Scenic River Cruises to Sponsor The Great British Baking Show on PBS

Boston, MA, June 2017 - Scenic Luxury Cruises and Tours, working in partnership with PBS National Sales, has announced its sponsorship of the fourth season of The Great British Baking Show, airing Fridays at 9pm beginning June 16th.

The Great British Baking Show (known as The Great British Bake Off in the UK) became widely successful in Britain, one of the most popular programs on the BBC, and a cultural phenomenon with a lasting influence far beyond its 60-minute runtime. Upon its arrival to PBS, the show has become one of the network’s most popular programs with growth in every demographic, on broadcast and digital platforms.

“We are thrilled to be working with PBS, and especially The Great British Baking Show, whose audience shares our passion for enriching their lives thru exploration – whether through culinary, culture or history – and embraces our spirit of wonder,” adds Joni Rein, vice president of marketing & sales USA. More information is available at www.scenicusa.com.

Just as PBS strives to provide only the highest quality programing to its dedicated audience, Scenic Luxury Cruises and Tours is committed to delivering unparalleled experiences, taking their guests into the cultural heart of the life that has been established over centuries along the waterways of Europe and Southeast Asia. From tracing the intricate waterways of Bordeaux, to the culturally rich Danube River, to a once-in-a-lifetime journey through Southeast Asia, each Scenic journey is handcrafted and created to deliver moments that are truly unforgettable. “We’re proud to work with a national sponsor that shares so many of PBS’s values, like life-long learning and travel,” said Adam Gronski, head of PBS National Sales.
