The Cowboy Channel featured on front of Fort Worth Star Telegram sports page


The Cowboy Channel team was honored today to see our name on the front page of the sports page of the Fort Worth Star Telegram, thanks to seasoned rodeo journalist Brett Hoffman.

“When it comes to the herd of sports broadcasting channels, there’s a new horse in the barn,” Hoffman writes. “One-sport fans have long had their own TV destinations to call home — be it for the NBA, NFL, MLB and so on — but now rodeo fans have their own channel/signal. And it will be based in the heart of rodeo country.”

He continues: “Rodeos have been televised for decades, but live broadcasts have been sparse. On the PRCA, iconic rodeos have been shown on cable television, but in an edited, tape-delayed format.Even the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo performances from Las Vegas that have been broadcast on the CBS Sports Network in recent years have not been completely live. But under the new agreement, the 2020 NFR performances in December will be live from the time the first chute opens for bareback riding until the last gate closes for bull riding.”

We want to thank Brett Hoffman and the Star Telegram for their support and the flattering feature on our coverage of the Fort Worth Stock Show & Rodeo — as well as the rodeo, athletes, crew, and talent that have made it happen in our first year as the Official Network of ProRodeo!
