Jerry Pearce won’t give up.
Ever since Pearce started producing and hosting his “Radio Detective” show, the former law enforcement officer has had to battle to keep the program on the air. He’s gone through multiple radio station changes, syndication, not being syndicated, a short run in Los Angeles and back to being syndicated. The program also was broadcast on local TV through KGMC (Channel 43.1) in 2001.
Now that his stint with the Genesis Communications Network has ended, Pearce is keeping his show going through a locally produced podcast. All you have to do is go to www.jerrypearce.com and then click on http://theradiodetective.buzzsprout.com.
“I will be putting new material up on the air daily. As usual we will cover crime, corruption, politics, human behavior and some good old-fashioned general discussion about our country and community. There will be guest interviews as well,” Pearce says. “As you know this is not a politically correct radio program. I call it as it really is, as I always have.”
