Jerry Gerson Bio
The year was 1968. I had changed my major at Georgia to Journalism and the rest history, which has now repeated itself. Starting the on-air part of broadcast career at WDOL AM & FM, I was so fortunate to be hired by the late and really great Charles Giddens to work at WRFC. So many of us on TGC Radio today worked for Charles, who was the best GM ever, and created so many great memories.
Continuing on after graduation and marriage to Nancy in 1971, I was coaxed into the sales department at WRFC, went onto help start WAGQ-FM, Q-105 in Athens as Station and Sales Manager. Continuing to create and record voices and commercials along the way helped me have my fun. The management side kept us moving, going to great radio stations like ROCK 105 in Jacksonville, 98 KZEW Dallas, Z-104.5 Tulsa, Baltimore and KISS-FM San Antonio, TX.
Transitioning out of broadcast, I created The Gerson Group and combined forces with a great friend into a very successful consultancy in exhibit and event marketing, which spanned 24 years. Being called back into radio by Sanders Hickey to be a part of TGC Radio is actually a dream come true for me. I love being back on the air and sharing it with Chuck, Randy, Kelly, Ron, Jeff and Allen in this most experienced team of great talent. Thank you so much for listening!
