Rick Standish is a radio shock jock at the WKRD radio in Cincinnati who is said to do anything that will attract listeners, ideology notwithstanding.
Right after that, he began airing challenges and clued sent by Madcap, ostensibly directed at the Ghost. He proceeded to continually suggest that if the Ghost didn't respond to the challenge it would be out of covardice.
Later on the same day, he was shown "interviewing" -- in an aggressive and insulting manner -- a docent at the University of Ohio's "Weird Science" exhibit, the likely target of Madcap. When Madcap appears, he ridicules her costume. He attempts, but fails, to push the Silver Ghost into a direct confrontation with Madcap. 
On 2006-11-13, he aired a call from Madcap herself, with a new riddle/challenge for the Silver Ghost. After Madcap attacked the Humanity First! Community Access room, he started pressuring H1! regarding the safety (or rather, the lack thereof) of their exhibits.
