News & Notes

Outdoor Idaho entered its 40th season on October 13th with a program called “Looking Back and Moving Forward.” This hour-long program commemorates what has made Outdoor Idaho beloved by people of all ages and occupations.

“Outdoor Idaho provides us with a glimpse into the lives of others – farmers, outfitters, hunters, hikers, birders. It’s an education in our land, but also in our people,” said producer Lauren Melink. "In this program we not only recognize Outdoor Idaho but also the state and the landscapes that make our work possible.”

Other programs on the docket include a program on the Bitterroot Mountains, airing in December, and “This is Rodeo,” airing in March. Both programs are an hour in length.
