Long-time morning radio host Brian Ram of Waterford has hung up his headphones for the last time on his 15-year morning show slot on Jammin 107.7, deciding to focus his energies on a family laundry business.

Ram, also vice president of programming for Ledyard-based Full Power Radio, runs the 24/7 Laundry For Less business with his wife, Melissa Rheaume. The couple just opened a new laundry in the Laurel Hill section of Norwich to go along with a sister store at the Stop & Shop Plaza in Waterford.

“Our goal is to provide a clean, fun, and economical laundry experience for our customers,” Ram said in a release.

Ram started in radio when he was only 10 years old at Q105 before signing on with Full Power Radio owner John Fuller.

Earlier this month, Ram signed off the air for the last time, and the radio station hosted a celebration featuring local leaders, radio and television personalities along with listeners.
