Jerry Hoyt – Sun 10a-3p

I caught the radio bug early. When I was five years old, I put on my dad’s headphones, grabbed a toilet paper tube, and pretended to “be the man on the radio.” According to my mother, that’s what I told people I wanted to be when I grew up.

Then, when I went into Plaza Junior High School, they had a radio and TV department. Long live WPJH! Needless to say I was hooked.

I started my career in 1996 as a part-time jock at WNVZ (Z104)/Norfolk, VA. After adding on-air duties at cluster sister stations WWDE and WFOG, I was the final evening air talent for WVKL (Kool 95.7). I then was the night air talent for WAFX (106.9 The Fox) from 2001-2002. I also was a part-time on-air talent for WWVZ/WWZZ (Z104) in Washington, D.C. from 2002-2003. In 2003, I moved to the Washington, D.C. area, where I began part-time at WARW (94.7 The Arrow) in late 2003. From there, I moved up to full-time night jock, and later OM of WTGB (now WIAD). In addition, I was PD of “HFS” on 94.7 HD-2 from 2009-2011.

After a brief period as PD of WHFS-A 1580 in DC, I spent nearly a year at WFLS in Fredericksburg, VA and worked at Total Traffic Network in D.C.

Missing my hometown, I moved back to Hampton Roads back in 2014. I returned to the company where it all started for me, Max Media, in February 2015, as a weekend and fill-in part-timer for 92.9 The WAVE, and occasionally on our sister stations!

I love the Redskins, NASCAR, Langley Speedway, and photography.
