Bio

I’m Ralphie Aversa — and I’m a storyteller with experience hosting, writing, producing and publishing content for local and national audiences on every platform.

I’m currently the East Coast Correspondent for DISH Studio on DISH. I cover red carpets and junkets, interviewing cast and creators from new and recurring series. My three favorite interviews in this capacity have been with Sarah Jessica Parker, Russell Crowe and Ben Stiller — Ben even brought along his daughter to the Showtime premiere of “Escape at Dannemora.”

In addition to that, I’m writing and editing for ABC Radio, freelance field producing, and hosting a weekend radio show on 97.5 WOKQ, a Townsquare Media radio station. I also created and host the “Pinstripe Lanes Podcast,” a seasonal podcast about the New York Yankees.

I spent over 11 years at Cumulus Media; more than 6 of those years were in New York, hosting weeknights on WPLJ-FM. I’ve interviewed every contemporary artist imaginable and covered The GRAMMYs, American Music Awards and Billboard Music Awards annually.

Speaking of the BBMAs, since 2014 I’ve served as the on-stage warm-up act for the award show. I work directly with the Executive Producers at Dick Clark Productions on how to excite and prompt the crowd during commercial breaks for the benefit of the broadcast.

I’ve also worked full-time at Dreams, a live TV startup here in New York, and at Yahoo News where I hosted “Trending Now.” I’ve appeared on HLN, WPIX-TV and Music Choice in various capacities.

I’m from Niagara Falls, New York and currently reside in Manhattan. I ran the New York City Marathon in 2017 and still clock about 20 miles a week. I’m passionate about telling great stories, in addition to the Yankees and my alma mater, Syracuse University.
