Florida marine retailer acquires radio show

Nautical Ventures Group has acquired the rights to the Weekly Fisherman Show, a popular southern Florida radio show.

“I’ve been a steady listener of the show and have witnessed its listening audience grow over the years,” said Nautical Ventures CEO Roger Moore. “Simply put, it’s the go-to show for fishermen who want the intel on what’s biting and where they’re biting from Stuart to the Keys.”

The show’s 2-hour format consists of live call-ins by celebrity captains who share their local fishing knowledge on what should be biting for the next several days and how to catch those fish. Between captains, listeners call in to quiz the hosts on up-to-the-minute tips, techniques, and hot spots.

The show has aired for 10 years, hosted by radio DJ Eric Brandon and Sun Sentinel Outdoors Writer Steve Waters.

“We have plans to expand the show to include fishing experts from other platforms, experts in related fields, and guest speakers from the industry – all designed to entertain, engage and educate our listening audience,” Brandon said.

The inaugural show is slated for Saturday, Jan. 16, on Miami's 940 WINZ.
