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.
While I appreciate the fact that you've taken some time to read another one of my little missives, you really do need to go outside. Seriously, your mom called earlier and thinks you need to go out and get some fresh air. I mean, really. You've been cooped up all winter! GO OUT AND PLAY!
When you come back in, take some time to read this New York Times story about how your private use of social media could effect your job. See you Monday!
