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.
If you are out and about tomorrow, do me a solid and help NewsTalk 1430 KASI and the Iowa State Daily raise non-perishable food, cleaning supplies, and cash during the annual "Stuff the Bus" event. Seven grocery stores in Ames are taking part--just look for the CyRide busses.
Also--doesn't this seem a bit, well, paranoid? The Republican Party of Iowa want you to, only on a very minimal level, cooperate with police if you are stopped during "traffic safety checkpoint" in Polk County Friday night through early Saturday morning. On it's website, the Iowa GOP "...strongly urges you NOT to give in to any illegal searches of your car. Only comply by providing your license, registration and insurance if requested."
1. Record the conversation
2. Comply only with license, registration and insurance
3. Do not volunteer any additional information and do not permit a search of your vehicle for any reason.
4. Send the Iowa GOP any audio and video you have of your interactions with police.
Remember the halcyon days Republicans were they party of "law and order?" Wow. Paranoid much?
