Ronn Owens has had the top-rated program with KGO 810 for over 35 years. 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." Similar to KGO's listenership, Ronn is unpredictable and has long been the voice of reason in the Bay Area, balancing issues so that listeners can make up their own minds.
As Ronn says, "I'm just like everybody else - I look at the world around me and comment on it."
Over the years, Ronn has won numerous awards and was inducted into the Bay Area Radio Hall of Fame in December 2007 and Chicago's National Radio Hall of Fame in 2015. The National Association of Broadcasters presented him with the prestigious Marconi Award for Major Market Personality of the Year Award in 2003 and again in 2010. Talkers Magazine named Ronn one of the Top 25 Greatest Radio Talk Show Hosts of All Time, ranking him 13th and the top local personality in the country.
His first book, Voice of Reason: Why the Left and Right are Wrong, was published in 2004. Ronn is married to former KCBS anchor Jan Black. They have two daughters, Sarah and Laura, and live in San Francisco.

Bruks ,

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.
