Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Rock the Park taps into America's love affair with our national parks. Our hosts, Jack Steward and Colton Smith, come face to face with nature and some of the most awe-inspiring places on earth. The series will inspire Americans to get on the road and remind viewers that the national parks are one of America's greatest national gifts to the world. Jack Steward Jack Steward knew he was destined to visit every national park in America from the time he first laid eyes on a grizzly bear in Yellowstone. Even as a six year old, when his family took their first national park road trip, Jack felt a connection to the extraordinary wild spaces known as the US National Parks and everything he has done since then has been in preparation for a life of exploration. Jack attended college at the University of Montana, because it was in close proximity to several national parks and he pursued a career in television so he could hone his storytelling skills. Jack began work as a production assistant on several travel series, and has served as a story producer, camera operator and editor for many television productions since then. Today, Jack carries a camera wherever he goes and lives in Redondo Beach, California where he is just hours away from dozens of national parks and wilderness areas.
