We knew the Sirius XM purge was coming. But we never expected Ron Ross to be laid off from The Pulse radio station — leading to the disappearance of Ron Ross Morning Show.
Keep reading this Ron Ross Bio to learn more.
What Happened To Ron Ross?
Ron Ross was fired from Sirius XM in March 2023 after 16 years with the company.
Disheartened, the radio host took to his Twitter on March 7 to write, “Welp, I survived a merger, a heart attack, and a global pandemic, but after nearly 16 years, it’s over. I was laid off from @SiriusXM yesterday in their purge. No more #RonRossMorningShow. Thank you, thank you, thank you for welcoming me into your mornings. We had some fun didn’t we?”
Obviously, this upset many regulars.
“@SIRIUSXM I’m so sad that you canceled Ron Ross on the Pulse. He was such a great DJ & a joy to listen to during my morning commutes. My motivation to continue my SiriusXM subscription just went to 0. Sadly, greed is killing this company and I don’t want to be a part of it,” a fan wrote.
While another added, “So sad to see this! My morning commute hasn’t been the same. Best of luck to you.”
But in Sirius XM’s defense, they did announce that they would be laying off about 475 people, or roughly 8% of its total workforce. The layoffs came after advertising cash began to dry up in response to economic uncertainty.
