In addition to hosting weekend newscasts on TPR, Jerry writes news and feature stories. His stories are regularly featured on the national NPR news broadcasts, as well as the statewide news program The Texas Standard.

Before coming to Texas Public Radio in 2020, Jerry was an on-demand air charter pilot. His love for flying is life-long. He's a certified flight instructor and has flown various aircraft from single engine Cessnas to the King Air B200 twin turboprop.

He has over 40 years experience in broadcasting and was well known among San Antonio radio listeners as "Fred Zeppelin" as both an airborne traffic reporter and afternoon and morning host on the classic rock station KZEP for 11 years.

Jerry spent his younger days playing drums with the country band "Mason Dixon" and has continued to play in his spare time in several local San Antonio funk, blues, rock and country bands.
