This year’s annual Licking Chamber of Commerce Rodeo is just around the corner, with the Outlaw/5J Rodeo Company prepared to bring some of their best stock, Announcer Chris Pyle returning to what he has called one of his favorite rodeos, and Barrel/Funny Man Josh Foster readying himself to entertain the crowd.
Foster has been on this side of the rodeo industry for 12 years. He has accumulated several awards during that time, including being named the 2018 Tuff Hedeman Midwest Tour Entertainer of the Year, the 2019 Minnesota Rodeo Association Entertainer of the Year, and the 2022 Missouri Rodeo Cowboys Association Entertainer of the Year.
“I love my job and it’s my passion,” says Foster. “I literally get paid to help people forget about their problems and real life for two hours each night. Don’t get much better than that.”
