Ron Roberts Exits As WSTR Atlanta Program Director
After just ten months in Atlanta, Ron Roberts has departed the Program Director position at Entercom Hot AC “Star 94.1” WSTR.
Roberts joined WSTR in August 2018 after previously serving as VP/Programming for iHeartMedia Myrtle Beach SC where he programmed CHR “Mix 97.7” WWXM from 2007-2018. Last month Roberts oversaw a revamp of the WSTR on-air lineup following the exits of morning co-host Jeff Dauler, MD/midday host Heather Branch and APD/afternoon host Mike Marino and additions of new APD/MD/afternoon host Mike Kannon and multiple members of the morning show.
Roberts confirmed his exit in an Instagram post from a dinner with his husband Ethan, Kannon, and new morning co-host Curtis Slade celebrating his exit and Ethan’s new job at the Atlanta based Weather Channel.

Celebrating the end of an emotional day with some of my favorite people ever. They say work isn’t work when you work with good people. Okay, well I had to do a lot of work and under some duress but these two were effortless to work alongside. They’re stars … and they’ll lead a station’s resurrection. I’m already proud knowing they’re not only capable but destined to do it. #noregrets. Oh also my handsome husband got a job at the Weather Channel today! Should be the lead story damn it! #proudhusband
