On June 25th, Ovation, America’s only arts network, plans to celebrate the life, legacy, and passion of Anthony Bourdain. Not only recognized as a world-renowned chef and traveler, but a cultural icon, Ovation remembers the culture-seeker on his birthday with a four-hour showcase of select episodes from his Emmy-awarding series Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations. The tribute is set to air starting at 12 pm (ET) on Tuesday June 25th.
Throughout the programming block, the arts network will also be running on-air spots and inspiring quote snipes honoring Bourdain’s legacy and celebrating his spirit and insatiable curiosity to explore and appreciate new cultures.
This four-hour programming tribute looks to join in on the worldwide appreciation for a man who devoted himself to broadening perspectives and connecting humanity through inspiring stories and food. Dedicated to curating programming that showcases art in all its forms, Ovation honors Bourdain for his unique voice, profound storytelling, and appreciation for diversity.
In addition, Ovation is delighted to feature select seasons of Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations under its Ovation’s Journy Thursdays branded night as part of its commitment to offer viewers content that celebrates artistic expression in its various forms, and to inspire creativity and the spirit of wanderlust with travel-themed storytelling.
