Ron started at WFLZ in Tampa as an intern in 1988 and, two years later, began hosting a 9 p.m. to 2 a.m. show featuring R&B and soul music. He also worked in promotions and as assistant program director.
After thirteen years, he felt it was time to move on, so he took a PD’s gig with WENN in Birmingham, which turned out to be a short one, especially when compared to the number of years spent at the Tampa station. In 2003, he returned to Florida as PD and afternoon drive host for 105.5 WBTT in Ft. Myers. Later that same year, he moved to 95.7 WBTP in Clearwater as PD and midday (and later afternoon) air personality JoMama Johnson.
Shepard resigned his position with WBTP in late 2011, ending a 23-year association with Clear Channel, and announced that his last day would be Dec. 20th.
