Announcer, Cowboy and Trick Roper
Professional Rodeo Announcer Anthony Lucia comes to us from Weatherford, Texas. Lucia has been a part of U.P. Rodeo several times over the years, both as a highly sought after announcer, and as a specialty act, skillfully entertaining the crowds with his trick roping. Lucia’s abilities don’t stop there; he is also a competitive team roper.
Where Lucia gets his talent from is no secret. His father, well known rodeo performer Tommy Lucia, who owned and trained Whiplash the Cowboy Monkey, raised Lucia in the rodeo world. Traveling the country with his father since he was four years old, Lucia began joining him in rodeo performances at age 8, and he hasn’t stopped since.
As a rodeo announcer, Lucia is responsible for not only entertaining, but also educating the crowd on what is happening in the rodeo arena. While explaining each event and announcing the scores and times for the rodeo contestants, Lucia also works with the rodeo clown to make sure the production is top notch. And he does this all while on horseback!
With a slew of achievements, including a roping appearance on ‘America’s Got Talent’, having been named the 2010 Great Lakes Circuit Finals Rodeo Specialty Act and the 2010-2013 National Finals Trick Roper, Lucia also continues to announce the World’s Toughest Rodeo Tour and hosts the show Live with Lucia in Las Vegas, during the National Finals Rodeo.
“I traveled the country with my dad and hero Tommy Lucia since I was four years old. Learning from him and refining my own skills. At 23 I went pro and have never looked back. I am a professional trickroper, announcer and team roper. I do what I do, and whatever gifts I have are on loan from God. My motto is, “Electrify and Glorify”.”-Anthony Lucia
