The Cowgirl Channel has entered the chat. Rural Media Group — a media company run out of the Historic Stockyards — cut the ribbon on a new television network earlier this week.
Owner Patrick Gottsch launched The Cowgirl Channel — a sister station to the five-year-old Cowboy Channel, which is the official network of ProRodeo.
Hosted on Dish Network, Sling TV, and Cowboy Channel+, the 24/7 station broadcasts live rodeo coverage and programming like “Rodeo Queens,” “Grit & Grace,” “RanchHer,” and the upcoming “Women’s Western Sports Roundup.”
As part of the event, Mayor Mattie Parker declared March 1 — the start of Women’s History Month — as The Cowgirl Channel Day to honor “women doing hard work and celebrating the western heritage that put Fort Worth on the map.”
Rural Media Group is currently constructing a studio for The Cowgirl Channel on Exchange Avenue — just down the street from the Cowboy Channel in the old auction barn — where visitors can watch live recordings.
