2020 Legend of ProRodeo: Bob Tallman

ProRodeo Hall of Fame has named longtime rodeo announcer Bob Tallman the 2020 Legend of ProRodeo. Tallman will be will be recognized before the 2020 NFR on November 30 at the Wrangler Gold Buckle Gala at Billy Bob’s Texas in Fort Worth.

“I’ve been the host of the Legend of ProRodeo event three or four times, and I asked (ProRodeo Hall of Fame director) Kent Sturman, ‘Is there somebody older than me who might not be in good health that is more deserving?’” Tallman told ProRodeo.com. “I have been so over awarded in 50 years, and in one week I got the call to work the (2020 Wrangler National Finals Rodeo), then I passed my real estate test and then I got a call from Kent Sturman. It was a Triple Crown week.

“I’m going to give the credit to the selection committees. I’m going to give the credit to the Lord. As long as I can be humble enough to accept by those who chose this and I can be an example for others who will receive it (Legend of ProRodeo) in the future and that I can walk the walk and talk the talk and set the example in receiving it for the younger people coming up in the world, I accept it.”
