KUHF says goodbye to one-of-a-kind radio news anchor, Rod Rice

Longtime KUHF news anchor and reporter Rod Rice is retiring after 43 years in the radio news business. Rice has spent more than 12 years at KUHF, most recently as the local Morning Edition news anchor. Previously, he was the station’s All Things Considered host and anchor and also served as a reporter at KUHF. Rice has been on the air in Houston since 1991, serving as a news anchor at 740 KTRH over two periods between his time at KUHF. He started his career as a disc jockey in Pottsville, Pennsylvania in 1970. “Rod is a one-of-a-kind radio news anchor,” says KUHF News Director Jack Williams. “We’re going to miss his humor and knowledge in the newsroom, but are happy that he’s starting a new adventure.” Rice’s last day on the air is Friday. KUHF expects to name his replacement within the next couple of weeks.

Valerie Lawhorn and Matt Prendergast put together a video tribute to Rod Rice.
