Maine Lobster Fishermen Featured on New HLN Show this Saturday Night! [VIDEO]
The Headline News Network is producing a new show called “American Journey”! Ty Pennington, the former host of ABC TV’s “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” is the host. But what really unique is that the first episode will feature lobster fishermen from Maine, and it airs this Saturday night at 8 p.m.
The show will feature people with jobs that don’t fit into the standard “9 to 5″ mold, and we all know that lobster fishermen don’t. They’re out there making a living at all hours of the day and night, they work when the weather is beautiful and when it’s not.
When the headline news team arrived last August to film, there was a more than ample supply of lobster and the price was very low. Canadian fishermen were also blocking truckers from Maine carrying lobster from entering processing plants in that country. So the HLN cameras got an eyeful.
They focused on a couple of fishermen, Jason Joyce from Swan’s Island, and Captain Jack Merrill from Little Cranberry Island. If you miss American Journey this Saturday, they’ll repeat it again Sunday night at 8! HLN is channel 30 on Time Warner Cable, it’s channel 204 on DirecTV and 20
