Rik & Gin In the Mornin’


Hi…I’m Rik! Although I grew up here in Peoria (Whittier, St. Mark’s, Old Spalding High), most of my adult life was spent on the radio in Springfield. But, alas, I am back in the River City! I am a Father of three boys, ages 19, 16 and 10….which means my weekends are video games, movies (big Star Wars nerd!!!), computers and THE PIZZA RANCH!!! Cardinals baseball, Cowboys football and College basketball do it for me. However, I have been known to sing some karaoke, watch a musical or a chick flick too. I love helpin’ you get on your way in the Mornin’ with info, good conversation, and some fun and games. We might even make ya think a little bit!!! Make sure to tune in to Rik and Gin in the Mornin’ weekdays from 6 til 9 am on 101.1 JACK FM!


After realizing I was way too young to retire…thanks to Botox…I have decided to return to my radio roots! Married for over 8 years to my Saint of a husband Jim (he paid me to say that) and we both love traveling, hanging out with friends, running, cycling and doing Crossfit. We both enjoy the great outdoors a little differently… Jim enjoys doing yard work and I enjoy watching with a cold drink in my hand! I am addicted to all things Starbucks, and my mission is to find the line between not enough coffee and too much coffee. (I usually over-do my caffeine intake) I am so excited to be a part of Rik & Gin in the Mornin’ and to be a part of the AMP radio family. The thing I’m looking forward to the most is talking with all of you and sharing our crazy life stories every day on 101.1 JACK FM!
