National Fisherman

ELLSWORTH, Maine — Anybody familiar with the commercial fishing industry, especially Maine's iconic lobster fishery, will know that it doesn't fit into a typical 9-to-5 schedule.

So it most likely will not come as a surprise to most Mainers to learn that, when producers and television crews from Headline News set out last summer to profile "individuals and communities who have found inventive and surprising ways to address today's challenges by applying the lessons of American pioneers," that offshore island fishermen and their families would be featured on the show.

The new show is called "American Journey" and is being hosted by Ty Pennington, former host of "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" on ABC. The first episode of the half-hour show, which features the Maine lobstermen, is set to air on HLN at 8 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 12, and will air again at the same time the following day, Sunday, Jan. 13.
