HALL OF FAME: A RECORD OF NSPRA HISTORY AND ACHIEVEMENTS

Joe Cavanaugh

Inman, Nebraska
Announcer

Joe Cavanaugh was born in O'Neill, Nebraska on March 31, 1922.

Joe was a well known bull rider throughout his rodeo
contesting career and was one of only two bull riders to
ride Blue Boy and Eight Ball.

Joe went on to announcing rodeos and was the first
announcer for the first Old Timers Rodeo in Hyannis,
Nebraska, known as the "Grandaddy of 'em All" and
continued as the 'voice' of that rodeo for twenty years.
Altogether, he has announced over 600 rodeos in nearly
twenty states and several Canadian Provinces. Among
those was the first National Finals of the National Old
Timers Rodeo Association held in Las Vegas, Nevada in
1979.

Joe Cavanaugh is the first rodeo announcer to be
inducted into the Senior Pro Rodeo Hall of Fame.
