With more than two decades of experience in the industry and a Wrangler and Ariat endorsee, Rasmussen is a veteran rodeo announcer who, since advancing to the PRCA ranks in 1994, has shared his style of announcing with rodeo fans in Montana and across the United States.
Rasmussen's trademark is his enthusiasm for the sport and his ability to involve the entire audience in each of the rodeo events.
His commentary is down-to-earth, sprinkled with rodeo facts and trivia that make the show understandable and enjoyable for veteran fans and first-time enthusiasts. "I'm committed to getting the audience totally involved in every performance," he says.
His personal knowledge of the sport, sense of humor and timing blend together for a quality presentation that enhances the rodeo and satisfies the fans. "I guess it's my sense that you need more than just a rodeo," he says. "People want to be entertained."
The 48-year-old Montana man's love of rodeo stems from his experience as the oldest child of the "Rodeoing Rasmussens," a family inwhich just about everyone was involved in the sport of rodeo.
His mother is a timer and his father an experienced announcer. One brother is a competitor, while his youngest brother, Flint, is an 8x 'PRCA Clown of the Year.'
