Ron's Wife Judy's Presentation to WIEL
April 26, 2007

On April 10th, Ron was inducted into the Kentucky Journalism Hall of Fame in Lexington. He was, in fact, given two plaques honoring his induction. In receiving these identical awards, his wife Judy did exactly what Ron would have done had he been present-she presented one to the radio station where he performed the bulk of his extraordinary brand of journalistic broadcasting...WIEL.
