It appears the Ron and Fez show on SiriusXM’s Raw Dog Comedy Hits is coming to a close. Ron Bennington opened the show on April 1 with the shocking announcement. “The Ron and Fez Show is coming to an end. Friday will be our last show. It’s something that Fez and I have been talking about for awhile, and it’s been a long long run for us.” The Interrobang reports Fez Whatley then made the announcement that he is retiring from radio, and that Friday April 3rd would not only be his last day on the air, but would also be the last day of the Ron and Fez Show. April Fool’s day is quite the day to make an announcement like this, especially in entertainment. Is this real? A evidently sad Fez told the audience, “I am retiring from radio. Not just radio, but the most important thing ever in my life, the Ron and Fez Show.” Fez has been one half of the Ron and Fez show for the past 17 years and goes back as far as the Ron and Ron show in Tampa, Florida as a producer. It’s been reported that Fez has been suffering for the past ten years from a number of health problems, both physical and emotional, including multiple heart attacks, stents, anxiety and depression, which have made doing his job a daily struggle for him, prompting the decision to step down. More details to come as the story develops.
