Adventurous New Host for incredibleMAINE TV ShowIf two heads are better than one, it might follow that two hosts are better than one.
That’s what viewers may be saying about incredibleMAINE, the Emmy nominated series on the Maine Public Broadcasting Network, when Alan Bradstreet premiered as new host of the show on November 12th.
Original Host LC Van Savage retired from new production after the 2010 season. Her legacy of 46 incredibleMAINE shows will continue to air in rotation with new shows featuring Alan Bradstreet.
Bradstreet first appeared on November 12th in a show about the Rangeley Lakes. Over the next few months, incredibleMAINE shows with Bradstreet will explore the Maine Wildlife Park, the Unknown Acadia, a South Paris Tourmaline Mine and sculptor Andreas Von Huene.
Bradstreet has spent much of his life as a woodworker, best known for his scroll sawn wooden bookmarks available in many retail locations throughout the state. “After producing in excess of 600,000 bookmarks, I was ready for something new to complement my day job,” said Bradstreet. “Fate stepped in when LC retired, and my willingness to try just about anything made me a perfect fit for the job as host.”
incredibleMAINE is independently produced by Marilyn Taylor and directed by Dave Wilkinson.
The husband and wife team created the show in 2007 with host LC Van Savage.
incredibleMAINE has been airing since then in its weekly MPBN time slot at 10:30 Saturday mornings.
The show has won numerous Telly Awards and Director Wilkinson has twice been nominated for Emmy Awards.
