In 2013, readers of the Horry Independent, Myrtle Beach Herald, and Carolina Forest Chronicle newspapers named Rusty "favorite TV personality."

Rusty graduated from the Philip Merrill College of Journalism at the University of Maryland in 2002. In 2009, Rusty was named a Distinguished Graduate by his alma mater, Linganore High School, in Frederick, Maryland.

When not at work, you can find Rusty enjoying sports, including ACC football and basketball (Go Terps!), and NASCAR. Rusty and his wife, Sarah, along with their daughter, Shelby, live near Myrtle Beach, along with their friendly little cat, Frida.
