Ron Hanson - Since 2017
Digital Marketing Specialist
Ron grew up in Northern Iowa and attendant college in Austin where he obtained his Radio/Television Broadcasting degree. His career spans 35 years in media and marketing. You could say he has done it all, when it comes to media. Ron helped start a radio station in Osage, IA before working 11 years in radio in Rochester as on-air, promotions, and sales. Ron then spent 10 years at a marketing agency working with video and digital. He states he was “digital cool” before digital was cool. More recently Ron worked many years in local print media as their digital marketing lead.
Empty nesters now, Ron makes his home in Rochester with his wife Jody, a Heart Lung Transplant Coordinator and their 150 lb. Newfoundland. They are the proud parents of two beautiful daughters.
In his spare time Ron is active in his church as well as many community organizations; loves music, wine, sunshine and helping others. He is honored to be part of a trusted brand with such great people here at ABC 6 News!
I love helping my customers in every way possible to ensure that their marketing efforts are the best they can be. Help them to do something they were unable to do before. Develop a marketing strategy that forms a solid foundation, listen, listen and listen again to help identify needs and build a long lasting-trustworthy relationship that forms a solid foundation… all while keeping up with the latest ideas and changes affecting how we do business.
Keeping those goals in mind I will end with one of my favorite quotes by best-selling author Seth Godin, “Our job is to connect to people, to interact with them in a way that leaves them better than we found them; more able to get where they’d like to go”.
Ron has been known to adorn an Elvis jumpsuit, has emceed/auctioneered many local charity events and has a very famous friend in the music business. He once overheard, “If you’re a good marketing person, you have to be a little crazy”.
