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 that Esquire Magazine piece on a poll that "puts a face" on the New American Center. A little secret, that face looks an awful lot like this *points at self*. Castigate us all you want...that's fine...we'll just continue to decide all the elections.
Oh, and if you want to know where you fit on the political spectrum (what, like you don't know?) you can particiapate in Esquire's poll.
