  Professional Rodeo Announcer

Dave Poulsen announcerA former rodeo competitor - he admits to being a not-very-good bareback rider and later an accident-prone rodeo clown--David Poulsen has taken up residence in announcer's stands across North America. The results have been tremendously positive both for David and audiences who have heard his voice for over four decades and over 2500 performances.

The likeable Alberta native has appeared at many of the major rodeos and bull riding events across Canada, among them the Canadian Finals Rodeo (six times), the Calgary Stampede for over 30 years, Canada’s PBR Finals (six times) as well as several amateur and semi-professional championship finals events throughout western Canada. Dave's enthusiastic and knowledgeable commentary and upbeat fun-filled style have won him fans wherever he has appeared.

Equally at home in front of a TV camera, he has been seen on CTV Wide World of Sports, TSN Television Sports and for over twenty years co-hosted the popular Stampede Roundup program on Calgary's CFCN-TV first with Russ Peake and later with Glen Campbell. He also acted as co-host of the documentary series The Complete Rider for The Outdoor Life Network and most recently was a regular contributor, with his wife Barb, to the popular Cowboy Country, seen for four seasons in Canada and the US.

David's announcing talents have also taken him to big and small screen dramas; most recently he appeared in Heartland, the popular series that is filmed not far from Dave’s home in the Porcupine Hills, south and west of Calgary. He twice played the role of a rodeo announcer in the successful family series The Black Stallion and was behind the microphone for the rodeo scenes in the movie Convict Cowboy which starred Jon Voigt.

Next year's schedule will see Dave on the rodeo and bull riding trail from early spring through late fall. To check for available dates, fees etc, please call 403 625-9122 or email Dave at poulsend@telusplanet.net
