B.A.S.S. announced today that Dave Mercer, who replaced Keith Alan as Bassmaster Elite Series emcee this year, will remain in that position through 2013.
“There really are no words to express how excited I am about this opportunity," he said. "This past season was one of the most rewarding and exhilarating experiences of my career.
"Not only did I have the opportunity to work with many of my heroes, I quickly learned that the Bassmaster Elite Series pros are not just elite because of what they do on the water. The entire group of anglers, tournament staff, television crew and event sponsors could not have been more welcoming, accommodating, supportive and most importantly, fun to work with."
Said B.A.S.S. owner Jerry McKinnis: “Dave Mercer did a great job at the Bassmaster Classic and Elite Series events for our anglers, sponsors and our fans. "We are excited that he will be with B.A.S.S. in the coming years.”
