“The Ralphie Radio Show” currently airs on Cumulus Media’s 95.5 WPLJ in New York City (the show's flagship station), 92 PRO-FM in Providence, RI,[5]Q105 in Groton, CT[6] and 97 BHT in Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, PA[7]Aversa offers exclusive interviews, hit music, soon-to-be hit music, and candid commentary on the stories of the day. His total cume between the four stations is over 700,000 people.[8]

“The Ralphie Report” lives in both print and TV forms. The former began running in Northeastern Pennsylvania’s The Weekender (Circulation: 170,000) back in 2008. The column is a weekly, print version of “The Ralphie Radio Show’s” best content.[9]

The TV version airs every Thursday at 4 pm on WBRE-TV’s “PA Live!”[10] Aversa runs down three of the biggest stories from the week with his exclusive take on each for the NBC affiliate.

Each radio station’s website and ralphieaversa.com house the web component – which is an exact mirror of the weeknight show: including new music, exclusive high definition video, and podcasts of segments.
