Ron and Karen

Start your day with Ron Olson and Karen Perrin on The River.  This dream team is back together again on The River Monday through Friday 6am to 10am.  Listen! 

Ron Olson, a 25 year veteran of morning radio and Memphis Native.  Ron graduated from Oakhaven High School, and Memphis State University.  Ron has earned a reputation as a prankster with stunts like the “Great Pumpkin Drop”, “Motley Crue Reading Room”  and “One Day Legalized Gambling in Memphis”.  Ron Olson and Karen Perrin were morning hosts at sister station FM 100 for over 12 years together. Ron joined 104.5 The River in January 2018 and creates art on the side @ronolsondj.  

Karen Perrin is excited to finally be on air at 104.5 The River! Karen is a Memphis girl, University of Alabama grad and mom to two pretty great boys. She has been waking up Mid-Southerners on morning radio for years and is ready to be paired once again with Ron Olson. While much of her free time is spent on family, work and social media, she is an avid fan of Alabama football #RollTide, University of Memphis sports #GoTigersGo and the Memphis Grizzlies #GrizzNation!
