New Preview and Super Six Shows Highlight Bassmaster Classic Viewing Options

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — After 4.3 million viewers enjoyed live coverage of the Academy Sports + Outdoors Bassmaster Classic presented by Toyota on FOX, FS1 and the FOX Sports platforms in 2022, enthusiastic fans will have even more opportunities to catch Classic action this year.

Before anglers take to the Tennessee River for competition March 24-26, the Classic LIVE Preview show on Wednesday, March 22 will feature predictions, conditions and hits from the lake.

Bassmaster LIVE kicks off tournament coverage Friday morning at 8 a.m. ET on, Tubi and the FOX Sports digital platforms. FS1 will broadcast live with the tournament leaders on Saturday and Sunday mornings before afternoon action from Championship Sunday picks up on FOX.

“When every catch can mean the difference between bringing home the sport’s biggest prize or falling down the leaderboard, Championship Sunday at the Bassmaster Classic can be full of emotional and heartbreaking moments,” said B.A.S.S. CEO Chase Anderson. “We’re so excited to bring Bassmaster LIVE to the largest possible audience by broadcasting on FOX in the hours leading up to the final weigh-in. Our FOX Sports partnership has allowed us to reach new fans over the past two seasons. And whether they are already a fishing fan or not, the passion and drama of the Classic are sure to hook viewers.”

Later Sunday night, a special Super Six highlight show will recap the Classic’s iconic winning moments.

While the Bassmaster LIVE team covers the leaders on FOX and FS1, viewers can also join Bass Fishing Hall of Fame journalist Steve Bowman, a stable of Elite Series anglers and fishing legends — including Rick Clunn, Bill Dance, Larry Nixon and Hank Parker — for LIVE Mix streaming on

Daily weigh-in festivities can be streamed on beginning at 3:30 p.m.
