Yes, Virginia, There Is a Santa Claus[CD]
Rich Renik, a native Chicagoan, has been involved with music since six years of age when he began accordion lessons. That love of music culminated when he landed his first radio job in Fairbanks, Alaska while serving in the U.S. Army in 1968. Since his honorable discharge from the service in 1970, Rich has been a fixture in Chicago radio with shows airing on such stations such as WMAQ-AM (NBC), where he performed for thirteen years. Additional on-air stints included the Satellite Music Network, Interstate Radio Network and participation in numerous television fund raising activities for Public Television, Muscular Dystrophy and the Easter Seals Foundation. For fifteen years, Rich was heard on Chicago's - WUSN 99.5FM (US99), and now is proud to be on Your Hometown Country Station - WCCQ (98.3) - playing all of the music you know and love! Rich has recorded two narrative record projects - a narrative album in Nashville, Tennessee and a single release of 'Yes, Virginia, There Is A Santa Claus', backed with 'The Night Before Christmas'. Rich is also a published author. In 2004, Rich wrote a leadership book, entitled, 'Engaging Employees in the Business of Success', which is available on various inter-net sites - including Amazon.com. Rich can be heard as the voice on the Illinois Department of Transportation Traffic Information radio system as well as the voice of Pro-Football Weekly with Dan Hampton. Rich is married to Barbara and lives in Orland Park, and is the proud Grandfather of nine children (with another on the way in May)! While his principle hobbies are SCUBA diving and Sky diving, his passion remains music.
