'Young' Ron Brewer steps down from popular South Florida radio show

Final 'Paul & Young Ron Show' airs live Friday morning at Seminole Hard Rock

HOLLYWOOD, Fla. – "Young" Ron Brewer said goodbye to his colleagues and fans Friday as he stepped down from his popular South Florida radio show.

"What's next?" Local 10 News reporter Ben Kennedy asked the host of "The Paul & Young Ron Show."

"Whatever I want to do. To tell you the truth, I don't know," Brewer said. "I have a great opportunity and I'm going to enjoy myself for a while. I've been doing this for more than 40 years."

Brewer and Paul Castronovo have been on air together for 26 years, hosting "The Paul & Young Ron Show."

Castronovo told Kennedy that he's definitely going to miss his co-host.

"There was one constant in doing morning radio, and that's waking up with this grumpy son of a gun," Castronovo said.

The final broadcast Friday morning was live from the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, where fans got in line to see Brewer and tell him how much he will be missed.

"It's overwhelming," Brewer said. "We had 200 (people) outside."

Castronovo will be airing solo beginning Jan. 2 on "The Paul Castronovo Show" on Big 105.9.
