Justin McKee

Justin McKee is one of the most well respected Western Sports television hosts in the world. He got his start in television in 2001 when the Pro Bull Rider’s purchased their broadcast rights and chose Justin to take the lead role on TV. For ten years he was the “voice of the PBR” and worked for several networks including Versus and NBC Sports.


His background for broadcasting was as smooth and balanced as his Delivery. Justin literally grew up behind the microphone at his parents livestock auction in Oklahoma. He also is able to bring great insight to his commentary from being a competitor himself in the arena. Justin finished 18th in the world standings of Pro Rodeo steer roping in 2004 and holds the arena record in that event at the Cheyenne Frontier Days.


Justin is currently one of the host for The Cowboy Channel, the official network of ProRodeo, the only 24-hour television network dedicated to western sports and western lifestyle. He is also host and Co-producer of one of the networks top shows, Pro Rodeo Tonight.


You don’t have to be around him long to know that he is very passionate about telling the stories of the Western way of Life and Rural America. But above all, Justin is most proud to be the husband to Jeannie and dad to daughter Kassidy who is a senior at Tarleton State.
