reflect her passion for what makes our country amazing.
Petersen's Hunting offers this "first look" commentary on "Amazing America" but here's a sneak peek of what to expect. (Note: you must scroll down past the ad to see the article.)
"The show really explores and experiences an anthology of stories about the most original people, places and businesses that really appeal to Red, Wild & Blue America, that great American spirit about the great outdoors,” said Marc Fein, EVP of Programming and Production at Sportsman Channel. “… The show is really about shining a light on these folks that reflect [Palin’s] passion for what makes the outdoors and our country amazing.”
The segments aren’t just about hunting, shooting and fishing, however.
“It will be a variety of different types of stories. It could be about amazing craftsmen in action in our states, about American heroes and first responders, how they train when called into action,” Fein said. “We’ll have some celebrities, visiting some celebrities at ranches and farms, and just some really good stories of people living the American dream in our states—who went from nothing, created a product with great ingenuity and built their dream, which is building a dream cabin.” More
