"Fishing University" tapes its television show at Vance County High School.
Students at Vance County High School will be part of an international fishing television show that is set to broadcast beginning in January.
The co-hosts and production crew members of the “Fishing University” television show, broadcast on three different networks including the Outdoor Channel, World Fishing Network and Sportsman Channel, came to visit the Vance County High Vipers as part of a program that will feature Vance County. The program will include fishing at Kerr Lake, as well as a focus on local historical sites and the county’s annual Show, Shine, Shag and Dine Antique Car Show.
The Vance County Tourism Department staff members have been working with the television show crew members on plans for the broadcast.
They wanted to include the visit to the high school, so that the show’s co-hosts, Ray Brazier and Charlie Ingram, could spend time talking with students about the importance of getting a good education and career opportunities in outdoor activities and businesses. State Park Ranger Bryce Fleming and local agriculture expert Paul McKenzie joined them.
Plans call for the show to be broadcast several times on all three networks.
