Columbia Sportswear Company a global leader in the active outdoor apparel and footwear industries, and Discovery Channel, premier provider of real-world entertainment, announced a media partnership agreement for 2008 that includes Columbia Sportswear sponsorship of two U.S. programs, a media buy on the network, and a co-branded online advertising component.

As part of the sponsorship program, Columbia Sportswear will be the official outfitter of two Discovery Channel programs - the wildly popular "Survivorman," hosted by Les Stroud, and a new series debuting August 18, starring Josh Bernstein.

"Into The Unknown with Josh Bernstein" will focus on subjects ranging from anthropology, archaeology and adventure to environmental issues.

With 1.5 billion cumulative subscribers throughout 170 countries, the Discovery Channel ranks in the top five U.S. ad-supported cable networks among P18-49 and M18-49.

"Discovery Channel programming complements our positioning as an outdoor brand and provides on-air exposure that highlights the benefits of our products," said Tim Boyle, president and chief executive officer of Columbia Sportswear Company.

"What's more, the Discovery Channel delivers a high index of active, outdoor-minded adults, a perfect match for the Columbia brand."

"We are pleased to partner with Columbia Sportswear and create a collaboration with a brand whose strong commitment to quality and value mirrors ours," said Joe Abruzzese, president of advertising sales, Discovery Communications.

"Discovery's worldwide reach, coupled with Columbia's worldwide appeal, is a perfect match to further encourage an appreciation for our planet and its many wonders."

"My new series takes me to some of the most remote, inhospitable places on the planet," said Bernstein. "I'm grateful that Columbia is providing high- performance clothing that is up to the challenges that I face on my expeditions."

"Whether it be arctic, extreme heat or tropical conditions, being outfitted by a company that understands the elements is key when battling nature's toughest settings," said Stroud. "Columbia apparel's versatility will serve me well in my various quests for survival."
