December 8 "NTPA Championship Pulling" Episode Pre-Empted by RFD-TV; Will Run December 14

Columbus, Ohio---RFD-TV has notified the NTPA office that the scheduled Tuesday, December 8 broadcast of "NTPA Championship Pulling" will be pre-empted in favor of the channel's continuing coverage of the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo. That event will consume most of the primetime broadcast hours of RFD-TV and its sister network, The Cowboy Channel, between Thursday, December 3 and Saturday, December 12.

The missed episode features the national debut of invitational Hot Farm Tractors from the 2020 NTPA Winter Nationals in Cloverdale, Indiana.

In addition to each episode's Tuesday 6:30 p.m. Eastern/5:30 p.m. Central premiere, encores run on Mondays at 12:30 a.m. and 6 a.m. Eastern (Sundays 11:30p/Mondays 5a Central). We invite viewers of the show to set their favorite device to record either airing on Monday, December 14 (Sunday, December 13 Central for the 11:30p airing).

The NTPA office is working toward securing an alternative date on which that episode can run in primetime. At present, it is automatically scheduled as a rerun for early June 2021.

"NTPA Championship Pulling" is now in its 16th season on RFD-TV, which may be found on DirecTV channel 345, Dish Network 231, AT&T 568, and many cable systems nationwide.
