Ronnie has hosted many television programs throughout his career: 'The Go Show' (1968), 'Long Play' (Australia's first Rock 'n Roll quiz show), 'Young Talent Time' (1980), 'Healthy, Wealthy & Wise' lifestyle program (1990-1994), 'Strike it Lucky' quiz show (1995), and more recently 'Prophecy & Prediction - Threat or Warning?' (which he produced, hosted and created the original concept).
