Corbin new voice for Texas Veterans Land Board, services
AUSTIN -- As the new spokesman for the Texas Veterans Land Board, Texas-born and -bred actor Barry Corbin has a face most everyone will recognize, even if they may not know his name.
Corbin, a member of the Texas Film Hall of Fame, earned his Texas veterans benefits long before starring in TV series including “Anger Management,” “Matlock,” “The Thorn Birds,” and “Northern Exposure.”
When not on the set, Corbin enjoys spending time on his ranch near Fort Worth and is an accomplished rider.
Corbin’s 30-second TV and radio ads for the Veterans Land Board were shot on a ranch in Liberty Hill owned by a Texas veteran. The spots aired in Fort Worth, Central Texas, and San Antonio and will be pushed out statewide via social media and direct marketing efforts. The campaign aims to let Texas veterans know about the benefits they’ve earned through their service. Learn more at www.texasveterans.com.
