SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KELO AM) - A South Dakota native is following in the footsteps of the legendary Marlin Perkins as Mutual of Omaha’s Wild Kingdom Wild Guide.
Stephanie Arne hosts the online version of the program with webisodes about today’s Wild Kingdom.
Arne’s first webisode “Reef Madness” became available last weekend and “Where the Buffalo Roam” premieres Sunday night at six.
Arne says she brought the film crew to South Dakota because she wanted to show that we're not just that box state with four faces in the rock. She says the state has great people with amazing ecosystems and she wanted to tell the amazing story of the American bison.
Arne was named Wild Guide after a competition with over 200 candidates.
She’s a Pierre Rigg’s High School and South Dakota State University graduate.
