The Ron & Ron Show

A stand-up comedian Ron Bennington joined radio veteran Ron Diaz to create the wildly popular radio program, The Ron & Ron Show, at Tampa Bay’s WYNF-FM in 1987. This show had huge ratings success and Ron & Ron known as Radio’s Bad Boys then partnered with their agent Ross Reback to form The Ron & Ron Radio Network so as to own and syndicate the programming. This show’s final broadcast for WYNF was on March 12, 1993. Reback became President and CEO of the newly formed network and quickly negotiated a deal to broadcast the show in Miami, FL, Orlando, FL, and Jacksonville, FL with another dozen markets soon following.

He announced his departure on-air from The Ron & Ron Show in early 1997, and on September 29, 1997, after a successful 11-year run the show ended.

Without Diaz, and under Paxson, the show soon floundered, and on September 29, 1997, after a successful 11-year run.
