Jason Puris will no longer produce segments of FLW Outdoors television. Although listed by FLW Outdoors as executive producer of the program, he was one of four producers to work on the show. His final project will be next week's Forrest Wood Cup, after which production of FLW Tour programming will change hands.
Production of the remaining two FLW Tour Opens will fall to other contracted television producers who currently film FLW Outdoors circuits such as College Fishing or the Walleye Tour, according to FLW Outdoors.
FLW Outdoors director of public relations Andie Belfry confirmed Puris' departure and said she spoke with him today.
"Jason is moving on but will be covering the Cup, which will be his final show," Belfry told BassFan. "In talking with Jason, he mentioned he's very proud of his work and happy to have had a great relationship with FLW, but I think he felt like it was time to move on."
When asked about who would produce Tour television segments for the 2012 season and beyond, Belfry said: "I can't speak to that yet. Obviously the Cup is a huge event and we're covered there through working with Jason. I think only time will tell."
Puris, who joined FLW Outdoors in April 2009, is based in New York City. He succeeded David Kiviat.
