While visiting Los Angeles in 1994 to host a movie junket for a St. Louis television station, Newton — then a local disc jockey known as Rikk Idol — used the last of his travel money to hire a taxi to take him to the offices of various agents around Hollywood. He eventually signed with Abrams, Rubaloff, & Lawrence and was tapped as a host on E! Entertainment Television in 1995.

He hosted Hasbro Studios' popular Family Game Night and the syndicated Monopoly Milionaires' Club.

Newton has also hosted such productions including GSN's Hollywood Showdown, Made in the USA, World's Wildest Game Shows, and Whammy! The All-New Press Your Luck.
