Bull riding has a very passionate fan base that has helped solidify FSN as the home of the CBR. We look forward to continuing to build on that audience over the coming years” - Josh Oakley, Director of Acquisitions for FSN
Fort Worth, TX (PRWEB) February 22, 2013
Based on the tremendous success of the inaugural season of Championship Bull Riding (CBR) on Fox Sports Networks (FSN) , CBR and FSN are pleased to announce that a new multi-year agreement has been reached to continue televising Championship Bull Riding’s Road to Cheyenne Tour on FSN.
Since moving to FSN in 2012, average household viewership for CBR programming is up more than 290% compared to 2011 when CBR events were televised on another network. The move to FSN makes Championship Bull Riding the only bull riding tour that offers consistency in scheduling its programming on the same network and in the same weekly time slot. This has allowed CBR the added advantage of building and delivering a loyal following in both viewer reach and frequency.
Stated Josh Oakley, Director of Acquisitions for FSN, “Bull riding has a very passionate fan base that has helped solidify FSN as the home of the CBR. We look forward to continuing to build on that audience over the coming years”.
Benny Cude, Championship Bull Ridings’ Chairman also commented, “We are very pleased with the continued partnership between CBR and FSN. Our fan base continues to grow and the passion they feel for the sport of bull riding is evident in the numbers. We look forward to continuing to provide great programming to CBR fans nationwide.”
In 2013, CBR fans will have access to twenty-six (26) consecutive weeks of Championship Bull Riding shows on FSN scheduled to air during primetime. The 2013 season will begin Sunday, May 26. Check your local listings for time and availability in your area.
