Kentucky Afield Television

Kentucky Afield is the longest continuously-running outdoors television show in the nation. First airing in 1953, it is one of the very oldest television shows still airing on any subject. Our research tells us it ranks 4th. Holding the record for longevity is Meet the Press (November 6, 1946), followed by the Today Show (January 14, 1952). That’s good company!

Explore Kentucky from the comfort of your easy chair with Kentucky Afield. The show about wildlife, hunting, fishing, and fun in Kentucky’s outdoors.

Each week, we get mud on our boots in a different part of the state. It could be hunting deer, wild turkey at Peabody WMA or stalking elk in coal country. You may spot us in your sights hunting geese in the back water sloughs of Henderson or Ballard County or boating to the bass on Lake Cumberland. No matter where the woods and waters take us, you’ll always find us on KETWe are on Saturdays at 8:30 p.m. EST/7:30 p.m. CST and repeats Sundays at 4:30 p.m. EST/3:30 p.m. CST on KET 1.
