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.
As promised, here are some YouTube links that give you a glimpse of genius. Johnathan Winters had a career that spanned more than 50 years. Guys like Robin Williams and Jim Carrey credit him for their careers in comedy. Mr. Winters worked clean--and killed. Just destroyed.
From The Jack Paar show--circa 1964. Pay attention to the admiration in Parr's intro.
From Late Night With David Letterman--circa 1986. This is a link to the second segment Johnathan did with Dave that night. Robin Williams comes in for the last couple of minutes. Pay attention as Letterman sits back and just watches it happen.
Legend is an oversued word today. He's it.
