Today is my last day, at KIZN KISSIN 92.3


These words, were surreal to type............

Today is my last day, at KISSIN 92.3.

When I started to write this, time just stopped. I froze. Almost 3 years in the Treasure Valley feels more like 10 years to me. The overwhelming memories, amazing adventures I’ve been a part of, all the wonderful people I’ve met & become friends with, it’s just incredible to process.


To my Cumulus Boise radio family,



Thank you to my amazing and talented Program Director Hank Aaron, who saw and believed in my talent, who coached me, pushed me, and taught me to walk out that door everyday, even on the worst ones, to give it my all.


Thank you to our awesome morning team, Cory & Shawnda, for treating me like family, literally, taking me in as a adopted brother.


A special thank you to Shawnda, and her husband Dave, for helping me through some tough personal challenges, you two mean the world to me.


I can’t mention everyone in already really long letter, but to all the radio professionals, who work in this building, thank you for all fun memories, friendships, and support. I’m proud, to call all of you my friends.


Also, a special thank you to our leaders at Cumulus: Mike McVay, John Dimick, Doug Hammand, Greg Frey, Christina Albee, Suzy Schultz and Mary Berner for your incredible leadership, and personal support at my time with Cumulus. Thank you.


The memories are all flooding back as I type this.


So many, amazing listeners are what make KISSIN 92.3 a wonderful place to work. I saw many of you at 3 absolutely awesome Jackson Country Stomps. Hundreds of you showed up at dozens and dozens of ticket stops, where I got to talk and get to know you.


Also, the 3 awesome Mountain Home Country Music Fest’s, where you get to camp out and hang with fans!


So many HUGE concerts, where y’all showed up and showed us why the Treasure Valley is an

amazing country music destination.


What’s most amazing to me, is how this community raised thousands and thousands of dollars for Keep Kids Warm, the generosity displayed still blows my mind.


This experience is honestly, not about me. It’s all about YOU. Thank you, for letting me into your world, your community, and into your lives every afternoon for the last 3 years. “Life changing”, are the two words that come to my mind, when I try to summarize my time here.


This is bittersweet as they say. But I always try to move forward with positives.

I’ll be departing soon to my next new and exciting adventure.


Most importantly this puts me incredibly closer to my 5 beautiful & amazing kids. It’s no secret, I’ve been missing them the last few months. They have been my rock, and 100% supportive of my adventure in Idaho.


Aren’t kids amazing? They teach us more, than we teach them.


They understood the importance of their dad having the courage to try something new, chase your dreams, and do what God gave you as a talent and calling. They honestly, had more courage than I did through all this.


I can't thank enough Gabby, Gracie, Sophie, Makayla and Carter, for the amazing love and support, they give me every single day. I love you so much, my angels.

Now, on to the radio side of all of this change.


I am leaving in 3 weeks to pursue a new radio challenge, which I will be announcing in the next couple of weeks.


I would love to stay in touch with my Treasure Valley family.


Let’s follow each other’s adventures! Of course my Facebook Page, Twitter & Instagram are always a good place to reach me. I’ll list these links below.


Once again, thank you Treasure Valley, and all of Idaho! You’ve made this the best place to live, work, and play in the world! I’ll miss y’all so much.


Whomever lands in the KISSIN 92.3 Afternoon Chair next, is in for a ride of a lifetime!


Love y’all,


- Rick
