Rise and Shine with Rona

Meet Rona.  Every weekday morning Rise & Shine with her as she brings her own brand of morning fun and frivolity from 5:30am-10:00am.

Rona’s been entertaining radio audiences for over 20 years after stumbling into the business. Three time’s she’s been awarded the Excellence in Broadcasting Award by the West Virginia Broadcasters Association for Morning Show of the Year in 2017, 2018 (as part of Marco Nation), and in 2020.  Over the years,  Rona has filled many roles on and off the air,  including Traffic Anchor, Public Service Liason, and Promotions Director.

In her spare time, she can be found performing onstage in regional theater productions with Maryland Ensemble Theatre. Rona loves live and local music and enjoys discovering new artists whenever she can. In fact, she was such a fan of several local artists that she turned her passion into a local music show “Rona’s Local Music Lounge”. She also enjoys volunteering and has a difficult time saying “no” when asked to give her time to organizations near and dear to her heart, especially when it involves the arts. Get your morning started with a genuine smile with Rona on Today’s 97.5!
