When the new Big Tex debuts at the State
Fair of Texas this year, he will have a new voice.
The State Fair declined to offer Bill
Bragg a contract to continue as voice of Big Tex. Bragg has welcomed visitors
to the fair as Big Tex for the last 11 years.
State Fair spokesperson Sue Gooding said
it was her decision to not bring Bragg back.
There's no word of who the new voice of
Big Tex will be.
Fire destroyed Big Tex at the 2012 State
Fair and a new Big Tex is expected to be in place when the fair opens this year
on Sept. 27.
