Geo Beach hosts new series on the History Channel

Geo Beach, perhaps best known for his column, hosts the new weekly series "Tougher in Alaska with Geo Beach" on the History channel, airing nationally on Thursdays at 10 p.m. ET/PT.

Beach, a former logger, firefighter and commercial fisherman, also narrates each hour-long episode and receives credit for additional writing and cameras.

During his journalism career, Beach has won both the Alaska Press Club's award for best radio commentaries for his NPR commentaries and the Suzan Nightingale Best Columnist Award for Large Publications for his "Top o' the Planet" columns in the Anchorage Daily News.

"Beach demonstrates an exhaustive knowledge and understanding of Alaska," says former Los Angeles Times and NPR reporter Bill Drummond, a professor at the School of Journalism at University of California - Berkeley.
