Campanelli attended school in St. Catharines. He attended Brock University, earning a degree in physical education.

Campanelli was introduced to the MuchMusic viewers as the winner of MuchMusic's 1994 MuchTemp contest. Originally he was nicknamed "The Temp" (or, famously, "Rick the Temp"). Campanelli has since been labeled "The Franchise" for his long tenure and high popularity while on MuchMusic. In addition to being a video jockey, he also co-hosted Much on Demand, The MuchMusic Countdown and The MuchMusic Radio Countdown.

Campanelli's final appearance on MuchMusic was August 26, 2005, on MuchOnDemand. He was subsequently announced as one of the reporters for ET Canada, a new Canadian licensee of Entertainment Tonight, which was launched on September 12, 2005.

In early 2007, Campanelli hosted the Canada's Case Game segments on Global's Deal or No Deal Canada, during that series' first limited run.

Campanelli is involved with several charitable organizations including World Vision Canada, Tuberous Sclerosis, Big Brothers/Big Sisters, McMaster Children's Hospital, and Kids Help Phone. On May 27, 2009, he hosted the Youth and Philanthropy Initiative in Toronto.

In February 2016, Toronto radio station CFNY-FM announced that Campanelli will join the station as co-host with Fred Kennedy and Melanie Mariani of the station's morning show, beginning June 27. Later that year, he made a cameo appearance in the music video for James Barker Band's "Just Sayin'".

In July 2017, it was announced that Campanelli would depart as co-host of ET Canada after 12 years when his contract ended in summer 2017. He appeared on ET Canada through August 2017.

In 2021, it was announced that Campanelli would join his former MuchMusic colleague Monika Deol to co-host 90's Nostalgia, a five-city Canadian concert tour featuring such artists as Aqua and Eiffel 65. Campanelli discussed this role during a visit to the Toronto Mike'd Podcast.
