Maybe I’m missing something, but I haven’t seen a report on Leah Garcia leaving the Professional Bull Riders telecasts. In fact, a release issued Dec. 28, 2010, lists Garcia as one of the behind-the-chutes announcers, along with Erin Coscarelli.
I’ve read a considerable amount of feedback from PBR fans who are unhappy with the changes on the VERSUS telecasts of events, and many fans miss Garcia and longtime announcer Justin McKee – see this post. In fact, several fans have made reference to Garcia on that link.
I’ve received word from the PBR that supports the Dec. 28 news release indicating Garcia and Coscarelli are sharing the “sideline reporter” duties. But that doesn’t mean fans are happy about it. From what I gather, it’s just another straw on the camel’s back for many who aren’t happy with the changes in the TV production.
What do you think?
