Ron Della Chiesa
Ron's love affair with radio began as a kid listening to the Lone Ranger, Jack Benny, Fred Allen, and other legends from Radio’s Golden Age. After graduating from The Boston University School of Communications he landed his first radio gig at WBOS as the host of a variety of ethnic shows including The Irish Hour, Music of the Near East, The Italian Melody Hour, and The Boston Greek Hour. In the early 60’s he was the program director of WBCN (Boston Concert Network), at that time an all-classical music station. In 1968 the station changed to an All Rock format. He had been working part-time at WGBH in both radio and TV and was asked to join the station full time later that year.
A member of the Massachusetts Broadcasters Hall of Fame, Ron Della Chiesa is the voice of WCRB's Boston Symphony Orchestra broadcasts.
