Jimmy Kimmel Joins American Rivers Board


- Advertisment -

You can probably expect a few one-liners to utter forth at board meetings for American Rivers from now on. The nonprofit river advocacy organization recently announced three new board members, including…wait for it…the addition of Jimmy Kimmel of Jimmy Kimmel Live!

“I am thrilled to join the board of directors of American Rivers,” says Kimmel. “As an avid fly fisherman, I look forward to working with this great organization to protect wild rivers, restore damaged rivers and conserve clean water.”

An avid fly fisherman who regularly visits Montana, Idaho and other states to escape the confines of LA, Kimmel is the host and executive producer of Jimmy Kimmel Live! He has also worked as a writer, comedian, voice actor, musician, and radio personality, and has hosted such other television programs as Win Ben Stein’s Money and The Man Show.

AR is excited to have his, and its other new board members’ help, in protecting our nation’s waterways. “Rivers are under threat from complex challenges and American Rivers is spearheading solutions for rivers and communities across the country,” says AR president Bob Irvin. “Our new board members each bring with them knowledge and experience from their diverse professional backgrounds, and they care deeply about the future of our nation’s rivers. Their varied expertise will help us achieve our mission of protecting and restoring rivers nationwide.”

Also joining Kimmel on the AR board is Carrie Besnette Hauser of Glenwood Springs, Colo., president and CEO of Colorado Mountain College, who has summited Mt. Kilimanjaro, climbed to the Mt. Everest base camp, and worked as a “swamper” for Hatch River Expeditions in the Grand Canyon, near her home town of Flagstaff, Arizona; and Chicago’s David Solomon, CEO of Lazard’s Middle Market Advisory Group, which provides transaction advice to public and private companies as well as private equity groups. Solomon is also an avid fly fisherman and outdoorsman, and has canoed extensively in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area of Minnesota.
