McKee, PBR together again

Announcer Justin McKee is going to be working with the Professional Bull Riders again, adding his experience and expertise in a little different capacity.

In a release issued Friday, the PBR announced that McKee and PBR Now on RFD-TV will both return to the airwaves next Thursday for a special edition. McKee and PBR have also finalized an agreement to include McKee as a media and live event personality in future projects.

It doesn’t mention if McKee will be part of the regular TV production of the PBR’s Built Ford Tough Series on the VERSUS network. Based on the tone of the news release, I assume that McKee will not be on the regular “game” broadcasts of the events.

The administrator of the Save Justin McKee page on Facebook wrote: “I’m happier than a pig in fresh mud … WE WON!!!!!! Justin McKee is coming back to the PBR!!!! Congratulations McKee and his loyal fans, the PBR finally listened.”

Great news, but looking at the line-up, what are the chances that this was the entire plan from the beginning? Would be a good PR stunt, create buzz, adulation, and a loyalty to a new brand?

Attitudes ….that’s the problem. Money talks and the people behind the money have no clue about the bull business or what goes on behind the scenes. Justin is the glue that held that commentating booth together! He has the know-how, common sense, voice, PERSONALITY, and knowledge of the sport of rodeo and bulls. Everyone loves Justin because he’s the downhome kinda guy that takes the smartoff comments from Ty and JW and just laughs. Ty must have danced all his sense out and JW didn’t have any to begin with! I’d like to know who convienced Justin McBride that he could sing, we should chip in and by that person a hearing aide!
When you wait on the Lord, He renews your strength…
Justin waited on the Lord and HE took care of the problem. We just need to keep up our comments and continued request for him to be back on the show…viewers and friends have power…
Age…remember when Pam Minick interviewed the riders…Pam was replaced by Leah because of her age. Pam is still beautiful and busy as a bee.
The PBR has a hang-up about age and knowledge. They don’t want someone smarter than Ty or JW talking, that really makes them look uneducated! What about Michael Gaffney…he took his million and exited.

I would rather hear from Shorty Gorman than any of those guys in the booth. Shorty knows his stuff, has a good voice and a great personality!
I hope Justin does come back very soon. My sister talked to him a few days ago but he didn’t mention anything about a return to the PBR. I’m watching now…boring!
I was going to buy tickets for the event in Arlington again but decided not to waste my money!

I have to agree with KG Yale, Shorty is the only port in the storm right now for them. He knows what’s going on and he has a good raport with the riders and the camera. I have a real issue when JW is on that he is constantly referred to as J-Dub. That grates on my nerves like nothing else and sounds so red-neck! Maybe that’s what they are going for, who knows?! Sooo glad that Justin will be coming back, ‘bought time.

My husband and I are glad to hear that Justin is coming back. We’re hoping he spends some time in the broadcast booth. Something is missing without him. We enjoy Shorty more than any of the others. He has such a good sense of humor and know the bullriders and bulls.

I MISS JUSTIN McKEE’S COMMENTARY EXPERIENCE. HE ALWAYS KNEW SO MUCH ABOUT THE COWBOYS AND THE BULLS. I ALSO MISS LEAH! I WISH YOU WOULD HAVE LEFT THINGS ALONG.
