Mike Iaconelli will debut his live-streamed Internet show, Ike Live!, at 9 p.m. EST on Feb. 10. The format will include interviews with fellow anglers and other guests, critiques of fishing videos, fishing tips, a call-in segment in which Iaconelli will respond to questions and comments, fishing trivia contests and discussions on tournament results, upcoming events, news and other hot topics.
Comedian Ed Bassmaster and pro angler Pete Gluszek, Iaconelli's Bass University co-founder, will be the initial guests.
“This live webcast is a great way for me to stay in touch with fans,” said Iaconelli. “I get Twitter and Facebook posts every day asking for tips and advice, and it’s tough to try and answer them all. With Ike Live!, I can answer some of them and talk to fans directly. This kind of interaction is key and we can have a lot of fun doing it.”
Viewers can log on to www.MikeIaconelli.com and click the Ike Live! menu tab to watch the live-streaming show. Fans who miss the live show can view the video later on the website.
Iaconelli plans to live-stream a show each month, with dates varying around his tournament fishing schedule.
