WCBS-FM Evening DJ Ron Parker a Good Fit for Station, Listeners

Joining some big names in New York radio, WCBS-FM evening DJ Ron Parker has found his own niche with audiences.

Parker has been with CBS-FM since shortly after the station went back to Classic Hits from the jockless “Jack” format in 2007.

At the time, Parker wasn’t too familiar with listeners. But he wasn’t a complete novice either. He did some fill-in work at Z100 in 1991.

Parker, a Bronx native who also lived in New Jersey growing up, got a radio greats crash course every day.

“In those fine formidable teen years, I got a really good dose of 1010 WINS, WABC, WMCA,” Parker remembers. “Like any young kid who wanted to get in radio… [I] just listened and taped the guys.”

Parker reminisces about meeting Dan Ingram and “Cousin” Brucie after the jump.
