Ron Boyd received his Bachelor of Science degree in communication from Western Michigan University in 1982. He is continuing his education towards a degree in meteorology. Ron is a member of the National Weather Association and the National Association of Black Journalists. As a NEWS 3 weathercaster, Ron has covered Michigan from one side to the other during his broadcast career. Traveling back and forth between Kalamazoo and Detroit has given him the opportunity to experience the metropolitan attractions of both cities as well as the cultural differences. For someone who describes himself as "easygoing and friendly," Ron feels broadcasting continues to be a great way to enjoy Michigan and the people who live here. Before joining the NEWS 3 staff Ron worked as a weathercaster at WJBK-TV in Detroit. He is a native of Detroit and has a strong attraction to the ever-changing weather in Michigan. Ron describes himself as "sometimes impatient" and that's an asset with Michigan weather because it changes so rapidly. Being part of the community is important to Ron. He is active in the Multiple Sclerosis Society and the United Negro College Fund. In his spare time Ron enjoys playing tennis, chess or basketball. He also enjoys reading and movies. When he can find time he will travel or devote time to sharpening his cooking skills. Ron lives with his family in the Kalamazoo area.
