“From our top notch trout fishing to our infinite attractions to explore, New Mexico is no longer a well-kept secret among world-class anglers,” said Governor Bill Richardson. “Mix in history, shopping, unique festivals and a host of cultural activities and you have the makings for an incredible outdoor escape.”

“Field Day TV” is produced by Dan Narsete, outdoor expert, fishing guide and former executive producer and host of the radio show, “The Colorado ESPN Outdoor Show;” and is hosted by Tim Neverett, a veteran of the sports broadcasting business as a studio host and play by play announcer for Fox Sports Network covering the Colorado Rockies, college football and basketball, and most recently, the Olympic Games in Beijing.

In the “Santa Fe episode,” the Governor will be featured fishing in his interview, which took place at Val Kilmer’s Pecos River Ranch. Some of the properties featured in the Santa Fe segment, co-hosted by Jen Hoffman, Deputy Secretary of the New Mexico Tourism Department, include La Fonda on the Plaza, Back at the Ranch, La Boca Restaurant, and Legends Santa Fe. The episode featuring the Governor and New Mexico will be broadcast at least 10 times throughout October, with an estimated viewing audience of 17 million households.

“New Mexico’s recreational pursuits are as diverse as its citizens,” said Michael Cerletti, Secretary of the New Mexico Tourism Department, “and fishing has always been one of the most popular pursuits for children of all ages. We appreciate the Governor’s dedication and involvement in helping us promote New Mexico’s great outdoors to such a large television audience.”
