COLORADO SPRINGS - ProRodeoLive.com and the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association have agreed on a three-year contract extension which will assure the continuation of Steve Kenyon's live webcasts of the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo through 2015.
ProRodeoLive, the radio and Internet home of ProRodeo, is owned and operated by Kenyon, a PRCA member announcer from Pendleton, Ore. It has been producing exclusive live coverage of the PRCA's premiere events, including the Wrangler NFR, since 2008.
This year, ProRodeoLive will be adding the Wrangler Champions Challenge to its broadcast schedule - the inaugural event May 18 in Redding, Calif., will be aired live - to go along with webcasts from the Cheyenne (Wyo.) Frontier Days, Pendleton (Ore.) Round-Up, Justin Boots Playoffs in Puyallup, Wash., Justin Boots Championships in Omaha, Neb., and the Xtreme Bulls Finale and Ellensburg (Wash.) Rodeo.
ProRodeoLive.com will be airing a simulcast from the Auburn (Calif.) Wild West Stampede Rodeo at 2 p.m. (PT) on April 27-28.
