DENVER– Outdoor Sportsman Group (OSG), the premier media and entertainment company for outdoor adventure enthusiasts, is pleased to announce its continued dominance and growth on the linear networks, streaming with MyOutdoorTV and in its publishing arm, within the fishing enthusiast market in the United States.

According to MRI*, OSG boasts an impressive 252 index for its Game & Fish/In-Fisherman/OSG Networks male audience fishing participants. Those numbers are based upon those who’ve gone saltwater fishing, fly fishing, and/or freshwater fishing in the last 12 months, and/or participated in a domestic fishing vacation trip.

This statistic underscores OSG’s unparalleled reach and influence over 54.5 million fishing enthusiasts nationwide.

Additionally, OSG's print publications (Game & Fish/In Fisherman) have seen phenomenal year-over-year growth, with a remarkable increase of 431,000 readers, equating to a 12 percent surge in audience numbers as confirmed by MRI.

This data reaffirms OSG’s commitment to delivering best-in-class fishing content across print, digital, linear and streaming that resonates with anglers,” shared Derek Sevcik, EVP Operations at Outdoor Sportsman Group.

Fishing content also remains a top favorite among subscribers of MyOutdoorTV (MOTV), OSG’s leading subscription streaming platform, with nearly 40 percent (39.7 percent) of total minutes consumed dedicated to fishing shows. Our goal is to elevate the outdoor viewing experience, and we are motivated that our audience shares our passion for fishing,” said Derek.
