Hey Amarillo is a weekly, one-on-one interview podcast featuring the people and stories of Amarillo, Texas

Sep 11, 2023

A conversation with Brady Ragland, Chief Executive Officer of the Amarillo Tri-State Exposition, Fair & Rodeo. A Lubbock native, Ragland grew up showing livestock in the 4-H program before getting into amateur stock and cattle judging at Texas Tech. The connections he made in those worlds led to ag-related work in San Antonio and Alabama before he landed at the Tri-State Expo. With the Fair opening this weekend for its 100th year, Ragland tells host Jason Boyett how his career path brought him to Amarillo, why the tangible sights and sounds of the Fair remain special in a tech-obsessed world, and how he and his team planned for this Centennial year. This episode is sponsored by Storybridge and La-Z-Boy of Amarillo.
