Rick Webber has been a broadcaster for nearly 40 years. He started his career in the 1970s while in high school, as an after-school radio DJ in Summerside, PEI. With a father who was an officer in the Canadian Air Force, Webber has seen a lot of the country. His family moved just about every year, from one military base to another. From his hometown of Winnipeg, he moved from the Prairies to Ontario to the Maritimes.
Eventually, Webber’s career brought him to British Columbia. After several years in radio programming and news, he made the move to television, becoming a news anchor/reporter. After stints on the coast and in the Northwest, Rick arrived in the Okanagan and immediately knew this is where he wanted to settle down. He currently produces and anchors the 5PM news on Global Okanagan and supervises newsroom operations as Executive Editor.
Rick’s favorite Okanagan activities include motorcycling, both street and back country, and boating.
