by | Jun 12, 2024 | Breakaway Breakdown

Amy Wilson is a well-known face in Western media circles for her 11-year career on television and radio. But Wilson’s road to media royalty wasn’t as easy as one would think.

Crowned Miss Rodeo America, Amy spent a year being the face of the rodeo industry before returning home to work three jobs while searching for a new opportunity promoting rodeo and agriculture. After constantly putting herself out there, she was hired on by RFD-TV and moved to Omaha.

Fast forward more than a decade and Wilson has taken the next step in her career—becoming the Western Sports Media Manager for Equine Network. In this new role, Wilson will manage relationships with partners that stream events through Equine Network, commentate alongside Dru Stewart at events and network among the Western industry for new partnership opportunities.

Listen to the newest episode of The Breakdown Podcast to hear Amy Wilson’s story, plans for her career and 2024 goals for herself and her horses.

This episode is brought to you by Fast Back Ropes. Fast Back Ropes was created in 1995 with a single mission in mind – to build the best rope on the market. And That will always be their number one goal.

Fast Back focuses on building the best product possible and treating customers with the respect they deserve… and That philosophy has served them well for nearly 30 years.

Besides being a great company, Fast Back features two ropes breakaway ropers love.

The ‘Edge’ is a four-strand calf rope made of texturized poly. This rope is durable, meaning it stands up in all conditions.

Their other rope is ‘Athena,’ which is made exclusively for breakaway ropers. It’s pink with a purple poly core that gives enhanced tip weight and durability. It’s made for all conditions and delivers a snappy loop and close.
