As host of Rick Dees Weekly Top 40, Dees is heard on more than 400 stations across the country and 70 countries worldwide. In addition, he is the immensely popular host of the Rick Dees Morning Show on KIIS/Los Angeles, where he has dominated radio since 1982.
In a city known for its legendary radio personalities, Rick Dees is one of the most successful. Dees is more of an entertainer than a music presenter, for his shows are filled with bits of "inspired madness" that make listening to his inventive interruptions almost as enjoyable as hearing the music he plays. His lively on-air presence is a major reason why Dees has received 15 consecutive "Radio Personality of the Year" awards from Billboard.
Dees was raised in Greensboro, North Carolina, and earned a degree in TV, radio, and motion pictures from the University of North Carolina. When challenged by a fellow student to audition for a radio show, Dees accepted, won the job, and has been on the air ever since.
