Ron Roberts is joining AmericaOne Radio in Atlanta.

The Ron Show will air weeknights at 5:00 PM on the city’s progressive outlet. Roberts says he’s happy to offer a counter to the conservative domination of talk radio.

“The talk radio format is saturated with conservative voices, with the industry having little to no room for a reasoned response from a liberal/progressive perspective,” says Roberts. “My aim is to bring some balance to the dialogue by adding my voice to the fray. I’m a lifelong southern liberal, and know, from my travels throughout the southeast, that there are a lot more of us out there being drowned out by all the shouting from the other side. My goal is to provide a platform for them, and to rationally spell out how our nation’s problems are solvable with substantive ideas and conversation, instead of demonization and division. Make no mistake, though; I’m not holding back punches and I’ll call out bullshit when I see it, too. The future of this country, democracy in general, and the world on the whole, are all on the line.” 

Roberts, a 25-year radio veteran, will make his first entry into talk when his show premieres today.

Launched in 2020, AmericaOne in Atlanta airs several left-leaning shows. The station bills itself as bringing “a Progressive voice to the overly crowded radio landscape.

Mike Gallagher spent his Monday radio show broadcasting from various locations around southwest Florida after Hurricane Ian ravaged areas of the region last week.

Gallagher has partnered with Food For The Poor, a non-profit relief organization, to bring flood relief and hurricane emergency kits to areas affected by the Category 4 storm.

“This is what radio does best: opening the hearts and wallets of listeners to help fellow Americans they will likely never meet,” Gallagher said. He spent a portion of his show broadcasting from a car dealership in Venice, Florida, which saw several automobiles damaged by falling trees, power lines, and debris.

A Tampa resident, Gallagher was forced to relocate his show to New York last week to remain on the air as Hurricane Ian barreled down on the Florida coast.
