Ron Seggi (BA degree in Business Administration, with a major in Marketing), acquired his first Disc Jockey job at a commercial radio station. The following year, he was named the Music Director, in addition to his on-air responsibilities.
During college, Ron worked full-time as an announcer for both radio and television (in his hometown of Erie, Pennsylvania). In addition, he made numerous personal appearances at record hops and emceed beauty pageants, rock concerts and variety shows.
Throughout his career, Ron has donated literally thousands of hours of public service time to such causes as the American Heart Association, the American Cancer Society, St. Judes’ Children’s Hospital, the United Way, the March of Dimes and the Kiwanis and Rotary Clubs.
Ron embarked on a singing career, putting together a successful nightclub act. It was during this time that he recorded twelve records, five of which were released nationally and two were nominated for Grammy Awards. He has also performed as a warm-up act for several internationally known performers.
Ron opened his own full service advertising agency, which he operated for two years, until he purchased his first radio station. At age twenty-nine, Ron became the owner of WSEG-FM. Over the six years that he owned the station, he hired several of the announcers that he used to admire as a child.
It was always his goal to do a show on a national level and that opportunity afforded itself, when on December 31, 1990, THE RON SEGGI SHOW-live, debuted nationwide, via satellite.
Since the shows inception, Ron has interviewed over 15,000 guests and has broadcast his show from all over the country.
His production company, has been active in many radio and television productions.
His latest venture includes a National Television Show that he will produce and host, titled “Ron Seggi’s Rock N’ Roll Legends”, which is set in a Tonight Show setting, featuring Rock Legends from the past forty years.
“The supreme compliment is when the ultimate announcer asks you to be his announcer.”
He has won several awards for his business and public service involvement.
January 8, 2001 Ron was bestowed a unique honor. The flag of the United States of America, flew on the Nations’ Capital in Washington, D.C., to commemorate forty years of service in the radio and television industry. After the flag was taken down, it was given to Ron, as a tribute to this monumental occasion.
