Premiere of Championship Bull Riding on FSN Is Just Days Away

The premier of Championship Bull Riding (CBR) on Fox Sports Network (FSN) is set to begin Sunday May 27th, 2012. Every minute of all the thrills and spills from the 2012 CINCH CBR Tour “Road To Cheyenne” will be shown every Sunday night on FSN and its regional sports network affiliates for 13 consecutive weeks. Check local listings for time and availability. 

Every Sunday, fans across America can tune in for 90 minutes of great bull riding action as CBR cowboys vie for the title of CBR World Champion. FSN reaches more than 80 million homes nationwide, through its owned and affiliated networks giving CBR a greater household reach than any other nationally televised, regular season bull riding or rodeo programming on the planet.

Said Wes Bruce, CEO of Championship Bull Riding: “We are greatly anticipating our debut season on FSN. The action from the 2012 CBR Cinch Tour has been incredible and we can’t wait for fans across to see it. CBR is extremely excited to be joining Fox Sports Net’s great programming line-up and we look forward to our world premiere on May 27th”.
“Bull riding has established its position as one of the most thrilling sports in the world. We’re excited to have CBR bring its unique voice and passion to our viewers this summer. Its event television that makes you want to put down your remote.” said Josh Oakley, Director of Acquisitions for FSN.
This agreement with CBR marks the return of professional bull riding to FSN, which last showcased the sport in 2008.
