Tayte Ali Bio, Wiki
Tayte Ali Barbieri is best known for being the son of Ralph Barbieri, a former sports radio personality from San Francisco, California. Along with former NBA player Tom Tolbert, Barbieri hosted the afternoon sports radio show The Razor and Mr. T on KNBR from 1996 to 2012. With Barbieri, the show was the highest-rated show in the Bay Area for the 25-54 male demographic since 2000.
It is being reported that his father has died on August 3, 2020, at his home in Novato, California. He was 74, and suffered from Parkinson’s disease since he was diagnosed in 2005.
Tayte Ali Background
On June 1st, 2000, Barbieri fathered a son, Tayte Ali, via in-vitro fertilization, using an egg donor and a surrogate mother. Speaking of being a father Barbieri said, “I was driving back home after my show the other night — and I just burst into tears. It used to be when I was in love, I would find myself speeding home just to be with a woman. That is the way I feel about Tayte. I can’t wait to get home and be with him.”
Tayte has managed to remain behind the shadows as little is known about the currently 20 years old.
Ralph Barbieri On His Decision to Become a Father
Barbieri began dating more seriously and found himself asking each of his dates, within the first 10 minutes, how they felt about having children in the late 90s. He also found himself limiting his selections of female companions to women still in their childbearing years.
“After 25 years of sex, drugs and rock and roll, I started thinking it was time to start settling down,” said Barbieri. “I got into a relationship for a while, but it was short-lived. Whenever I get out of a relationship, I usually make a clean break. Not this time. We would see each other from time to time, and I found out that my ex was pregnant — and was planning on aborting the baby.”
Barbieri then 52 in 1997 begged her to change her mind
“I told her I would marry her or not marry her and have any kind of custody arrangement. I’ve never believed in abortion,” he said. “I checked with my lawyers and found out there was nothing I could do to stop her from terminating the pregnancy.”
Dejected, Barbieri says he spent a good deal of time grieving.
“To say I was devastated is an understatement. I spent two months crying myself to sleep,” he said. “If it were not for the abortion, I would never have entered into this process.”

It was a privilege to sit across the glass from Ralph Barbieri and Tom Tolbert doing afternoon updates on KNBR for several years, at the peak of their great show. It’s an era that won’t be replicated. My heartfelt condolences to Ralph’s family.”
