R.I.P Jerry Doyle 1956-2016
About The Jerry Doyle Show
"I never realized that
growing up in Brooklyn, flying jets, working on Wall Street and starring in a sci-fi series was the prerequisite for the fast-paced
demands of talk radio," says Jerry Doyle. "But, if that's what it takes to succeed, I'm glad I did it all."
Doyle works long hours balancing his busy acting career in television and movies with his nationally syndicated radio career.
Listeners will enjoy Doyle's anecdotal humor, satirical observations and well-rounded social commentary. His
ability to choose compelling topics provokes lively conversations on the issues of the day. The program is caller-driven,
issue-oriented, and fast-paced. Listeners enjoy Doyle's wit, as well as his ability to seriously engage callers from across
the nation in fascinating conversations.
Doyle is best known for playing the character of Michael Garibaldi
on the Emmy Award winning TV series Babylon 5. In July of 1992, Doyle shot the pilot for Babylon 5, and in 1998, completed
his 110th episode of the hit series landing Doyle on the cover of TV Guide Magazine. The real Jerry Doyle is not far removed
from the character that he played, as they both uphold high standards, are outspoken and live with vivid pasts. The Jerry
Doyle Show is a mix of politics, pop culture and current events. Doyle's strong opinions, diverse background and quick wit
can appeal to all listening audiences.
At the height of a successful ten-year career on Wall Street, Doyle
decided on a new challenge. "I was 35 years old and in a position to take a shot at whatever I wanted to try," says
Doyle. "The Air Force said I was too old to fly fighter jets. I thought about becoming a fishing boat captain, before
deciding that acting seemed pretty cool," said Doyle.
In 1991, he packed up and headed to Hollywood.
With no prior acting experience, Doyle hit the streets and phones with a vengeance. Within weeks of arriving in Los Angeles,
he landed his first job. He was hired as a "day player" on The Bold and the Beautiful, this role lasted almost a
year. He then went on to star in the long-running sci-fi series Babylon 5. After the success of Babylon 5, Doyle starred in
the TNT original movies The River of Souls, A Call to Arm and to play many other roles.
Taking a hiatus from
acting in 2000, Doyle pursued yet another personal goal. A long time political junkie, he ran for the U.S House of Representatives
for California?s 24th District. While the March primary saw him become the Republican Congressional Nominee, in the November
election race he came up short.
Doyle grew up in Brooklyn, NY, the eldest son of a police officer and a stay-at-home
mom. He received a Bachelor of Science Degree in Aeronautics from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, while also receiving
his flight training. After graduation, he joined the marketing and sales division of Falcon Jet Corporation.
Doyle recently completed shooting an independent film entitled Open House and the HBO original feature Lost Treasure. He
has also starred in Code Hunter, Devious Beings and The Long Ride Home. His series work includes: NYPD Blue, JAG, Martial
Law, Sliders, Beverly Hills 90210, Homefront, and Reasonable Doubts. Doyle has also done extensive voice over work on the
animated series, Duckman, and Captain Simian, along with numerous national commercial voice campaigns.

Multiple Sclerosis Board of Directors. He has raised funds for many charities including Disabled American Veterans, UCLA Medical
Center, Breast Cancer, Aids Walk-LA, Cystic Fibrosis and the Motion Picture and Television Fund. He has received numerous
