Tuesday - Rick Campanelli at 8:20
Rick was raised in Hamilton, ON, and graduated from Brock University with a degree in Physical Education. MuchMusic was having a contest to find a new summer temp, Rick entered and landed his first broadcasting job. For 10 years Rick chatted with the biggest names in the music industry, and despite a love for groups like the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Pearl Jam, in 2005 Rick left MuchMusic for the launch of Entertainment Tonight Canada on Global. When Rick isn’t interviewing Hollywood heavy hitters, you just might find Rick in remote places inside Africa or South America doing charity work, or zip lining in Costa Rica, rock climbing in the Arizona desert or swimming with sharks in the Caribbean. Rick’s always challenging himself for a good story!
