Television, entertainment and physical fitness have been lifelong passions for Rich. After earning a degree, in radio and television, from the University of Northern Iowa, Rich headed to New York and started his career as an intern on the long-running soap opera "Another World". He then moved to Los Angeles where he spent the next 15 years becoming one of L.A.'s top professional fitness trainers. During that time, he also built and ran the gym at the world-famous Riviera Country Club. Rich also kept creating, producing and selling ideas for television shows: "NASCAR: Uncut" for ESPN, "Listener" for Brillstein-Grey Entertainment, "PINKS", "PINKS: ALL OUT", "Drag Race High" and "Pass Time" for the SPEED Channel, and "Won and Done" for MavTV. When PINKS first started, Rich could not afford to hire a host. He was forced to give it a try, and over the next several years he became among the most recognized TV personalities in all of motorsports around the world. His creations earned Fox Sports well over $100 million to date.
