This is the second go around for Ronnie Duncan at WOIO and WUAB.

Ronnie’s broadcast career began in 1978 in radio in his native city, Baltimore, Maryland.

While also volunteering as a broadcaster at the Baltimore Veterans Hospital Ronnie developed his on-air skills with more than 30,000 volunteer hours.

He got his television break at WJZ-TV in Baltimore where he would become a Sports Reporter and Weekend Sports Anchor.

Many of Ronnie’s early rehearsals for his big television debut were done with Oprah Winfrey.

Ronnie’s sportscasting journey has taken him throughout the United States with stops in Durham, North Carolina, New Haven, Connecticut, Phoenix, Arizona, Indianapolis, Indiana, Columbus, and Cleveland, Ohio.

In late December of 1994 Ronnie joined WOIO/WUAB.

Mr. Duncan would later become WOIO’s Sports Director and was honored with 3 Emmy nominations while also hosting a morning talk show at WKNR.

He left WOIO/WUAB in November of 2001 to pursue other media interests by developing his own production company Slam Dunc Productions.

Under the banner of Village Television and Slam Dunc Productions, Ronnie wrote and produced various documentaries, including the award winning “The Other Color of Winning.”

This was a documentary about the Cleveland Browns historic 1964 Championship team.

In 2005 expanding his radio broadcasting resume, he hosted the Ronnie Duncan Morning Show on WERE AM in Cleveland at Radio One.

He found himself at WAAY in Huntsville, Alabama in 2012, where he won the Broadcasters Association’s Best Sports Anchor and the Associated Press “Best Sports Coverage” award.

Ronnie-Slam-Duncan has consistently throughout his career sought after opportunities to showcase his versatility. So, in 2014 he leaped from Sports to News and secured a position at WNEM in Flint and Saginaw Michigan.

While leading WNEM’s coverage of the infamous Flint Water Crisis, he was granted an exclusive one on one interview with Governor Rick Snyder from his apartment.

That along with other breaking news stories lead to WNEM receiving the Associated Press award for Outstanding Coverage of the crisis.

His next ventures in 2016 would be producing and later management for (VOA) Voice of America in Washington, D.C. VOA expanded Ronnie’s horizons to work in both Bangladesh and Urdu divisions as a Producer.

The multi-talented Duncan later joined the management team at Star Hawk Solutions, a broadcasting staffing agency that employed more than 400 international government contracted broadcasters from the South and Central Asia.

Throughout his career Ronnie has maintained his desire to give back to the community he has served and will continue serving wherever he goes.

He volunteers and does charitable works with The Muscular Dystrophy Association, Veterans Administration, and the NAACP.

Ronnie is back in Northeast Ohio and for him it’s been a dream come true.

“This will be the final chapter of my television career “Duncan said.

“I am Back, I am Home, and I am Happy!”
