The Women’s Professional Rodeo Association (WPRA) in conjunction with Applebox Pictures of West Monroe, La., is pleased to announce the debut of Women’s Pro Rodeo Today on RFD-TV. Women’s Pro Rodeo Today will be a weekly TV magazine show featuring WPRA events, tips from the pros, member profiles and the latest WPRA news. The first show will air on Wednesday, July 2 at 9:30 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT, as part of RFD-TV’s "Rodeo Night."

"We are thrilled to partner with Applebox Pictures on this one-of-a-kind show to help spread the word about the WPRA and all the new exciting opportunities for our members," said Jymmy Kay Davis, President of the WPRA. "We believe that the Women’s Pro Rodeo Today show will allow us to build our fan base, and let women in rodeo and those interested in rodeo know about all the new and exciting opportunities our association has to offer."

Each week Women’s Pro Rodeo Today will feature a WPRA event, highlighting the competition and the local committee that makes it all possible. Fans will also be kept up-to-date on the latest in the WPRA World and NFR standings, giving them an inside look on who has the best chance at capturing a world title. There will also be a segment titled Tips from the Pros giving viewers advice from what type equipment works best, to the care of the animal to how to improve your time and much, much more. Each episode will also feature a WPRA member, in which fans will not only learn about their competition record, but what they enjoy doing outside the rodeo arena.

"Fans are going to discover what makes these women truly special," said Roy Davenport, Senior Producer of Applebox Pictures. "Not only as pro athletes at the very pinnacle of their sport, but also as great examples of why the western lifestyle is so appealing."

Over the past few years RFD-TV has been televising several rodeo related shows that include Championship Bull Riding (CBR), shows that highlight the high school and college rodeo athletes and now the Women’s Pro Rodeo Today show. As a result RFD-TV has decided to make Wednesday night be known as "Rodeo Night," which will showcase each of these shows beginning at 9 p.m. ET.
