DJ OF THE WEEK: Ron Foster of WZZK Radio Gospel Jubilee!
Born and raised in Shelby County, Alabama, growing up Ron Foster was your typical boy from the south. He loved God and college football. But possibly not so typical was his love for Southern Gospel music. While his friends were listening to other genres of music, Ron had his radio tuned to whatever station was playing The Chuckwagon Gang, or The Cathedrals. And his passion for the music is still very much alive.

Ron’s first job in radio was at WGTT, a small dep owned independently station in Alabaster, Alabama and for the past 15 years, Ron’s home has been at WZZK hosting The Sunday Morning Gospel Jubilee.

Some of the honors Ron has received throughout the years include being twice nominated as one of the Top 5 DJ’s in America, as well as being a nominee for six consecutive years as one of the Top 10 DJ’s in America (large market). He was also the recipient of The Singing News’ Golden Mic Award in 2011.
Ron has been married to his sweetheart, Kim, for 30 years. They have one son, Austin, who you can hear co-host alongside of Ron.

STATION OF THE WEEK: WZZK 104.7 Birmingham, AL
WZZK, Central Alabama’s heritage country radio station, is Alabama’s home to the best country music. Combining Alabama’s most popular morning show, The Rick and Bubba Show, with the most popular country hits, WZZK provides something for everyone.
