NEW YORK (January 18, 2016) – Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump will make a special guest appearance at the Outdoor Sportsman Group Networks’ Outdoor Sportsman Awards on Thursday, January 21 at 7 p.m. PT at The Venetian Theatre in the Venetian Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. The “16th Annual Outdoor Sportsman Awards” show takes place during the Shooting, Hunting and Outdoor Trade Show (SHOT Show) and Conference on January 19-22.
Considered the Emmy Awards® of outdoor lifestyle programming, the Outdoor Sportsman Awards serve as the hallmark event to recognize outstanding programming created by Outdoor Channel and Sportsman Channel talent and production teams during the previous year. The ceremony will feature 17 awards including Fan Favorite Host(s) awards for Outdoor Channel and Sportsman Channel.
"I am honored to attend this event and meet with an important group that supports and shares my position on second amendment rights, are strong conservationists of land, water and wildlife and produce exceptional hunting and fishing shows for American sportsmen and women. My sons, Don Jr. and Eric, are excellent marksmen, avid hunters and anglers, and are also proud members of the NRA - as am I,” said Trump. “I am very strong on the second amendment. Now more than ever, Americans want to feel safe and protected. Taking away our guns and limiting our freedoms is not how we ‘Make America Great Again.’"
“It is a night of celebration and Mr. Trump’s presence is sure to cause a welcome buzz at this year’s Outdoor Sportsman Awards show,” said Jim Liberatore, Outdoor Sportsman Group Networks President and CEO. “We welcome the frontrunner for the Republican presidential nomination and can’t wait to hear the reaction he receives from our enthusiastic audience.”
