Half-hour weekend first-run syndicated half-hour “Raw Travel,” from AIM Tell-A-Vision, is a firm “go” for season five (in 2017-18) in 93 percent of the country. Showcasing socially and environmentally aware travel, “Raw Travel” incorporates eco-tourism, adventure sports, volun-tourism (giving back), indie music, authentic culture and more. For season five, the producers plan to celebrate the season and 100th episode by offering viewers an opportunity to win free trips, clothing, travel gear and more in a themed “Season 5 Thank You Giveaway.”
“Five years is a milestone most TV series never achieve. To still have so much momentum at this stage, is truly remarkable for an independently produced and distributed show,” said executive producer and host, Robert G. Rose. “I’m gratified and thankful for the support we’ve received from our affiliates and business associates, but especially from our growing legion of viewers, now from all corners of the globe.”
In addition to its domestic growth, “Raw Travel” continues to expand its international footprint on major networks in territories in Asia (National Geographic People, Amazon, etc.), Europe (Fox, RTL, etc.) and Africa. “Raw Travel” was also added to several In Flight Entertainment (IFE) offerings on airlines such as Air Canada, Virgin America, Aer Lingus, Finnair and more.
