Sean Keith Rima (born c. 1968) is a talk show host for KTSA radio in San Antonio, Texas, one of the oldest stations in the United States. He broadcasts from a conservative and libertarian viewpoint the drive-time program weekdays from 4:05 to 7 p.m. His local colleagues are Trey Ware, host of the morning news from 5:05 to 9 a.m., and Jack Riccardi, broadcaster of the morning program from 9:05 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Rima was born in the capital city of Annapolis, Maryland, and graduated from Broadneck Senior High School there. He attended Anne Arundel Community College in nearby Arnold in Anne Arundel County, Maryland. Prior to his move to San Antonio in 2011, with Alpha Media, the parent company of KTSA, Rima worked for a dozen radio stations, including ones in the capital cities of Denver and Austin, where he met the cowboy humorist Kinky Friedman, and in Los Angeles, California. He describes his program as “High-Wire Radio, where I do as little planning as possible, so my Inner-Clown can run amok.” He has formerly resided in Colorado Springs, Castle Rock, and Larkspur, Colorado; Easton in Talbot County, Maryland, and Newark in New Castle County, Delaware.
Rima published a novel in 2017, Pretty Bags of Meat, about a Latina police officer in San Antonio who is targeted by a killer, and four collections of poetry, including his 2013 Snake Farm Blues: A Texas Love Song. He is married and has one daughter, Avery, and two stepchildren. When possible, he goes tubing on the Comal River north of San Antonio and listening to country music; he is a great admirer of Willie Nelson though the two do not share political philosophies.
In his blog "The Daily Dump", Rima spoke out against the renaming of Robert E. Lee High School at 1400 Jackson-Keller in San Antonio as L. E. E. ("Legacy of Educational Excellence") High School. All seven trustees of the North East Independent School District voted to remove the name of Confederate General Robert E. Lee from the school.
On October 20, 2017, Rima, while substituting for Trey Ware, reminded listeners that he had opposed the administration of Barack H. Obama throughout the eight years of the Obama presidency.
