Re: Ron Cameron

As I've noted in these pages, Ron would rely on the artifice of callers from "the insurance company" on his Friday, 1460 show. Without guests, (many) callers or access to Alex and Matt's email account, Ron would fill up the 2 hours from 9-11 by regularly turning to his insurance company callers. As ...

Re: Ron Cameron

If he does, you just know that - even without any advance notice of his 1st show - Ron would still rely on his legion of insurance company callers, who, of course, are only allowed to call in with their questions before the show begins! This loyal core of listeners would, somehow, know that Ron's sh...

Re: Ron Cameron

Any sightings of Ron? At a Wings game? Ram's Horn? I can only imagine his head exploding at the news of the Drummond trade ("who's going to rebound?") and the fact that the Pistons just gave him away. Ron never could wrap his head around the fact that the NBA had changed since his heyday, when Wilt ...

Re: Ron Cameron

Since getting callers seems to be a recurring problem, I guess I never fully appreciated Ron’s genius in creating a never-ending supply of callers from the insurance company. And he gave them a back story, too. They couldn’t be on show (9-11), but were allowed to call in before the show with their s...

Re: Ron Cameron

If Anthony Fenech is no longer the Freep’s Tigers beat reporter - as Ron mentioned in one of his last shows - why does Fenech, have a Tigers Mailbag online today from Lakeland?

Re: Ron Cameron

Yeah, I don’t think we’ll ever see a sports talk host to refer - without irony - to his audience as sports fans, as in, “sports fans, give me a call.”

Re: Ron Cameron

It's days like today that Ron's calm, steadying voice is most sorely missed. But it's safe to say that his first reaction to the news of Kobe's death would, as always, to make it about him and say, "I never met him."

Re: Ron Cameron

And what happened to the (related?) representation that Ron was meeting with WJR?!

Re: Ron Cameron

They've been on during this time slot before, only to be replaced by reruns of Ron's show. And Ron's podcasts remain on the site. So who knows what's going on. His show may be re-run tonight, too,

In a hat tip to Cowboy, Ron, were he still alive, would be turning 75 today.

Re: Ron Cameron

With Ron's podcasts still on the station's site, will WDTK air yet another rerun of Ron's last in-studio shows?! Where we can once again hear Ron tell Matt to not "come in" on him, as well as Ron's incredible claim that his loss of Cory Lidle was comparable to Denny's loss of his wife.

Can't wait for Ron's prime time special in which he announces where he's taking his talents.

Re: Ron Cameron

In terms of making money, why would a bartered show on WJR be any different than one on WDTK, or any of the various stations Ron has hung his hat over the years?

Re: Ron Cameron

Ron, quite proudly he claims, hasn't had a non-brokered radio job in 40 years, since his WXYZ days, so I doubt any WJR gig would be other than brokered. He's not replacing Paul W. Wouldn't it be ironic if all the buzz from this board - all for the wrong reasons, of course - has given Ron's career so...

Re: Ron Cameron

I’ll say. Maybe this is his chance to avenge those he’s claimed were stabbed in the back by Frank Beckmann.

Re: Ron Cameron

Ron’s podcasts remain on the site. WDTK should realize that no replacement is going to bring more interest than Ron does. Even if for the wrong reasons.
