The Unconventional Traveler is a thirty-minute television series that airs every Tuesday night at 9 P.M. on Cablevision in southern Connecticut.
Daryl Hawk is the former host and producer of the Unconventional Traveler, where weekly, he had a lively discussion with some of the worlds leading explorers, adventure travelers, travel photographers and filmmakers. He has also done numerous shows with tour operators and board of tourism directors. The goal of each show is to tell a story about a certain destination or travel organization and how an individual can approach travel in a more unconventional way. Many shows have been done on important expeditions as well as documentaries on renowned explorers. Travel themes with an emphasis on exploration, adventure, history, nature, photography and recreation are all good examples of interesting television show ideas.
All shows are taped at the Cablevision studio in Norwalk, Connecticut or at Hawk’s studio in Wilton, Connecticut, which has state of the art facilities and equipment. We can also tape shows at the guest’s house or at an agreed upon location. Hawk Productions has a dedicated crew that has produced over 100 shows in the last ten years. The feedback we get from our viewing audience each week is astounding!
The Unconventional Traveler reaches over 100,000 households and businesses in affluent Fairfield County, Connecticut. 82% of these people travel at least once every year. Viewers encompass every ethnic, racial and political group reflecting the diversity and character of southern Connecticut.
The Unconventional Traveler television shows typically highlight 100 – 160 still images (digital photos or color slides) which the guest/organization supplies to Hawk Productions normally two weeks prior to the taping of the show. While the pictures are being shown on our studio screen for a twenty minute portion of the segment, the guest gives anecdotes about the specific geographical area we are looking at or about the organization in general and what makes it so unique and appealing to the traveler.
The Unconventional Traveler is an exciting, inspirational and visually stimulating show that appeals to people who are looking for more meaningful and interesting ways to travel!
