Is the National Finals Rodeo Leaving Las Vegas?
Is the National Finals Rodeo Leaving Las Vegas?

Listen
AIR DATE: December 18, 2013

On Monday, newspapers and television stations reported that the National Finals Rodeo would be leaving Las Vegas after 29 years. "Hold your horses!" said officials with the association that runs the rodeo. Apparently they hadn't completely quit Las Vegas after all. Some members of the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association hope that they can come to some agreement to stay in Las Vegas. But can Southern Nevada offer a deal that would compete with a generous offer from Osceola County, Florida? And what will happen in the rodeo does leave town anyway?
