Born and raised in San Diego, California, Rick was dubbed the "Country Surfer" by his buddies. There was one country station in San Diego and when he wasn't listening to that, he was on his board catching waves. Rick's been hitting the airwaves for 20 years now with just about every station and every format you can think of... But Country is his true love and that's where he's been for the past 15 years. Most of that has been in Salt Lake City, Utah where he loved to camp, hike, snowboard, but most of all spend time with his family. He's married with 4 beautiful daughters and one handsome son. Oh... and his dog Cali too. She's a mini Pomeranian. Rick loves coaching youth soccer, playing poker, and he's a huge movie guy. You'll often see him at the theaters by himself because he wants to see everything and nobody else does. His true passion??? Playing radio. "I can't believe they pay me to do this. Wow 104.3 has welcomed me and my family with open arms. So excited to make Boise my new home. This city is everything everyone ever told me it was!"
