Rick Campanelli

Rick Campanelli (born January 5, 1970) was the winner of the 1994 MuchMusic
MuchTemp contest. He was introduced to the MuchMusic viewers in 1996. Originally nicknamed "The Temp" or, famously, "Rick the Temp", Campanelli's boyish charm, personal and laid back approach made him an instant favourite among Much viewers. Campanelli has since been labeled "The Franchise" for his long tenure and high popularity while on MuchMusic. He was a MuchMusic Video Jockey, co- of "Much on Demand: Primetime", writer of "The MuchMusic Countdown" and co-host of "The MuchMusic Radio Countdown".

Campanelli grew up in Hamilton, Ontario. He attended St. Mary's High School and then Brock University where he earned an honours degree in physical education.

In the video game NHL 2005, Campanelli is featured in the free agent pool.

Campanelli's final appearance on MuchMusic was August 26, 2005, on "MuchOnDemand". He was subsequently announced as one of the reporters for "ET Canada", a new Canadian licensee of "Entertainment Tonight", which was launched on September 12, 2005.

Campanelli was also a game announcer for the Hamilton Tiger-Cats, a CFL team, for the 2004-2005 season.

In early 2007, Campanelli hosted the "Canada's Case Game" segments on Global's "Deal or No Deal Canada", during that series' first limited run.
