Yet, what started off as a one-off experiment propelled Roland to hosting 'Roland's Food Court' since 2013, and he's been loving every minute of it. The audience has as well. Roland's vast knowledge of the fine dining, food tasting, and the food industry is what makes his 'food court' an unique treat.

He’s done everything in radio from cleaning shit off the KROCK station van to hosting some of the biggest events in the world. In addition to hearing Covino on Covino & Rich, you can hear him shamelessly promoting himself every night on SiriusXM Octane.
Don’t let his handsome looks fool you, he’s the cheesiest doofus out there. Rich is a wolf in sheep’s clothing, spending his days trying the latest workout trends that 22 year old girls are into, and satisfying his ADD with gambling and trashy TV.

Rich can also be heard sweating Taylor Swift on Hits 1 and as the voice of a little millennial boy on Pop2k.

Mark Zito’s friend may have summed it up best. “I think people will find you funny. But I don’t think that anyone can truly like you until they’ve had the opportunity to hate you on their own terms first.” If that’s the case, a lot of people should LOVE Mark Zito. Zito has worked at SiriusXM since 2009 when he became the youngest talk host in the history of the company with the launch of “Mark Zito’s College Radio on Satellite Radio.” When not hosting "This Is Happening," Zito produces events for the company around the country. In addition to scaling Everest at age 11 and dating Beyonce, he serves as a prime example of why you should not let people write their own bios in the third person.
Ryan Sampson is a longtime host on SiriusXM. He began his radio career while attending high school in his hometown of Titusville, PA, when he was hired as a part time news anchor on WTIV-AM.

In that role, he has helped launch the pop careers of artists like Taylor Swift and Selena Gomez and has interviewed and made headlines with numerous A list celebrities. “This Is Happening” is the first time Sampson has teamed up with Mark Zito for a talk show, but they have been practicing by yelling at each other for years.
