Day 1 of the Bassmaster Classic will debut on Sunday, April 5 at 11 a.m. ET on ESPN2. The show sets the stage for a three-day competition as North Carolina pro Cherry weighs in five big bass totaling 29 pounds, 3 ounces and takes a commanding lead despite injuring his arm during competition.
“The challenge in covering an event like the Classic, which has already been watched on Bassmaster LIVE or followed on Bassmaster.com and other media by millions of people, is making it fresh and compelling,” said Bruce Akin, B.A.S.S. CEO. “Our talented team produced a series of shows worthy of the historic 50th Bassmaster Classic.”
Coverage of Day 2 of the Classic, a two-hour show, will begin at 10 a.m. Sunday, April 12, and the Championship Sunday episode, also two hours, will air at 10 a.m. Sunday, April 19, both on ESPN2. These and other episodes of The Bassmasters will be re-aired on ESPN2 and ESPN Classic, as well as on The Pursuit Channel.
