Real Country

Ron Foster

Ron began his radio career at country KTLW in his hometown of Texas City, Texas when he was 14.

He's been in radio ever since. From KTLW to KILE in Galveston, to country KIKK-FM in,

Houston where he co-hosted the morning show and acted as PD

- from there it was morning drive at country KSCS-FM in Dallas/Ft.Worth and then onto ABC Radio networks where he hosted

the afternoon drive show heard around the world for over 23 years.

"Radio is all I've ever wanted to do, even as a kid."

"It's great to be back with Cumulus Media - and it's even greater to be on Real Country because that's just what it is

- real country.

It's the best country music mix I've heard. Absolutely love the format, the people, and the music."

Ron has been married to the love of his life for the past 4 years - Ruthie who is also a big country music fan, especially,

Texas music from the likes of Jerry Jeff Walker,

Johnny Bush, Willie Nelson, Ray Wylie Hubbard, and more. "She's still trying to teach me to dance but I can't get over the 'two left feet' thing.

" He has two grown kids, Shawna and Chance. Shawna is a teacher and Chance manages a gun shop. And of course, his granddaughter ,

Emerson owns a big chunk of his heart.

"I've taken a lot more out of radio than radio has taken out of me." I don't ever plan on retiring. This is just too much fun!

Jim Casey

Jim Casey is the afternoon host of Cumulus Media Networks' Real Country.

Jim admits that he decided on a career in radio when he was younger because it seemed like "a fun and easy job.

" "A junior high school speech teacher told me that I had a good voice for radio," he recalls. "I thought, ,

'Well, that isn't really working - I could do that!'"

Although he's entertaining on the air, Jim is serious when talking about his 20-year radio career.

In addition to being part of the Cumulus Media Networks' Country air staff since the mid '80s, he programmed KKYX-AM in San Antonio.

This station is legendary for its signal that covered all of South Texas. More than 30 years later, Jim has changed his opinion about the ,

difficulty of working in radio."It sounds easy to be on the air," Jim says. "But it's a hard thing to learn to do."

Hard work doesn't prevent Jim from having fun on the air. Listeners who tune into the program are likely to get lots of laughs,

along with their country music favorites.
