Joe Albea had a dream better than two decades ago to broadcast a television show for hunters and fishermen in North Carolina.
That show, Carolina Outdoor Journal, aired on UNC Public Television for 24 years to great acclaim.
Albea’s latest dream has also come true; he’s got all 408 editions of the show ready for download on a COJ app.
“I am glad that we were able to save the whole library of shows,” said Albea, of Winterville, N.C., who lately has been quarterbacking an effort by the N.C. Coastal Fisheries Reform Group to get the state’s sounds and other inshore areas protected from large shrimp-trawling operations.
Shows are divided into high-definition and standard-definintion; plans call for new shows to be produced in the future.
For a small fee, the App is available on smart TVs, including these platforms: Roku, Apple, Google and Amaon Fire, and on smart phones.
According to Albea, the library features 179 freshwater fishing shows, 180 saltwater fishing shows and 49 hunting shows.
