Ron Zappolo is the definition of a Denver Legend. To anyone who’s lived in The Rocky Mountain Region and watched Television News, they watched Ron Zappolo.

There’s an old saying it’s better to be lucky, than good, but Ron, who’s certainly good, admits there was some dumb luck involved in his career.
Also, most folks in Denver may not know how Ron found his way to the Mile High City, and what person was most instrumental in his success, maybe not just here, but in the business as a whole.
We always end the media podcast with “advice” for folks in the business, and Ron offers some phenomenal advice, so, I urge you to listen to the entire conversation, because there really is only one Ron Zappolo!
