In that time he has had thousands of guests in the hot seat, including President Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi, Steve Martin, Condoleezza Rice, Benjamin Netanyahu, John McCain, Eliot Spitzer, Joe Montana, Tony Bennett, Jimmy Carter, Willie Mays, Secretaries of State, CIA Directors and community leaders.
As a versatile talk host and author, Ronn covers everything from politics to pop culture, and his show has been called the "ultimate town hall meeting."

Ronn Owens is the best!

I've been listening to Ronn Owens for decades. Now I can listen to his show on podcasts ... wonderful, I never miss show now and can even listen to them again. Thanks KGO.

Much nice listening to the Ronn Owens Report where the whole show is condensed down to a single contiguous podcast. Agree or disagree, Ronn's opinion is always worth considering.

True Legend!

I've listened to Ronn Owens on KGO for a long time and really miss his talk show! His daily Ronn Owens Report is the next best thing to hearing him interact with callers and newsmakers. He makes me think and he makes me laugh! I always learn something when I listen to Ronn.
