I’ve had the idea floating around my mind for some time, if not years, about having a section here on PSR devoted to mugs shots of on air radio personalities/presenters, hanging around their designated microphones…
As a long time radio guy, I’ve always been partial to ‘Mic Shots’
When I came across this one of Jon Ramer, I thought, lets get this thing rolling, meaning, Jon is the first Puget Sound Radio ‘Mic Shot’ to be presented.
My comments on Jon’s facebook page was, this is GREAT! so you Radio Presenters out there, Please, start clicking, and sending me your best mug, I mean, ‘Mic Shot’ to: [email protected] I look forward to posting your contribution to this new PSR Presentation.
Jon lists himself on his facebook page, as a Child of God, husband, son, dad, brother, program director, Radio host, VO artist, foot model.
Now, what about Jon, whose been in the industry for over twenty years…
Jon currently holds down the PD and MD position at Shine Red Deer.

This is great, Michael! Haven’t heard Jon ssince The Bridge days. He held down the morning show for a time, occasionally co-hosted with Christian musician, Connie Scott. Jon’s got a great voice!
Thanks Donovan. That’s very kind. Those were good times for sure. Connie
Was the best part of the show!
