Duck Commander-Independence Bowl has new wings

Posted: Updated:
SHREVEPORT, La -

Even after losing it's title sponsor following this year's bowl, it looks like Shreveport's Independence Bowl has new wings.  And it's a local game changer.  KTBS has confirmed with Executive Director of the I-bowl Missy Setters that Duck Commander has agreed to a new partnership.

The bearded boys of A&E's hit show Duck Dynasty and their multi-million dollar company may fill in the void that Advocare left.  No official details have been released, but there will be a press conference on Wednesday to announce the specifics.  Meantime, multiple reports are stating that Duck Commander has signed a 6 year title sponsorship deal.

Of course, we'll bring you more on this developing story as the week goes on.
