As a voice talent, host and music publisher that spent years acquiring various artists music for distribution on his own world music label and others, Ron Knight was well prepared for the dawn of the satellite radio boom. His marketing and music experience make for a nice resume, but his voice as host of world music shows, national marketing campaigns, and now "Destination: The World" will ring familiar with many of the 8.5 million passengers exposed to each show.

Regarded as one of the first "pioneers" in broadcast history during the first advent of satellite radio broadcasting, Mr. Knight was the first in North America to program and host a commercially viable 24/7 format in traditional and contemporary World Music, heard as the channel "Horizons" on Sirius Radio.

As the on air host of Horizons, A&E, Inside Sirius and other talk formats, Ron led the way for many World Music artists to have their say and commentary in a most interesting talk and performance broadcast format. Aside from his World Music credentials, Ron has been heard as the national voice of the Travel Channel, in addition to Nickelodeon, ABC Wide World of Sports and other national broadcast brands.

With an educational and intrapersonal goal to help a domestic culture have their own experience with World culture and rhythm, Ron became trained as a Remo Certified Drum Circles Facilitator; so that groups, communities and corporate teams could experience team building and empowerment through their own interiorized sense of "global cultural rhythms" in discovery of their own musicology and communication skills.

As a musician, composer, band leader and educator, Mr. Knight has led the 12 piece horn band VMB, a showcase revue of 70's vintage horn based jazz, rock and soul, and boasts studies in music scoring and arrangement for motion picture and multimedia with the late Mr. Buddy Baker of Walt Disney Studios.
