Rodeo Announcer Chad Nicholson
the most recognized
voices in the PRCA"
When it comes to excitement, PRCA Rodeo Announcer Chad Nicholson
is right in the middle of it helping to make it all happen.
Since 1993, he has been entertaining and educating rodeo fans
from coast to coast and border to border maintaining a busy
Chad, a native Texan, now makes his home in the Central California
farming community of Exeter. But he credits his Texas roots
that initially spawned his affection of the sport. A former
contestant himself, Chad has accomplished much over his 11
year professional announcing career. From being selected to
announce five PRCA Circuit Finals Rodeos to the prestigious
Dodge National Circuit Finals Rodeo, he has always maintained
one simple philosophy, have fun and make sure everyone else
has fun too.
There are many aspects of Professional Rodeo that keeps Chad
traveling 40,000 miles per year, but probably the most important
to him is the patriotic atmosphere that naturally exists in
rodeo. A United States Marine Corps Reserve Veteran, Chad
prides his announcing ability in his powerful, patriotic openings.
“The Rodeo Cowboy is one of the last free-spirits left
in America today”, he says, “and we never will
forget who and what gives us the opportunity to participate
in and carry-on such a great American tradition that truly
exemplifies freedom and heritage.” In fact, his openings
have become so popular, that he receives hundreds of complimentary
emails from fans, rodeo committees, and of course U.S. Armed
Forces Veterans. “There are no scripts to my openings.
I just speak from the heart letting pure emotion drive the
moment,” Chad said. And pure emotion coupled with his
extensive rodeo knowledge and a very high fun factor is exactly
what you will get from start to finish of every rodeo performance
When Chad is not in the announcer’s stand, you can find
him on the golf course, mountain biking in the woods, or on
a beach playing with his dogs Marley and Riata. You may also
find him inside your radio or television performing commercials
for businesses and events around the country.
