Before joining Elevated Radio, Rick began his radio career overnights at WBAB/Long Island, NY.  But it was clear early on that he wouldn’t be satisfied with that. After snaring his first full-time job at 96 K-Rock Ft. Myers, Fl. he was off and running hosting nights, writing and creating comedy bits including bits featured on “The Howard Stern Show” and “Love Phones”.  From there it was back to NY, more specifically NYC as Executive Producer for “the Opie & Anthony Show” the newest show at WNEW FM NYC. During this time, he was also tapped as the Host of Comedy Central’s internet radio station and hosted “Stand Up Sitdown”. After 5 years of incredible growth, syndication and mayhem, the show was “CANCELLED” (google it for yourself) and it was off to Philadelphia at legendary Y-100 and the Preston & Steve Show. His success there led him back to NYC to the premiere Hip Hop radio station in the world HOT97

After a high profile and stunning exit (again, google it for yourself) he was imported to San Francisco to co-host on WILD949 FM and then to create the EFFER Show on 1069 Free FM. From there he landed at American Comedy Network, writing and voicing comedy for morning radio shows around the country. But Miami would come calling and he landed a coveted spot on the Paul and Young Ron show. After returning to NY one more time he created the “Ugly American Radio Show”a talk show focusing on politics, pop culture and more at  In 2013 Rick stepped away from radio to focus on developing and pitching TV show ideas with his writing partner comedian Brad Trackman and currently has several shows under consideration. He also runs the FB page for his dog Harrison Ford the Boxer.
