Before landing at Louisville Public Media and Do502, Ron Fisher spent most of his adult life in radio (if you can call that “adulting”) handling promotions and events for several Louisville-area radio stations, in addition to providing website and social media updates for them and hosting various programs on-air. Ron can currently be heard filling in on our own 89.3 WFPL and 91.9 WFPK.
Besides his broadcasting experience, Ron also ran his own event management company and has contracted events for several local organizations. He also provides web and social media services for various local businesses.
On a personal note, Ron is married to WFPK midday host, Mel Fisher, They got to know each other, of course, after working together at several Louisville radio stations. They live in Crestwood, KY with two Bichons named Dolly and Emmylou, who sometimes let Ron and Mel share the house with them. They actively support the Kentucky Humane Society, several cancer awareness organizations and Louisville Public Media (and NPR), of course.
