Montana’s Will Rasmussen named rodeo announcer of the year


Choteau, native of Montana, Will Rasmussen won top honors in Las Vegas. This, while the National Finals Rodeo (NFR) is underway.

Rasmussen was named 2021 Rodeo Announcer of the Year by the Women’s Professional Rodeo Association. He was also one of the five finalists for the PRCA Rodeo Announcer of the Year.

Will Rasmussen: My eyes are always blurry. I wipe them from sleep. And it is, the city of Las Vegas is absolutely horny. It’s one of the biggest events in Vegas, believe it or not. And the contestants, the contestants, all the rodeo committees that go there and the contract staff. It was so good to be back in Vegas. And boy, this rodeo is something – they’ve got about 18,000 people stuck in this hall at Thomas and Mack and it’s absolutely electric. So you should have it on your bucket list.

Rasmussen says the recognition of the WPRA was a huge honor.

After receiving national recognition in Vegas, he’s already back in the saddle at KSRA radio in Idaho. But don’t worry, he’ll be back in Montana soon for the upcoming Chase Hawks Rodeo. He’s also booked to announce big events in Rapid City, South Dakota and Tucson, Ariz., Not to mention the Montana World Circuit Finals.
