RJ King

The many faces of RJ King. He was brought to RJ Ron Joseph's attention
for he is the bearer of the same initials! Now internationally recognized
after a year in the business, he is a top model in Milan, London and New York
He was living in his home town of St. Louis, in Middle America before he
rocketed to stardom on the modeling circuit in less than a year
RJ King definitely has a hot career!

RJ now does a weekly radio show on Cruisin 92.1 from the Philadelphia area. The show is syndicated on a number of stations around the country. RJ also sustains the reruns of the nostalgic Disco USA TV series, which plays in Philadelphia as well as in other parts of the country. RJ has no regrets. He has taken the twists and turns and the ups and downs of fame. He's the guy that's holding onto yesterday, and as he says on his radio show each week, you can see on this site how true it is. If memories of Ron Joseph (RJ) were worth a penny, RJ and Company would all be billionaires!
