Ron Horan

Coordinator of Underwriting Sales

Ron Horan As WDCB’s Coordinator of Underwriting Sales, Ron works with corporations (both non-profits and for-profits) that support WDCB in exchange for on-air announcements. Businesses receive on-air acknowledgment of their donation in the form of 20-second announcements. Through these announcements, WDCB listeners learn about and are encouraged to visit these supportive businesses. Underwriting messages follow guidelines that communicate with the listener in a positive way and adhere to FCC rules.

For Ron, it all began over forty years ago at WHFH-FM, operated by Homewood-Flossmoor High School. After high school he attended SIU where he majored in Radio-TV. During his career he has worked on-air, in sales and sales management at various radio stations throughout the Midwest (including six years in cable television advertising). Always forward-thinking, Ron is an early adapter of new media, incorporating events, digital and social media into client marketing plans.

Ron and his wife of 30+ years live in Elgin. They enjoy going out to restaurants and concerts. Their favorite destination to get away is Door County. The kids are all grown, have moved out, and are doing well. It’s very quiet.
