Like many announcers before him, Gardiner’s Rodeo career began in the arena as a contestant.

It is that love for the sport and appreciation for the contestants that he tries to convey to the audience each and every performance. Gardiner’s distinctive sound, infectious energy and informative style has seen him climb the ranks of the industry and become one of the most sought after Announcers on Canadian soil.An occupation that will see him travel from coast to coast 40 weeks of the year as he has quickly and firmly endeared himself to audiences across Canada. Brett has been fortunate enough to have received the Bill Kehler Memorial award on two separate occasions during his intercollegiate career and in 2011 and 2012 received the industry’s top honour by being named the CPRA’s Announcer of the Year.When not travelling the Rodeo trail Brett makes his home in Sylvan Lake, AB with his wife Jaclyn and their two children Grady and Hadley.
