WNFR Ready To Ride On Radios Nationwide
Productions, the official radio network of the PRCA, is preparing
for the play by play radio broadcasts of the 2002 Wrangler National
Finals Rodeo in Las Vegas, NV. The live broadcasts, which include
a pre-game and post game show, bring the worlds richest rodeo
to over forty radio stations across the United States and Canada.
For a list of stations airing the live broadcasts, go to www.R4Productions.com
addition, each radio broadcast will also be simulcast on the world
wide web. Fans can log onto www.R4Productions.com
or to catch the jump by jump action of the WNFR.
Productions, the brainchild of PRCA announcer Wayne Wise, has enjoyed
tremendous growth since the first broadcasts in 2000. "I started
with 2 local stations, built the network to 18 stations in 2001,
and now we have 42 stations in two countries airing the Finals,"
Wise said. "The idea of rodeo on the radio is really becoming
attractive to stations and the corporate world as well. People like
The Palms in Las Vegas, Wells Fargo, Bass Pro Shops, and Las Vegas
Events, are seeing the value in advertising on the network, and
Im sure that it will only become more and more attractive
as time goes on."
Productions, along with the live broadcasts of the WNFR, also offers
a weekly program called "Prorodeo Primetime." The weekly
program focuses on the lifestyles of the rodeo athletes and features
interviews with the top cowboys and cowgirls in professional rodeo.
"The weekly show is a bit cutting edge with the music we use
and the types of questions we ask, but listeners from all over have
expressed their thanks for airing this type of show, so I guess
well keep going in this direction," said Wise.
the future, R4 Productions plans to broadcast the Wrangler Prorodeo
Tour, the USST Cup Finales, as well as the WNFR. Wise, along with
fellow PRCA announcer Mike Bonds, provide the play by play action.
