Robertson, 66, joined the Delta Waterfowl board in spring of 2017. He lives in Virginia Beach, Virginia and currently serves as Chairman of Bay Shore Enterprises, LLC, an investment holding company with activities in international media, real estate and private capital ventures. He previously served as President and CEO of International Family Entertainment (NYSE-FAM), which was best known for its flagship cable network, The Family Channel.
Following the sale of FAM to Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp., Robertson has pursued educational, charitable and public service activities. In addition to the Delta board, he has served on the board of his alma mater — the University of Virginia — as well as the Virginia Chapter of the Nature Conservancy and the Virginia Aquarium and Marine Science Museum.
He first developed an interest in hunting through his grandfather, U.S. Senator A. Willis Robertson, who was the co-author of the Pittman-Robertson wildlife conservation bill. This law remains an historic legislative high-water mark in the funding of conservation in the United States.
Later in life, Robertson became a truly avid waterfowl hunter in order to share quality time with his son, Willis H. Robertson. He primarily hunts in Virginia’s historic Back Bay region, as well as North Carolina’s Currituck Sound.
“I love the fact that Delta Waterfowl is committed to science-based solutions to increasing duck production,” Robertson said. “Through all of our efforts, we will preserve this great sport for many generations to come.”
