Watertown, NY- March 11, 2015 WPBS-DT, Watertown, PBS, is pleased to announce Dana Reid as the new host of Season Two Xpedition Outdoors. Twenty-five year old Dana Reid lives in Antwerp, New York with her husband Michael and cats, Jaaba and K2B2. She was raised in Alberta, Canada, east of the Rocky Mountains in a small town outside of Calgary where she spent time fishing, camping and travelling with her family when she was young. In 2011, Dana obtained a Paramedic degree and a degree in Allied Health and began working as a Paramedic full time in upstate New York. Currently, she holds full and part time employment, helps with the Paramedic program at the local college, volunteers at her local ambulance service and is a full time student. Even with her busy schedule, she tries to make time for things she enjoys: sports, working out in the gym, and running obstacle courses throughout the northeastern United States.
Dana will host Season Two of Xpedition Outdoors, a 6-part local adventure series, filmed in high-definition. This adventure series highlights the beauty and abundance of natural resources found in the North Country and Canada.
