KGO 810 Radio had a big press release on Tuesday, January 16, 2018 (read below).
This is my response:
Today I honor our legendary broadcaster Ronn Owens. His voice has been an institution on the great KGO 810 for 42 years in the late morning. I am proud to now be joining the greater San Francisco Bay Area in that time slot.
Ronn was one of the first people I met when I came from the Santa Cruz market. He was warm, congenial, and very supportive in my new home on the air.
I will do my best to entertain and inform as a warmup to the new Ronn Owens Report you’ll hear every day at 12:50pm.
Together we can laugh while helping each other improve our lives and making the world a better place.
