MIRAMAR, Fla. – It'll be the end of an era in the South Florida radio business as Ron Brewer announced this morning that he is retiring from the popular "Paul & Young Ron Show."

Brewer made the announcement this morning that he is stepping away from the radio show that he has co-hosted with Paul Castronovo since 1990.

Brewer says his last day on the show will be December 16.

“I’ll miss radio, but I’m looking forward to not being on a schedule after getting up at 3:30 a.m. all these years," Brewer said. "I don’t have any specific plans, maybe I’ll buy an RV, but I’m going to enjoy life and fulfill some bucket list items."

The "Paul & Young Ron Show" first debuted on WSHE back in 1990, moving around the dial until ending up at BIG 105.9 where it's been since 2004.

“It's certainly the end of an era; an unprecedented 26-year run for Young Ron and myself. We sure have had a lot of laughs over the years, and that's what its always been about." said about the retirement of his long-time partner.
