Superior, Wi (Northlands NewsCenter)
-- Tugboat operators from the Northland will be featured Tonight, on the History Channel's newest show "Great Lake Warriors."

Tonight at nine, Mike Ojard and his fleet of ice-breaking tugboats will reveal to the nation what the day to day grind on Lake Superior is really about.

Mike's crew is one of three companies that had camera crews on-board filming the tugboats on the great lakes.

Ojard says that while most of the filming was done on the other ships, he's happy to give the twin-ports harbor was exposure.

"We're fortunate enough to try to promote not only our business, which it doesn't do much for our promotion but we also want to promote the Duluth-Superior Harbor," said Ojard.

Camera crews spent 4-weeks on Ojard's fleet of tugboats. Great Lake Warriors will premier at nine tonight on the History Channel.
