RON RILEY

December 1, 2019 - 3:00 PM

Ron Riley began his career as a radio disc-jockey at small stations in Wisconsin and Illinois. His first major market job was in Milwaukee, and he eventually went on to land his dream job as an on-air personality at WLS 890 Radio in his hometown of Chicago. The station was a coast-to-coast AM giant in the era of great Rock and Roll music (see Ron Riley YouTube), and Riley had the opportunity to MC many concerts for bands like the Beatles. Riley switched his media career to TV when he was offered a job hosting "Bowling for Dollars" on Baltimore's Channel 11 in the 1970s. Along the way, opportunities to fill in as a weather at WBAL TV helped launch his career in broadcast meteorology.
