FAMILIAR FACE JOINS BIG HOSS TV CREW

Big Hoss TV enters it second season in a few weeks at the Duck Commander 500 weekend, but there will be plenty of new things on the world’s largest high-definition LED video board at Texas Motor Speedway for fans to enjoy.

The newest addition will be a familiar face to those in the Metroplex as former WFAA-Ch. 8 (ABC) sportscaster George Riba joins the Big Hoss TV team. Riba, who recently retried from WFAA after 37 years at the station, has been a mainstay at TMS covering races and other events. He will report on Big Hoss TV from pit road and other areas to tell fans the story of the race from the competition side.

“This is a great way for me to keep involved in my favorite sport,” Riba said. “I think this is going to be really exciting and cool. NASCAR races at Texas Motor Speedway are a 43-ring circus and are always fun and interesting, so it should be exciting to bring those stories to the fans.”

Jon Wilson returns for his second season as host on Big Hoss TV and will once again bring his unique ability to connect with fans to tell their stories. Wilson also serves as the video board talent for Charlotte Motor Speedway.

Katie Tull, who is a member of the Great American Sweethearts and appears on the Texas Motor Speedway’s Total Access Radio Network weekly program, will assists with interviews from the garage “Red Carpet” event for the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series drivers prior to the Duck Commander 500.

Fans who have enjoyed NASCAR’s new pit road technology on TV this year will not miss a minute of that on Big Hoss TV. The video board will have full integration into the same video feeds that are seen on the television broadcasts.
