Over the last ten years, Ray has welcomed in the new morning on News/Talk WLOB radio, first co-hosting the Ray & Ted show for seven years and then hosting The Ray Richardson Show for the last three years.
News/Talk WLOB has always been the flagship station. In 2013, the LOB Lobster Radio Network was created, adding morning partners such as 1450AM, 780AM, 1160AM and 1430AM.
Additionally, after offering audio streaming for the last five years, 2013 also saw the inclusion of a separate video stream. This has given The Ray Richardson Show not only audio streaming throughout all fifty states, but also a video stream in all fifty states. The Ray Richardson Show saw its national streaming audience grow 22% in 2013.
For over a decade, Ray also authored a weekly newspaper column for several weekly newspapers and a daily, the Portland Daily Sun.
Ray’s first book, “It Might Just Be Me, But I Don’t Think So!” sold out both the first and second editions.
Ray is a former Chamber of Commerce President, former Chairman of the Westbrook Republican Party and helped establish the Mission Possible Teen Center (now My Place Teen Center) which serves the needs of at-risk youth. Ray also produces several music festivals, created the annual Maine Barbecue Showdown with the Battle of the Bands, one of Maine’s most popular barbecue and music events, as well as the annual Portland Lobster Festival.
Ray lives in Westbrook with his wife of 28 years, Dee Dee Grizzard Richardson. They have four children and a little dog who believes he is their fifth child.
