Since his start in radio news, Trent has won awards from the Nebraska Broadcasters Association, the Nebraska Associated Press, and the Iowa Broadcast News Association.
Rice also serves as the 2009-2010 President of the Iowa Broadcast News Association.
Rice is a native of Plattsmouth, Nebraska. He and his wife Solveig have been married since 2000. They live in Ames where he enjoys golf, reading, movies, music college football, and the heartbreak that comes from being a Minnesota Vikings fan. Trent and Solveig have twin daughters Annika and Kaija and a son, Erik, who shares the same birthday as his sisters, just five years later.
Good evening and welcome to what should be a pretty run-of-the mill Ames City Council meeting. Now, having said that...
7:26PM: Out-of-context quote of the night (so far). "You've made an already complicated projcet...even more complicated." Mayor Ann Campbell
8:05PM: This cannot be happening. So far, no excitement in this council meeting. Wow.
