Animal Planet to air 'Crocodile Hunter' Steve Irwin's memorial service
UPI News Service, 09/16/2006
The Animal Planet cable channel plans to air Tuesday's memorial service in Australia for "Crocodile Hunter" Steve Irwin in the United States.
Animal Planet said in a news release the memorial at the Australia Zoo in Beerwah, Australia, would be aired Tuesday night at 9 p.m. EDT and again at midnight.
Irwin was a mainstay of Animal Planet's television lineup and has been eulogized steadily since Irwin was killed in an encounter with a huge stingray off Australia's Great Barrier Reef.
The network will run 15 hours of Irwin's "Crocodile Hunter" episodes and taped tributes on Sunday.
