Las Vegas Events and RFD-TV are teaming up for the third straight year Dec. 3-12 to bring you live behind-the-scenes television coverage of the entire Cowboy Experience during the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo. In addition, Rural Radio SiriusXM Channel 147 will air live play-by-play coverage of every rodeo performance.
On RFD-TV, expect more than four hours of coverage each day from Las Vegas. The nightly go-round buckle ceremony from the South Point Hotel and Casino kicks off each daily broadcast schedule at 3 p.m. (ET). Flint Rasmussen’s talk show, Outside the Barrel, immediately follows at 4 p.m. daily, and afternoon programming wraps up with live daily broadcasts of Western Sports Roundup at 5 p.m. That’s when Steve Kenyon and Amy Wilson will provide up-to-the-minute news and conduct interviews with contestants, entertainers and more.
Tune in for possible highlights from the Benny Binion’s Bucking Horse and Bull Sale, the Miss Rodeo America pageant, and the annual charity bowling and golf tournaments. Other news bytes will come from the always-entertaining Pro Rodeo League of Women Style Show and the Priefert World Series of Team Roping at the South Point, plus the brand-new Boyd Gaming Chute-Out Rodeo at The Orleans Arena, Dec. 10-12.
Rural Radio SiriusXM Channel 147 will broadcast each show one hour after it airs on RFD-TV. In addition, the Cowboy Shopping Network will air daily from Las Vegas on RFD-TV at 6 p.m. (ET). And on Rural Radio, live coverage of each performance kicks off with a pre-show nightly at 9 p.m. (ET).
Episodes of three shows will be filmed live each day from the RFD-TV stage in the South Halls of the Las Vegas Convention Center, near RFD-TV Booth #4531.
