Ron Snyder is ecstatic to return Pennsylvania after growing up watching Steelers and Pirates games at his grandma's house. He wishes Madonia Snyder was still alive to watch. Ron thanks his dad for handing him a baseball glove and letting him miss the school bus to watch extra highlights on SportsCenter and his mom for always being encouraging. His first broadcasting job was doing morning announcements at Nordonia High School.

Ron graduated from Syracuse University and majored in broadcast journalism and marketing. At Syracuse, he was a part of CitrusTV, the nation’s oldest and largest student-run television station. After graduating, he worked for two years in Abilene, TX and covered Abilene High School’s football state championship. From there, Ron covered college and professional sports all over the country from LSU, the Louisiana Ragin' Cajuns, Grambling, Florida State, the Buffalo Sabres, the Buffalo Bills, the New Orleans Pelicans, and New Orleans Saints.

Ron is proud to serve Northeast and Central Pennsylvania raising awareness for loneliness and suicide prevention with his "Everybody Knows Ron" shirts. "Show Some Love" when you see him in the streets and take an "Everybody Knows Ron" picture. 4th Quarters and 9th innings are thrilling but it is even more rewarding to make the world smaller and better one person and picture at a time. Everybody needs a friend.
