Randy Corley – ProRodeo Hall of Fame Inductee 2017:
Mr. Randy Corley is a professional rodeo announcer who is one of the BEST in the business. He has been the voice of Prescott Frontier Days, Inc®. at the World’s Oldest Rodeo® for the past 33 years. Randy brings excitement, knowledge and enthusiasm to the arena during each rodeo performance.
In 2017, Randy was inducted into the ProRodeo Hall of Fame along with a class of well-respected rodeo legends.
- 12-time PRCA Announcer of the Year (1984, 1990-96, 1998, 2003, 2011 and 2015)
- 16-time Announcer at the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo in Las Vegas (1985-86, 1992, 1994-96, 2007-2016)
Not only does he have a talented voice to engage rodeo audiences around the country, he also brings a unique perspective to the sport of rodeo with his knowledge of the contestants and their career stats. He reads up on contestants before announcing a rodeo and educates rodeo audiences during each event.
Originally a bareback riding and bull riding contestant, Corley started making radio commercials, then went to broadcasting school with the idea of becoming a rodeo announcer.
The late Hadley Barrett, a ProRodeo Hall of Fame announcer – and Corley’s father-in-law – heard Corley in North Platte, Neb., and invited him to apply for his PRCA card, which he did in 1980.
The rest is history folks!
It is an honor to have him each year at the World’s Oldest Rodeo® and if you get a chance, please congratulate him on his Hall of Fame induction!
