The stories here are all about a guy who was loved by so many because he lived the Golden Rule of life and business, and we in radio were the lucky beneficiaries of his charm, wit, intelligence and passion for our livelihood. My hope is that those who weren't fortunate enough to know Ron will take the time to ask someone who did why he was so special. Then they'll know why his memory will motivate others to aspire to the level of admiration and compassion he so naturally achieved.

Ron was an incredible inspiration to all those that he touched. He left his handshake, his smile and his footprint everywhere he went. To those that he hired he inspired. And to those that he called on he remained top of mind. Ron was truly a "coast-to-coast" broadcaster who just made things work for all. Ron gets his own "Hall of Fame" for all he did for Radio and for us all who knew him. Blessings and safe passage Ron.

Ron Ruth was a great friend and supporter of my work. He taught me a great deal about the radio industry. I shall miss him but I am so thankful that I knew him.

Ron Ruth was a radio treasure.Blessed with Street Smarts and impish sense of humor. Ron was GM of our Eastman-owned KAFY- Bakersfield.before he went to WTMI --Classical music in Miami. I recommended Ron for WQAM to Bud Armstrong at Storz. We repped Bud in St Louis. Told Ron to get the job he'd have get a short haircut--wear a suit--white shirt and tie vs his Hippie long hair and Beatnik blue jeans. He argued like crazy but did and got the job. Ron was a clasy guy when Radio was lots of fun. We'll miss Ron.

I met and began my friendship with Ron in 1972 when I tried to lure him to KHJ...he went to Europe instead. Since then I have worked with him...for him...around him...and because of him. Ron is the guy that was the very soul of the small business attitude of radio in the 60's, 70's and 80's. He knew us ALL and cared for us ALL in the times when Radio was MAGIC and built on personal contacts and a belief that RADIO WORKS...Ron promised us that it would... it did.
Bless you my friend
