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.
It's been a crazy week here is NewsTalk 1430 KASI country, what with five inches of snow Thursday and Friday. I don't know about you, but its really put a damper on my mood. That being said, me and mine will take some time Saturday to mark an important international celebration.
While celebrating with my Padawan learners, I may even do some shopping.
Remember, fear is the path to the Dark Side.
See you Monday!
