GAC’s ‘INSIDE THE WNFR’ hosts Suzanne Alexander and Justin McKee catch up with Trace Adkins at the 2011 Wrangler National Finals Rodeo.
Justin McKee will join the Xtreme Bulls broadcast team beginning with the Ft. Mojave Classic, which will be broadcast on GAC April 24 at 10/9 p.m. CT. Justin, a long-time TV personality, will join as the fourth member of the team, which includes veteran TV host Dan Miller, 8-time World Champion Bull Rider Don Gay and GAC’s own Suzanne Alexander.
This won’t be the first time Justin and Suzanne have worked together. Justin was Suzanne’s co-host on GAC’s Inside the WNFR pre-show, which aired before the 2011 live telecast of the WNFR. A PRCA announcer since 1993, Justin will be both on-air and in the arena, including announcing duties at Wrangler Million Dollar Gold Tour events in St. Paul, OR, Cheyenne, WY and Ellensburg, WA.
“I’m extremely excited to be joining the Xtreme Bulls team on GAC” Justin said. “Working with the great committees in this Association as an announcer is a blessing, and being able to showcase the bull riders, livestock and committees that make up the division 1 XBulls tour is icing on the cake.”
“GAC has proven to be a terrific partner for the coverage of PRCA ProRodeo and the addition of Justin McKee will only enhance our fans’ viewing experience.” PRCA Commissioner Karl Stressman said. “I firmly believe the talented team assembled is the best in the business and its great our fans get to know and enjoy them year-round as we follow the road to the Wrangler NFR.”
When Justin isn’t in the announcer’s booth, he’s an avid steer roper and heads up his family cattle operation in Lenapah, Oklahoma, raising and training pure-bred bucking stock, quarter horses and beef cattle.
The PRCA Extreme Bulls Tour provides ProRodeo fans with a national schedule that brings PRCA bull riding to millions of fans. GAC will broadcast coverage from the PRCA Xtreme Bulls Tour events, including the Tour Finale in Ellensburg, Washington, on Tuesdays from 10-11:30 PM/ET. GAC is offered on Ch. 165 on DISH Network and on Ch. 326 on DIRECTV.
