Rick Semmler became the sports director at WTHI in August 2009. Rick feels truly blessed to have covered sports in the Wabash Valley. He has seen some incredible games and great athletes while in the Valley.
Some of those great moments include Washington winning the 2005 Class 3A state basketball championship on a half-court shot from Luke Zeller, Wayne Newton Post 346 advancing to the American Legion World Series, Shakamak winning the 2008 Class A state baseball championship, and the latest with Josh Phegley, Brady Shoemaker, and Nick Ciolli all getting drafter by the Chicago White Sox.
Rick came to the Wabash Valley in July 2003, where he spent six years at WTWO as a sports anchor and reporter. Before that, he spent one year in Hazard, Kentucky as a sports reporter and photographer.
Rick is a graduate of Ball State University with a telecommunications degree. He is married to his high school sweetheart, Robin. They reside in Terre Haute with their daughter, Savannah.
