Born and raised in Philadelphia and South Jersey, Rick is thrilled to come back to the Northeast!
Before moving to Baltimore, Rick was the Collier County bureau chief reporter at WBBH in Naples, Fla. He was there for nearly two years and covered major stories, such as a violent string of statewide home invasions and an FBI crackdown on Medicare fraud. He also pitched in with the station’s investigative unit on several pieces and exposed a county administrator caught drinking alcohol and driving his county vehicle.
Rick started his career at WMGM-TV in Atlantic City, N.J., where he was a news and sports reporter/anchor.
He graduated from Widener University in Pennsylvania with a degree in communications. During college, he started all four years for the university’s football team as a wide receiver and was selected to play in a national all-star game in Salem, Va.
Rick lives in the city with his wife. They love spending time with their family, friends and uncovering everything Baltimore has to offer!
