REAL COUNTRY ON-AIR TALENT:
RON FOSTER Mornings
Ron began his radio career at country KTLW in his hometown of Texas City, Texas when he was 14. He’s been in radio ever since. From KTLW to KILE in Galveston, to country KIKK-FM in Houston where he co-hosted the morning show and acted as PD. From there it was morning drive at country KSCS-FM in Dallas/Ft. Worth and then onto ABC Radio Networks where he hosted an afternoon drive show heard around the world for over 23 years. “Radio is all I’ve ever wanted to do, even as a kid. It’s great to be back with Cumulus Media Networks and it’s even greater to be on Real Country because that’s just what it is – real Country. It’s the best Country music mix I’ve heard. Absolutely love the format, the people, and the music.” Ron is married to the love of his life, Ruthie, who is also a big Country music fan, especially Texas music from the likes of Jerry Jeff Walker, Johnny Bush, Willie Nelson, Ray Wylie Hubbard and more.
KRIS WILSON Middays
Kris is a 12-year veteran of Real Country. She has a bright and friendly style, which makes her a favorite of the midday crowd. As the Real Country Music Director, her knowledge of Country music comes in handy for her daily interactive request show and the Real Country weekend specials. Kris is happily married with two “furry children”, Karma and Nikki (meow). Kris is a big NASCAR fan (her favorite driver is Dale Earnhardt Jr.) and believes her love of music and people drew her to a Country radio career.
JIM CASEY Afternoons
Jim Casey is the afternoon host of Real Country. Jim admits that he decided on a career in radio when he was younger because it seemed like “a fun and easy job.” “A junior high school speech teacher told me that I had a good voice for radio,” he recalls. “I thought, ‘Well, that isn’t really working—I could do that!’” Although he’s entertaining on the air, Jim is serious when talking about his 20-year radio career. In addition to being part of Cumulus Media Networks’ Country air staff since the mid-80s; he programmed KKYX-AM in San Antonio, a station legendary for its signal that covers all of South Texas. More than 30 years later, Jim has changed his opinion about the difficulty of working in radio. “It sounds easy to be on the air,” Jim says. “But it’s a hard thing to learn to do.” Hard work doesn’t prevent Jim from having fun on the air. Listeners who tune into the program are likely to get lots of laughs, along with their Country music favorites.
JACY SHEPHERD Evenings
Jacy grew up in a military family with a dad in the Air Force. After living in Europe and the Northeastern US, her family settled in New Mexico where she went to high school and college and began her radio career, which led to on-air jobs in Dallas-Ft Worth. She loves wildlife and nature more than just about anything and you’ll generally find her outside. Jacy’s favorite memory is riding her barrel horse, Glitter, up in the Sandia Mountains near Albuquerque. Her German Shepherds are her pride and joy and she enjoys training them in various dog sports.
