Two hours of the hottest stars, entertainers and celebrities to his microphones. Referred to as The Tonight Show of radio Ron Seggi began his professional career over fifty years ago at the age of fourteen. However, the love between "Ron and Radio" actually began at the age of seven, when his father took him to visit a radio station. At the age of eleven, Ron built his own radio studio in the basement of his families' home, that could be heard for several blocks. Three years later, Ron acquired his first Disc Jockey job at a commercial radio station. The following year, he was named the Music Director, in addition to his on-air responsibilities. By the time he graduated from high school, Ron already had many years of on-air experience During college, Ron worked full-time as an announcer for both radio and television (in his hometown of Erie, Pennsylvania). In addition, he made numerous personal appearances at record hops and emceed beauty pageants, rock concerts and variety shows. Throughout his career, Ron has donated literally thousands of hours of public service time to such causes as the American Heart Association, the American Cancer Society, St. Jude Children's Hospital, the United Way, the March of Dimes, Shriners Childrens Hospitals and the Kiwanis and Rotary Clubs. In 1972, Ron embarked on a singing career, putting together a successful nightclub act. It was during this time that he recorded twelve records, five of which were released nationally and two were nominated for Grammy Awards. He has also performed as a warm-up act for several internationally known performers. In 1978, Ron opened his own full service advertising agency, which he operated for two years, until he purchased his first radio station. At age twenty-nine, Ron became the owner of WSEG-FM. Over the six years that he owned the station, he hired several of the announcers that he used to admire as a child. In 1986, he sold his radio station (WSEG) to the owner of the radio station that his father first took him to visit when he was seven. In 1987, he purchased radio station WIPC in Central Florida. After spending so many years as an owner/operator, Ron decided in 1990 to go back to the roots of the business he loved. That meant a return to the airwaves. It was always his goal to do a show on a national level and that opportunity afforded itself, when on December 31, 1990, THE RON SEGGI SHOW-live from-UNIVERSAL STUDIOS FLORIDA, debuted nationwide, via satellite. Since the shows inception, Ron has interviewed over 20,000 guests and has broadcast his show from all over the country. His production company, located at UNIVERSAL STUDIOS FLORIDA for 23 years, was active in many radio and television productions. Ron had the honor of being tapped by Ed McMahon, one of the entertainment industry biggest names, to be Ed's announcer on his television show, "STAR SEARCH". As Ron puts' it, "the supreme compliment is when the ultimate announcer asks you to be his announcer." The friendship between Ron and Ed evolved into a business partnership, which in addition to radio and television broadcast projects, included a nightclub act, that toured the country. Ron is a graduate of Gannon University, with a BA degree in Business Administration, with a major in Marketing and a minor in Economics. He has won several awards for his business and public service involvement. He and his wife Claudia, who is the Vice President of his company, World Broadcasting, Inc. were married in 1973 . They have two sons, Scott who was born in 1976 and Christopher who was born in 1979. Christopher and his wife Kristin have made Ron and Claudia very happy with two lovely Grandchildren, Dominic 5 and Gianna 3. On January 8, 2001 Ron was bestowed a unique honor. The flag of the United States of America, flew on the Nations' Capital in Washington, D.C., to commemorate forty years of service in the radio and television industry. After the flag was taken down, it was given to Ron, as a tribute to this monumental occasion.
