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.
Here's the Washington Post article I talked about on the show Monday. Should we be surprised that Rep. King blasted off on facts he couldn't support, and continues to double-down with anyone who asks? No. Is he the only politician to do this? No. Should 4th District voters keep this in mind in November 2014? That's purely up to you all.
