Major groups committed to the series include ABC O&Os, Fox O&Os, Tribune, Weigel, Cox, Meredith and Sinclair.

"I have worked with Jack for over 20 years, so I know the kind of shows he produces, and this new venture, in high definition, is an exciting development in bringing young people an entertaining and different way to learn about animals from all over the world," said Art Moore, Programming Vice President, WABC-TV.

Also announced recently was a new partnership with Nationwide Insurance, through which the Columbus, Ohio-based company will sponsor both Jack Hanna's Into the Wild and his national speaking tour, "Jack Hanna's Into the Wild LIVE".

"I'm pleased to begin this new relationship with my longtime friends at Nationwide Insurance," said Hanna. "I've spent my whole career as an advocate for animals and conservation. My partnership with Nationwide Insurance is a natural fit because they are advocates too�for their customers, their employees and agents, and for wildlife conservation here in Columbus and beyond.

Nationwide has been a long-time supporter of the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium, dating back to Hanna's early days as zoo director in 1978 and Nationwide's support of the American Bald Eagle Exhibit. This year, Nationwide is supporting the return of polar bears to the Columbus Zoo as a major donor for the new Polar Frontier exhibit. Nationwide Insurance and the Columbus Zoo are partnering again as joint title sponsors of Jack Hanna's Into the Wild.

"For decades, Jack Hanna has been a tireless ambassador for animal conservation and the Columbus Zoo," said Jim Lyski, chief marketing officer for Nationwide. "It's this passion that we feel is a perfect match for the Nationwide brand. We hope to build a strong relationship with the millions of fans of Jack Hanna's Into the Wild by establishing common ground in our shared advocacy for wildlife conservation and the protection of all living creatures."
