KSTV Semifinalist #12: “Radio” Ron Chilton

“Radio” Ron Chilton made quite the impression on the judges at the Louisville casting call when he predicted Enes Kanter would go before Brandon Knight. In the next stop in his quest to be Matt Jones’ running mate, he was asked to weigh in on the Calipari 500 win situation with Matt and Perrin Johnson. Give it a watch below.

    Matt,

    He’s really good. You should pick him. And stop the contest, because he probably doesn’t have a lot of time left. His analysis is solid, he’s funny (both intentionally and unintentionally), he’s knowledgeable, and he’s just senile enough that he’ll throw the occasional “Dizzy Gillispie” reference out, which is unintentionally funny. Seriously though, you should pick him. He’s the best.

    It will be a crying shame if “Radio” Ron does not win this. Out of all the people he has made me laugh the most, and kept my attention throughout the whole thing. He was even able to get you on the football side of the issue Matt. Something will be very fishy if Radio Ron does not win this. Radio Ron= GOLD!

    Well,I was impressed untill he started talking about Bill Curry coming in and saying give me 4 years to get my players and in the 4th year they went 9-3 and 5th year they went 10-1. Of couse he was talking about the Fran Curci years but he said it was Bill Curry. Lord knows Curry never got a smell of success.

    Best so far, hire him Matt before you hire some blonde bimbo who doesn’t know what there talking about! This guy is good and knows his stuff!!!!!

    If he doesn’t win, he should be a regular contributor.

    #9: there aren’t any blondes even in this competition….and by the looks of your post, you might be the bimbo. Please learn the difference between ‘there’ and ‘they’re’…..

    I’ve listened to all the casting calls, and this guy is the best. He’s fun to watch, and brings the energy and enthusiasm to make UK fans positive about their team. A perfect match with Matt Jones who also “gets it”. A SUPERB addition to KSTV.

    Hiring Radio Ron is the only chance KSTV has of getting any regular viewers. He’s both knowledgeable and entertaining, which makes up for the general lack of those characteristics from everyone else on staff.

    Fun to listen to, even when he’s wrong on facts… like #8 said, Bill Curry never won 10 games in one season. He would have needed three.

    At 2:57 Matt has a pick the nose moment… he pauses, considers the camera, then decides to do the nose swipe hoping for enough penetration on the finger drive by for relief without being obvious.

    Hey Matt… it was obvious! lol

    Radio Ron is by far the most insightful, intelligable and entertaining co- host you have had audition. There were a couple of minor slips ups but he was on point with all his responses and had a unique take on UK sports. He is, without question, the winner of this competition and will provide KSTV with a great presence alongside Matt. Thanks

    This guy.

    Radio Ron’s got my vote. Knowledgeable, funny, and intelligent. I can see him going toe to toe with Matt.

    simply gangster, hands down the best

    Matt if not, he may steal Larry Glover’s job before you do.

    Without question, the best so far!

    He has a great persona with his talk. He needs a hair stylist, (lose the comb over). Ron was nervous. He misspoke himself at the 5:24 mark with mentioning pitno as the UK coach next year. That blind date comment was outa nowhere. Love to listen to him in the future. Don’t think he will be nervous when he has settled in.

    He was certainly polished and good, but he did mis-speak several times-enough for it to be a concern. I think that might kill it for him in the end.

    Radio Ron is KSR. Go with the Roy Orbison glasses.

    This guy ain’t pretty, but he is the best that has been on there. Would be a great teacher for matt and perrin.

    What the heck are “hate-hers?” He adds H’s everywhere they’re not supposed to be. That aside, he’s still the best I’ve seen in this competition.



  34. Jeri Irwin
    9:44 am July 9, 2011 Permalink

    He is by far the best! He has my vote. Very entertaining, confident, and knowledgeable.



  35. Brucebigblue

    Definitely the one

    radio ron is where it’s at… and it’s not even close.

    Radio Ron should be the winner with his style, voice, andknowledge,and experience.

    He could be working for anyone. Grab him before he gets picked up by someone else.

    2:41 pm July 9, 2011 Permalink

    Yeah, this guy is a winner. I’d be more inclined to watch with his personality on the staff. Like your stuff Matt but Radio Ron throws in a bit of what is missing on the show. He would have my vote of the ones I’ve seen so far.



  43. edlover
    3:50 pm July 9, 2011 Permalink

    He is a riot! This guy knows his stuff, transcends generations of fans, and is hilarious. By far the best
