The MC Behind the Mic - Professional Rodeo Announcer Joe Scully, ProRodeo MC

Joe ScullyThe traditional rodeo announcer is the voice of the rodeo. As a commentator, they give play-by play of the action, interact with the crowd, and inform everyone listening as to what is taking place in the Arena. They are usually quick on their feet, educated about the sport, and have a clear voice that can be listened to for 2 hours.

And then there is rodeo by Joe Scully, ProRodeo MC.
