Will Rasmussen honored by PRCA
Professional rodeo announcer Will Rasmussen of Choteau this week received a prestigious honor, as he is among five finalists for the PRCA’s Announcer of the Year award.
Rasmussen, 57, has announced pro rodeos for more than 25 years, following in the footsteps of his father, Stan, who was also a longtime rodeo announcer. Will annually announces more than 150 professional rodeo performances. He is known for his smooth voice, deliberate delivery and vast knowledge of the sport.
Will’s brother, Flint, is the famed funnyman of rodeo who now works exclusively on the Professional Bull Riders tour.
Will, who has for years been the voice of the Montana Pro Rodeo Circuit Finals as well as the Big Sky Pro Rodeo Roundup in Great Falls, is a finalist for Announcer of the Year along with highly regarded announcers Andy Stewart, Bob Tallman, Mike Mathis and Wayne Brooks.
The winner will be announced at the PRCA Awards Banquet at the South Point in Las Vegas on Dec. 5.
