Radio Legend Ron Smith Loses Battle With Cancer


Baltimore lost a great man today. Long time radio host of “The Ron Smith” has finally succumbed to pancreatic cancer that he was diagnosed with in October. Smith passed away around 11:00 PM EST on December 19th in his home surrounded by family.

Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh gave the Cleveland Browns game ball to Ron Smith and dedicated the game to him. John Harbaugh called Smith on his birthday and they had a 30 minute conversation that Ron called “one of the most encouraging and motivational conversations I’ve ever had with anyone in my life.”

I’ll miss Ron Smith’s soothing voice reverberating in the car during the afternoon. The man known as “The Voice of Reason” always made sense of the area’s current hot topics. Thank you to Ron Smith for a decade full of great memories that will last for the rest of my life.
