“It’s fun to watch the reaction that each guest has when they come in the Cowboy Channel studio," Amy says. "Then they see the original photos of the auction barn, and they realize the history there along with being impressed with studio. It’s all a great representation of what Western Sports is all about – appreciating the history and foundation while always striving to grow and improve in the future,” says Amy Wilson
"We've had some great guests come through the new studio in Fort Worth, which make for some pretty memorable moments — including the day we got to introduce the PRCA's teenage all-around standings leader, Stetson Wright, to 8-time World Champion and legend Larry Mahan," says Steve.
“Joining the Western Sports Round-Up team, as well as The Cowboy Channel team, has been an adrenaline rush from day one," says Janie. "But all I have to say is if you want to be a part of rodeo and all of the exciting things happening in professional rodeo, this is the only place to be. This is where it’s all happening, and with every day, the show keeps getting better and better. And to be a part of that is so cool. It feels very special to play a part in this world that I grew up in and have loved my entire life.”
