The Oklahoma travel show featuring Brad Mathison and Rex Brown discovering Oklahoma by motorcycle will soon be available every weekend to viewers in 19 states via the TUFF-TV network.
The show will present a unique perspective on Oklahoma to viewers in several major metropolitan markets- including Atlanta, Seattle, Los Angeles and Dallas. KSBI-TV in Oklahoma City is an affiliate of the TUFF-TV network.
Each half-hour episode of Two Wheel Oklahoma documents interesting places and historic sites on a scenic Oklahoma highway. Along the way the hosts visit local landmarks, museums, unique buildings and local eateries. The lush HD videography will be enjoyed by anyone who likes to travel, and interviews with local characters and the colorful commentary of Brad and Rex adds a touch of ‘you were there’ to the stories.
The locally produced program garnered a tremendous grassroots following when it debuted in the Fall of 2009 on a local Tulsa station, then in April 2010 on OETA. Since then the show has been syndicated to a number of public stations as well as Sky TV in Europe. Currently subscribers to Cox Cable in Tulsa and Oklahoma City can enjoy the show three times a week on Channel 3/HD 703. And beginning in May 2012 the program will air on TUFF-TV affiliates across the U.S. on Saturdays at 10:30 AM CST and Sundays at 11:30 AM CST.
Destinations featured in the first season of Two Wheel Oklahoma include a civil war-era fort, the diner that inspired a character in the movie Cars, a Frank Lloyd Wright skyscraper and an airplane hangar that became an art museum. Foodies will enjoy the local eateries the pair seek out on each of their adventures. Future plans call for eventually expanding their scope to include destinations all over the U.S.
“The format is different than most travel shows,” explains producer and co-host, Brad Mathison. “Instead of being in a museum then magically popping up in a diner, we actually travel the route. It’s not about covering long distances. The show is all about our travels, and our travels are all about exploring the road and the towns and interacting with the people we meet.”
More information on the show, a list of TUFF-TV affiliates, DVDs and official wearables are available on the Two Wheel Oklahoma website at twowheeloklahoma.com.
