Rick Bulow is the host of "Red, Right, and Blue" and working on starting a page called "Rick Bulow, New Media" as a way of bringing all three of his politically minded blogs under one banner. Labeling himself as a "New School journalist with an Old School attitude," he is passionate about what he does and has fun doing it.

Rick's first brush with radio came in the early 1990's with a short appearance on occasion on WAYJ-FM out of Fort Myers, Florida, when he was in the volunteer center and (memorably) in the studio for a segment at a Share-a-thon, the station's form of a telethon to raise money in the spring and fall, over the span of 4 - 6 years. He was mostly in the volunteer center but made his way into the studio with the Founder of WAY-FM for one segment. Then in the late 1990's he was a memorable caller and part of a show at AM 770 (WWCN which at the time mostly simulcast the shows on WQAM 560 out of Miami) with "The Joe Show with Joe Scott." Rick was known as "Lazy-Eye Larry" and had a few memorable calls and was even in the studio with Joe and his co-host Ryan. When WWCN decided to go all sports and eventually phase out Joe Scott's show, Rick transitioned over to "The Dawg House with Thom Abraham" and was a part of The Dawg House. He even was at the Tuesdays at McDonald's promotions with Thom, who was also known as "The Big Dawg", on occasion. One memorable moment of the Tuesdays at McDonald's happened to be the second installment, which took place on September 11, 2001.1 The $.77 muffin of the day was the Sausage McMuffin, and Rick was about to approach Thom at 8:46 AM Eastern to speak about Chicago Bulls great Michael Jordan coming out of retirement to play for the Washington Wizards when he looked at the shock on Thom's face upon hearing of the first plane crashing into the World Trade Center. At first both Rick and Thom thought nothing of it until the second plane struck at 9:03 AM Eastern. Then Rick knew that America was under attack.

Rick stuck around the Dawg House until 2004 when Thom decided to leave Ft. Myers for Huntsville, Alabama. When Thom left a couple of other Dawg House members (Gene "Da Master" Esposito and "Just" Don Lee) decided to do a show together, building on the success of The Dawg House. So they formed a weekly show on Sundays called "The Chat Room" as a replacement. Rick was a regular caller to the show and on December 19 was a guest in the studio for the entire 2 hour show.

In 2005 Rick started blogging, and from the one blog (Rick's Rants) is now the writer of six blogs, three of which have a political slant and one of them the Red, Right, and Blue show blog where he posts a couple of his rants or entries from his Conservative Blog as show editorials. He would only blog occasionally until 2011 when he had heard Herman Cain was contemplating a run for the Presidency in 2012. As such, he had started a second blog (now called Rick's Conservative Blog) which at first was dedicated to all things Herman Cain until Cain dropped out of the race December 3, 2011.

In 2010, Rick had become a DJ for DreamScape Radio, an online station which is a subsidiary of a chat and role play site called Portal of Dreams and took on the name DJ WaveRider. He named his show "The Wave Cave" and was on the air during the afternoon drive time of 4 - 8 PM Eastern every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday until August, 2011, when Station Management shifted him from Friday to Saturday. He instituted a couple of things in his show to generate audience participation and also to plug his show among the other DJ's with his "Like It or Spike It"which started and ended with his Monday show and also "News of the Weird" every Monday. He also had a "Weekend Mix" where every song dealt with the Weekend or had a kind of a peppy beat to it every Friday at 5 PM and also a "Monday set" where every song dealt with Monday. It was while he was a DJ with Dreamscape that he had decided to integrate Twitter into his show, and as such he would tweet out his playlist every time he was on the air, thereby building a following and introducing different people to Dreamscape Radio and Portal of Dreams.

In 2011 he listened to Conservative Nation Radio (then called Cain Nation Radio) and wanted to go into talk radio. He told the Station Manager of Dreamscape that he is going to resign to try his hand at talk radio and so he left December 3. The way he wanted to leave was not how he had planned it when Herman Cain decided to drop out of the presidential race. On February 25, 2012, Rick premiered on Conservative Nation Radio with his show "Red, Right, and Blue", and talk radio has never been the same.

On January 2, 2013, Rick found out that his show was being cancelled on Conservative Nation Radio. Later that day Justin Kendall had offered him a spot at the Own The Narrative Network full time since they had been simulcasting his shows. He accepted the offer, and his premiere on Own The Narrative was January 5.
