Rick Amato Biography

Rick Amato is the host of 'The Rick Amato Show', a Washington Times columnist, columnist, political commentator, contributor to KUSI television in San Diego and frequent guest on CNN. Rick's Washington Times articles are often picked up and quoted by websites and blog sites worldwide and become hot topics of discussion on cable news shows such as Lou Dobbs.

'The Rick Amato Show' exists is to make a difference in the lives of people during times of injustice.

Whether it be a young 22 year old American soldier in Iraq facing questionable allegations of wrong doing without adequate money for proper legal representation, or a youth center for under privileged kids being threatened with closure due to the arrogance of eminent domain…he makes a difference by exposing an issue, raising awareness… and calling people to action.

Rick Amato believes that increasingly middle-class Americans feel under represented, under appreciated and overwhelmed as lobbyists and special interest groups gain greater influence in Washington, as the integrity of the U.S. borders are viewed as a mere inconvenience in the flow of global trade and as nameless faceless government bureaucracies become more intrusive in to the personal lives of every day people.

The show's tagline is: Common Sense with Rick Amato. Real People...Real Issues...In Real Time.

He received his first ever radio experience by co-hosting 'The Business Of Sports' along side Jim Rome, America's premeir sports radio personality.

His background also includes having had worked as a Financial Advisor for the Wall Street firm Merrill Lynch. He is the founder and President of Amato Wealth Management Group, a financial advisory boutique which in 2006 was named The Top Financial Advisory Firm in La Jolla, California by The La Jolla Light newspaper.

He has spoken on Capitol Hill to members of the U.S. Congress regarding the Financial Modernization bill, has been invited by athletic departments of Division I universities to address graduating student-athletes, spoken to active and retired NFL players, as well as various business leaders.

He was born in the western Pennsylvania steel town of Sharon, PA and raised in Pittsburgh. He is the grandson of Italian and German immigrants.

His hobbies include sports, travel, cooking and reading. He has a blue belt in the sport of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu where he has trained under former world champion and personal friend Rodrigo Medeiros.
