Waypoint TV has announced the addition of My World with Mike Iaconelli to the Waypoint TV channel, airing Nov. 27 at 9:30 p.m. ET. Waypoint TV cited Iaconelli’s charisma and skill, combined with pro-athlete special guests, as reasons this is a must-watch series.
My World brings a unique concept to the outdoor space as Ike takes on the rigors of succeeding at other sports at the highest levels. He embarks on entirely new adventures with pro athletes, including Super Bowl champion Lane Johnson, PBR athlete Keyshawn Whitehorse, NASCAR driver Martin Truex Jr., UFC legend Jim Miller, LPGA golfer Marina Alex, and professional bowler Kyle Troup. Ike also brings these athletes into his world as a professional bass fisherman and shows them the ropes during some unforgettable fishing challenges.
This series highlights the passion that Ike has for his craft and his willingness to seek adventure in the unfamiliar and extremely physical worlds of other professional athletes. While the sports may be different, the discipline and dedication required to succeed is a priority for all. Iaconelli, the New Jersey native and fan favorite professional angler, has been fishing professionally for more than 20 years. His impressive fishing resume consists of being the only angler to ever win the Bassmaster Classic, Bassmaster Angler of the Year, and B.A.S.S. Federation Nation Championship, along with being an on-screen and on-mic personality. His passion for the sport of fishing and his enthusiasm to share his knowledge make My World with Mike Iaconelli a feel-good, exciting, and bingeworthy series.
“Prepare for some highly entertaining and exciting moments while watching My World with Mike Iaconelli,” said Graig Hale, Waypoint TV’s director of business development. “Mike is an accomplished angler and celebrated host who turns viewers into fans almost immediately. His energetic personality keeps us engaged and hungry for the next scene while we ride along with Mike and his guests. We are pleased to offer these episodes to our viewers and look forward to the smiles and laughter that will certainly follow.”
“I’m really pumped to introduce this show and this amazing team of professional athletes to Waypoint TV,” said Iaconelli. “Each one of them brings a passion and unique skill set to their sport just like I bring to the sport of fishing! We’re all fierce competitors, but can they fish? Can I hold my own in their sport? My World with Mike Iaconelli was so much fun to film and I hope everyone loves it as much as I do!”
