FSSW will deliver wall-to-wall coverage of 2019 Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo
FOX Sports Southwest announced today its coverage plans for the world-renowned Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo from NRG Stadium. The network will deliver wall-to-wall coverage of the 20-day event that begins Monday, Feb. 25, including live telecasts of RODEOHOUSTON’s two competitions: RODEOHOUSTON Super Series and the RODEOHOUSTON Super Shootout: North America’s Champions, presented by Crown Royal.
The Super Series is a 19-day tournament-style competition that crowns an event champion in bareback riding, bull riding, saddle bronc riding, steer wrestling, tie-down roping, team roping and women’s barrel racing. Super Shootout is an invitation-only event with a $250,000 purse, featuring reigning champions, in five traditional rodeo events, from renowned rodeos in North America.
FOX Sports Southwest will televise a pair of originally produced shows leading into 2019 RODEOHOUSTON that will look ahead to the events and profile some of this year’s competitors: RODEOHOUSTON Preview Special and RODEOHOUSTON: Meet the Athletes. Both specials will be replayed several times prior to the Rodeo.
The world’s largest livestock show and rodeo will be held Monday, Feb. 25 to March 17 at NRG Park, and FOX Sports Southwest will livestream the rodeo events on Feb. 25 to March 16 on the FOX Sports digital platforms.
