The longest-running morning show in South Florida radio history, the regionally-syndicated “Paul & Young Ron Show,” will continue on for at least four more years–the length of the new contract just signed by co-hosts Paul Castronovo and “Young” Ron Brewer with Clear Channel South Florida.
They’re heard 6:00-10:00 on BIG 105.9 FM (WBGG-FM Miami/Fort Lauderdale), Real Radio 94.3 and 101.7 FM (West Palm Beach and the Treasure Coast), Sun 103.1 (Key Largo) and 99.5 FM (Key West). It will have been on for 26 years by the end of this deal.
“It looks like they will have to put up with us for another four years, God help them,” said Castronovo. “I hope Ron’s liver holds out.”
“Four years is a long time, Paul’s weight could come back two or three times during that time,” added Brewer.
The two first teamed up in 1990, debuting on WSHE-FM before switching to Clear Channel and WZTA-FM five years later. Since 2004, its flagship station has been WBGG. The show (www.paulandyoungron.com) is known for its A-list celebrity guests, funny bits and stories and a collection of regulars that include ESPN sportscaster Dave LaMont, local news anchor Kelly Craig, Zoo Miami’s Ron Magill, filmmaker Billy Corben, Chef Ralph Pagano, and executive producer Steve Harmon.
