Kade Rogge – Announcer
A Rupert, Idaho Man who has what it takes to keep the crowd informed and entertained.
“How did you get started announcing?
Kade Rogge: While I was attending College of Southern Idaho, Brian our rodeo coach suggested having a rough stock school. During the school, he handed me the mic and that is where it all began. I started announcing high school rodeos and announced 15 that year. A good friend of mine Drew Taylor’s father who is a rodeo clown introduced me to Maury Tate who puts on the Cody Nite. He was needing an announcer so I have done that the past few years. Maury has been a huge help in building my announcing career.”
