Former Macon city spokesman Ron Wildman to retire

Mayor Robert Reichert’s office announced Tuesday that Ron Wildman, a former mayoral spokesman, will retire from the city.

After working in television news for more than 30 years, Wildman was hired by former Mayor Jack Ellis as the city’s public affairs officer. Wildman took the job in 2000 and continued after Reichert took office.

In addition to work as the city’s spokesman, Wildman revamped and operated Cox Communications cable channel 14, which broadcasts city events and public meetings such as City Council meetings.
