Rick: My heart goes out to children who are experiencing challenges in life whether it's physical, emotional or otherwise! I'll do whatever I can do to make their early years more enjoyable.
Rick: The day I stepped into MuchMusic... I realized that I wanted to work in television.
Rick: My MuchMusic gig was a dream come true... I thought it couldn't get any better than that. But since making the move to ET Canada - I'm equally amazed. It's like 'Oh my gosh, another show I grew up watching after school' -- it just doesn't make sense!
