PITTSBURGH– Adventuradio (http://adventuradio.com) will air its premier broadcast on Clear Channel’s FM News Talk 104.7 on February 5. Adventuradio is a new talk show dedicated to the pursuit of outdoor adventures and recreation in Pennsylvania, Ohio, and West Virginia. The show and topics have national appeal and the broadcasts will be available to stream online. Each week hosts Ron Gdovic and Tom Kane focus on outdoor sports and recreation opportunities available to men, women, and families within a day’s drive of Pittsburgh. Coverage includes on-the-scene broadcasts and participation in hunting, fishing, rowing, hiking, kayaking, canoeing, skiing, snowboarding, running, motorcycling, boating, ATV riding, and all manners of competitive recreational activities including running, biking, and triathlons.
Adventuradio’s first guest is Les Stroud, internationally acclaimed filmmaker and outdoor adventurer best known as star of the six-time Gemini nominated hit TV series Survivorman (OLN Canada, the Science Channel US, Discovery Channel International, City TV (Rogers) Canada). Les Stroud is the only producer in the history of television to produce an internationally broadcast series entirely written, videotaped and hosted alone. Stroud is credited with starting a new genre of television known as Survival TV. Survivorman became the highest-rated show in the history of both OLN Canada and the Science Channel US and among the most popular and highest-rated shows on Discovery Channel US.
With esteemed guests each week, Adventuradio is light and informative, catering to a broad audience of men and women who squeeze outdoor adventures into their over-scheduled lives whenever possible. “Our target audience is widely overlooked by outdoor shows, magazines, and local sports coverage,” says Ron Gdovic. “Most of us do not own $80,000 fishing boats, do not regularly book safaris in Africa, and will likely not qualify to run the Ironman in Hawaii. However, we are enthusiastic participants in all manners of adventure sports when the occasion arises.” “This is their show,” according to Tom Kane, speaking from their mobile studio aboard a boat on the Allegheny River. “Our listeners and sponsors are passionate about our natural amenities and Adventuradio brings it all together for them.”
The hosts themselves are suburbanites active and versed in the outdoor adventure and recreation scene. Gdovic is a business professional yet competes in triathlons and participates in many sports, including motorsports. He recently performed motorcycle stunts in the feature film “The Next Three Days” starring Russell Crowe and has appeared on Mythbusters on the Discovery Channel. Kane is an outdoor enthusiast who jokes that he is “one adventure away from tearing another knee.” He has appeared on major network and cable affiliates including FOX News, CNN, MSNBC, and has been featured on the Dr. Phil show in Hollywood, California.
Adventuradio is broadcast on Clear Channel’s FM News Talk 104.7 every Saturday afternoon at 5:00 PM EST. For more information, news, and video visit http://adventuradio.com or contact Ron Gdovic at (412) 447-1766.
