WAYNE BROOKS

Making his 25th appearance at the California Rodeo Salinas, Wayne Brooks is calling the action he was once a part of. A professional saddle bronc rider-turned announcer in 1993, Brooks is one of the sport’s top announcers. He has earned the honor of being chosen the PRCA Announcer of the Year five times! Wayne lives in Lampasas, TX with his wife Melanie; they have a son, Ace, and two daughters Taylor (Austin) and Sheridan (Kyle). When Wayne isn’t traveling to rodeos across North America, he and Melanie enjoy being grandparents to Ella, Joseph, Lucy, Jane, and Henry.


WILL RASMUSSEN

Montana native Will Rasmussen started announcing at Salinas in 1999. A professional announcer since 1994, 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 and enjoyable for both first-time attendees and rodeo enthusiasts alike. He was named the Announcer of the Year for the Women’s Professional Rodeo Association in 2021 and he is a six time top five finalist for PRCA Announcer of the Year. Will lives in Salmon, ID with his wife Kathi and they have 7 children and 7 grandchildren.
