Born in 1955, Pam Minick’s varied career in rodeo began in high school with roping and barrel racing. She captured the Nevada State Barrel Racing Championship in 1971 and was declared Miss Rodeo America in 1973. Pam won the Women’s World Championship Calf Roping title in 1982, and she continues to compete as a professional team roper (heeler).


Pam Minick is best known, however, as a rodeo commentator. She works before the television camera for The Nashville Network’s Mesquite Championship Rodeo and the Professional Bull Riders Tour broadcasts. Minick has appeared in national commercials for rodeo sponsors like Coca Cola, General Motors Light Trucks, Western Airlines and Wrigley’s Big Red Gum. She made appearances in several films, including “The Sacketts” and “Rodeo Girl.”


Celebrity has not altered Minick’s devotion to rodeo. She was vice president and publicity director for the Women’s Professional Rodeo Association for more than 15 years, and she continues to compete as a team roper, having qualified for the Women’s National Finals Rodeo 16 times.


For her many contributions to rodeo and her competitiveness within the sport, Pam Minick received the Tad Lucas Memorial Award in 1998.
