2016 Legacy Inductee
1942 - 2015
Ron Arnold has called Dalton home for almost half a century. The Shelbyville, TN native first made an impression on North GA radio listeners with his on air work as disc-jockey Ron Dailey on the legendary WFLI in nearby Chattanooga in the early 1960’s. He served in the Marines in Okinawa with The Armed Forces Radio and Television Network. After his discharge in 1968, Ron came to Dalton and was hired in a sales and marketing position at WTTI. Ron quickly was promoted to Station Manager of the radio station and the co-owned upstart cable company. He had a radio studio constructed at the cable TV office for the DJ’s to do a night time “radio show” after the WTTI sign-off for the cable TV viewers. Ron was active in the community and served on various boards during his nearly 20 years at the helm of WTTI. Arnold died December 24, 2015.
