Rich Rushforth

Rich hails from New York and migrated south to earn his degree from UNC Greensboro. From there..the shady pines, greens, fairways and microphone brought him to Moore County. As Rich Puts it, “being host to the morning airwaves here for 25+ years has put me in the company of some amazing people — who make our community the best place in the world to live”.

Rich’s children are of the four-legged variety. But, he is the favorite uncle to 2 nieces and 3 nephews. He keeps busy with golf, fishing, friends and family.

Rich is dedicated to the Sandhills community, and he also loves a great adventure. Checked off…so far…on his bucket list are: NASCAR laps at 180MPH, parasailing, and a few jumps out of airplanes.
