OLN broadcasts what makes the most money for them. There are a ton of good ol' boys all around this country that spend a lot of time in front of the tube watching hunting and fishing shows, even during their season of choice. Infomercials are just pure moneymakers for the network. No production costs, no syndication fees...
I appreciate OLN's broadcasts of the less covered sports, including skiing and ski racing. You may not appreciate bullriding, but I bet there are people who are overjoyed that their sport is finally getting some air time.
If you like seeing skiing programming on OLN, go to their website (www.olntv.com
) and drop them a note saying you'd like to see more of it. I personally think their WC coverage is light years ahead of where it was last season.
