Ron had the nick name "Marathon Man" because he had a shift following Tall Paul that ran from 8 Am to 2 PM. He was asked to take over a Saturday AM talk show when another announcer, "Dapper Dan" left to return to Montgomery. Ron MC'd "Sound Off" from '76 to '78. He is a graduate of the Howard University School of Communications. He began broadcasting on campus in 1974 at WHUR. He has been a broadcaster with WATV since the early 1980's.
