The Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association and CBS Sports Network are pleased to announce a three-year contract extension for more than 100 hours of premier PRCA programming annually through 2019. The agreement includes the live telecast of all 10 rounds of the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo presented by Polaris RANGER—three hours nightly with an encore airing of each round to immediately follow.
“The PRCA is proud to showcase our sport and share it with longstanding, loyal fans and new fans alike on the CBS Sports Network,” said PRCA Commissioner Karl Stressman. “Our TV numbers are strong, and we anticipate continued growth in the coming years based on ProRodeo’s growing popularity.”
The contract extension also includes 14 regular-season rodeo telecasts including the Wrangler Champions Challenge programs and encore presentations each year, as well as the final round of the RAM National Circuit Finals Rodeo and All American ProRodeo Finals, which is presented by Pendleton Whisky. In addition, the July 24th Medal Round of the Days of ’47 Cowboy Games also will be televised on CBS Sports Network.
