15 Current TV Programs About Alaska;All Because of Governor Palin



The first major foray was of course Governor Palin's groundbreaking television show; 

"Five million viewers tuned in for the premiere episode, a record for TLC"






Here's today's "Discovery Channel" listings;
"The Last Alaskans Holiday Special"
"Ice Truckers in Alaska"
"Alaskan Bush People"
"The Last Alaskans Holiday Special" (repeated).
"Bering Sea Gold"
"Fishing Monsters In Alaska"
Is there anyone in Alaska that is not featured in a TV show?

I don't doubt for a second that hardly any of the above would be world-wide if it had not been for Sarah Palin who brought Alaska massive publicity with her 2008 VP run and of course most especially her 'for the ages" convention speech.

The multi-millions of dollars pumped into the Alaskan economy via the employment created from these television shows and ensuing tourism is incalculable.

Here's further information on Alaska on TV from a local 
"Ma. G"

"And that's just the Discovery Channel!
I am presently tuned in to Alaska: the Last Frontier, featuring the ever resourceful and independent Kilcher Family.
On Nat Geo and other channels are also;

Life Below Zero, 
Railroad Alaska, 
Buying Alaska,
Living Alaska, 
Alaska State Troopers, 
Edge of Alaska, 
one about Marty Rainy and his kids helping Alaska homesteaders, 
and one about the mega machines that keep Alaska going. 

And these are just the ones I can think of off the top of my head. There are at least three more shows the titles of which I can't recall at the moment.
America has discovered Alaska. : )
I completely agree the credit goes entirely to Sally Heath's sweet baby girl, Governor Sarah Louise."
