Don Geronimo got his first job at WRWC in Rockton, Illinois at the age of 14, in radio. Shot from the General Manager for breaking the "beautiful music" format to perform with some Top-40 music, it wasn�t the first time a structure broke. Or got fired. As his career accelerated but developing never stopped.
From the age of 16 Don was about and out the air in the significant industry of Pittsburgh, at Fun Lovin� 13Q. At seventeen, he was working in Nyc, performing the nightshift at 99X. And then he got fired. Again. And started the climb all the way back-up the radio hierarchy.
From 1977-1979 Don worked in Providence, RI, Indianapolis, and Detroit. In 1979 he was hired at WPGC in online talk radio streaming , DC. From there it had been to KIIS- FM in La and then WLS in Chicago. After moving to WBBM-FM in Chicago for mornings, he transferred yet again, back to Washington DC in 1985.
The move to WAVA combined with start of Don�s son Bart in �85 meant no further moving for some time. Don was transferred to days and joined with Mike O�Meara to the WAVA Morning Zoo thru 1991 after performing the afternoon move on WAVA. At that point, the now rebranded "Don & Mike Show" moved to WJFK and back to days in DC. The D&M show ran for over 20 years, and atone point was syndicated to over 50 stations. Don retired from that present in 2008, time for radio this year at KHTK in Sacramento. He kept there of 36 months, till he was shot. All over again!
That generated the inception of the DonGeronimoPodcast.com! Several examples of Don�s atmosphere work about the M & D show and solo can be found at Airchexx.com.
