NEW YORK — Starting Saturday, April 23, a monthly series called “Discover Better Boating” will run on YNN (Your News Now) in New York.
Once a month, boating industry professionals will offer information and tips on topics including preparing your boat for the boating season, boating safety, the impact of ethanol fuel on your boat, and getting better gas efficiency in a tight economy.
The television outreach, a partnership of New York Sea Grant with the Boating Industries Association of Upstate New York (BIA) and Your News Now, has evolved from the Discover Clean & Safe Boating campaign begun by New York Sea Grant and BIA in 2008.
YNN, based in Syracuse, N.Y., is one of thirteen 24-hour local news channels owned and operated by Time Warner Cable nationwide. The station is available to nearly 600,000 cable subscribers across a 25-county, 15,000 square mile area.
New York Sea Grant Coastal Recreation and Tourism Specialist Dave White will introduce the monthly “Discover Better Boating” segments.
“We are pleased to have the broad public reach provided by Your News Now to help educate boaters about how to enjoy New York’s waters cleanly, safely and in an environmentally friendly way,” White said in a release.
After the April 23rd debut, the Discover Better Boating segments will run on YNN stations every third Saturday through October.
