Entertainment reporter and syndicated radio host Ralphie Aversa is a quadruple threat. His platforms in television, radio, print, and the Internet allow him to tell compelling stories in a compelling fashion to a vast audience.
His forte is interviews – from topic experts to national newsmakers. Ralphie has spoken with everyone from Lady GaGa to Matt Damon. He’s covered a wide variety of events on location, from the 2008 Presidential Election to the MTV Video Music Awards.
“The Ralphie Show” currently airs on Cumulus Media’s 95.5 PLJ in New York, 92 PRO-FM in Providence, RI, Q105 in New London, CT, and 97 BHT in Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, PA. Aversa offers exclusive interviews, hit music, soon-to-be hit music, and candid commentary on the stories of the day. His total cume between the four stations is over 3.8 million people.
“The Ralphie Report” lives in both print and TV forms. The former began running in Northeastern Pennsylvania’s The Weekender (Circulation: 170,000) back in 2008. The column is a weekly, print version of “The Ralphie Show’s” best content.
The TV version airs every Thursday at 4 pm on WBRE-TV’s “PA Live!” Aversa runs down three of the biggest stories from the week with his exclusive take on each for the NBC affiliate.
Each radio station’s website and ralphieaversa.com house the web component – which is an exact mirror of the weeknight show: including new music, exclusive high definition video, and podcasts of segments. Ralphie is also very active on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram – managing his own accounts and commonly interacting with listeners.
In addition to his own platforms, Aversa has contributed on a national level to FOX, CNN, HLN, MSNBC, TMZ, Life & Style Weekly, and MTV News.
Aversa attended Syracuse University, dual-majoring in broadcast journalism and marketing. He hails from Niagara Falls, NY and currently resides in Manhattan.
