Senninger/Singer/Wright is Exposed by Mainstream Press

george_knapp_Investigates-001Here in Las Vegas, like in many other larger cities, there are investigative reporters attached to a few of the local television stations.  Among the most respect (or feared, depending on your viewpoint) is George Knapp, Chief Investigate Reporter for 8 News Now, the local CBS station.

George also writes for Las Vegas CityLife, one of several well-read weeklies here in town.  On September 5th, Knapp exposed Rick Singer (Richard Senninger) with an article titles, TV host’s past catches up with him.

From the article:

The full story of Singer/Senninger/Lester/Wright/Vegas’ exploits could fill a book. Suffice to say, he was taken off the air in Florida after numerous stories of financial improprieties arose, including allegations that Rick failed to pay employees and vendors, bounced checks, committed outright larceny. At about the same time, he was arrested under a warrant from Michigan, where he was wanted for failure to pay child support. Some might say the crimes are not that heinous, but if you read comments posted online by people who claim they were victimized by Singer — lives ruined, homes lost, bank accounts fleeced — it paints a very grim picture.

[Care of Black and White Website]

Rick “Wright” Senninger, executive producer and host of the radio program Outside The Wire was arrested and booked at the St. John’s County Jail in Saint Augustine, Florida on a Count 1 Larceny charge Wednesday.

According to a phone conversation with a Florida state attorney fraud investigator, Senninger also has bench warrants issued on him in Michigan for non payment of child support. Additional charges may be pending.

Senninger will be extradited to Michigan.

According to The St. Augustine Record:

A St. Augustine radio personality who has a nationally syndicated show is in the St. Johns County jail awaiting return to Michigan on a larceny charge, according to the St. Johns Sheriff’s Office.

Richard Senninger, 51, who is known on air as Rick Wright, anchors “Outside the Wire” on WFOY 1240 in St. Augustine. He wasn’t on the air Wednesday night and station owner Kristine Phillips said he “most definitely” isn’t going to be back on

Phillips said the St. Johns Sheriff’s Office told her of Wright’s arrest at his Palencia home around 1:45 p.m. and that he wouldn’t be on the air Wednesday.

“I started getting calls from former colleagues who told me about not getting paid and his passing bad checks. So things had sort of come to a head with us,” she said, noting he owned her a “pretty substantial amount.” St. Johns County Sheriff’s spokesman Kevin Kelshaw said Senninger was picked up on a larceny by conversion charge out of Iosco County, Mich.

Wright is being held at the local jail without bond and is expected to appear before a judge this morning.
