A LITTLE ABOUT US

Image of JM Outdoors Building Foyer.

In 1980 we forged a monumental partnership with a fledgling cable network in Bristol, Connecticut. Back then, ESPN was still planning on movies for half the day and sports for the other half. Needless to say, things have worked out for all of us. We produced the first outdoor show ever on ESPN - “The Fishin’ Hole” with Jerry McKinnis. While "The Fishin' Hole" aired on local and national networks for more than 44 years - including 27 years on ESPN - the company has branched out with an identity that is much larger than a single TV show. With one of the largest studios and production facilities in the Mid-South, JM produces an array of television shows including “The Bassmaster Elite Series,” “Spanish Fly,” “Zona’s Awesome Fishing Show,” Madfin Shark Series, Basmaster College Series, STIHL Timbersports and many more.


Other than operating as an outdoor television company, JM also creates, maintains and produces content for websites.


We specialize in Content Development, Remote Production, Studio Production, Post Production, Strategic Consulting, Motion Graphics, Sales, Marketing and Public Relations. The company’s reputation is built on an uncompromising commitment to finding and telling great stories. We have over thirty years of experience producing live and edited programming in a variety of venues and formats. JM Associates delivers a remarkable 70 hours per year of programming to national television networks. JM projects have won Emmy Awards (ESPN Great Outdoor Games, 2004) and Emmy Award nominations (2009 Bassmaster Classic) for same day and quick turnaround (7 days or less) productions.


JM has also produced programming for the following networks: The Weather Channel, Nat Geo Wild, Outdoor Channel, Versus, ESPN, Tuff TV, ESPN2, ABC
Jerry McKinnis has produced more outdoor programming than anyone, especially for ESPN.
