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.
When Ames City Council candidates announced their plans to run this spring and summer, had hopes that we were done with this roller coaster of councils being elected soley on their views of development. Yeah, about that...
Seems that those forces are still at work, from those candidates who are in the race, who urged them to run, and who's supporting them. Seems like the more things change, the more they stay the same. For everything I've gathered, we have a spate of candidates who were urged to run based on what, where, and how they think businesses and houses should (or shouldn't) be built. Shades of 2009 and 2005. *sigh*
