Franchi to Title Sponsor Upcoming Season of NRA All Access
FAIRFAX, Va. – The National Rifle Association proudly announces Franchi as the title sponsor of its hit TV show NRA All Access. The show’s fifth season, featuring new host Theresa Vail, a 2014 Miss America top ten finalist, a Sergeant in the Kansas Army National Guard and an avid outdoorswoman, premieres on Outdoor Channel on Wednesday, December 30 at 6:30 p.m. EST.
“The National Rifle Association is the world leader in developing programs that promote shooting sports and firearm safety,” said Executive Director of NRA General Operations, Kyle Weaver. “Through NRA All Access, we’re able to share incredible stories about the impact our programs have and the everyday people who do their part to continue our country’s rich shooting traditions.”
NRA All Access highlights the NRA’s recreational and educational programs that reinforce America’s rich firearms heritage as well as the organization’s relationships with leading members of the sporting community. In the upcoming season viewers will meet avid outdoorsman and football legend Jim Kelly, learn how the 2016 election can impact our future, join Theresa on hunts in Italy and Cuba, experience the NRA World Shooting Championship, and meet West Coast Choppers founder Jesse James, pro golfer Boo Weekley, and more.
“NRA All Access’ focus on hunting, competitive shooting, and other aspects of the sporting lifestyle is as versatile as the interests of the NRA’s five million loyal members. That kind of versatility is a hallmark of Franchi shotguns,” said Tom Kaleta, VP of Marketing for Franchi in the United States. “With NRA All Access host Theresa Vail quickly becoming the face of Franchi, this partnership works on many levels to showcase our brand’s quality and accessibility while supporting the NRA in its fight to defend 2nd Amendment rights.”
