Mary Beth's BIO
Although Mary Beth grew up in Detroit, it is Toledo that feels like home, especially since she and her husband, Terry, are raising their family here. Their children, Tara, Derek and Cullin were all born here and are all in school now. With grade school, high school and college tuitions all looming, it's no wonder Mary Beth looks forward to many more years working on 101.5 the River. "Miles to go before I sleep!"

Rick has worked in Georgia, Florida, South Carolina, and Texas and been a part of the programming of radio stations in Idaho, New Mexico, Colorado and California.
Before moving to Toledo, Rick was a highly rated morning show host in Greenville, South Carolina for 15 years and was co-host of "Talk of the Town," a 30 minute television travel show for Charter Communications that covered Georgia, North and South Carolina. Rick and his wife Carla moved to Toledo so he could rekindle his love for morning radio.
Rick and Carla have 4 "kids." One is Siamese...Cyan, 6 pounds of furry fury, Grayson, a loveable Gray stray from the Humane society, Frank a mini Dachshund rescue and the latest addition, Bill Blitzen, a rescued Greyhound.. Rick's son, Alex, graduated college in South Carolina and is continuing his education at the Medical College of South Carolina-Charleston.
Rick's continued love for charity work and civic pride keeps him active in the community.
"We've been here for over 7 years now. As Carla and I continue to travel the area, we're amazed at the eagerness of people to welcome us Southerners. We feel like actual Mid- westerners now! We really feel at home."
Have you seen this fan's cancellation of a pizza order and the receipt? Too funny!

Pizza Receipt Shows Intense Vancouver Hockey Fan Cancelled Pick-Up Because Game Was Tied
A picture of the receipt, posted to the r/funny subreddit Saturday by BrandiBean, apparently shows what happens in Canada when a hockey game gets too close to call.
The receipt, originally for one large pizza for pick-up with extra chicken, was cancelled out and turned into a delivery because "canucks have tied game, [customer] cannot leave house to pickup."
While hockey is Canada's national sport, Vancouver Canucks fans are known for being particularly intense. In 2011, a group of Canucks fans drove hundreds of miles to San Jose for Game Four of the Western Conference Finals. As retold by Deadspin, the buddies watched the game and drank a few too many shots of tequila with the team's owner.
The team has also sold out more than 408 consecutive games, the longest current sellout streak in the National Hockey League, according to Bleacher Report.
The fan that ordered this particular large pizza, however, was ultimately not rewarded for his devotion to the game. The Canucks lost Game 2 of their Western Conference quarter-final with the San Jose Sharks in a heart-breaking, 3-2 overtime loss. The two teams face-off again on Sunday, with the Sharks leading the best-of-seven series 2-0.
(No word on whether the delivery man was rewarded with a good tip.)
