Jerry Wright is a fairly well known voice on radio in the south east. From humble beginnings in hospital radio, he approached a number of stations looking for work and finally began his radio presenting career with Radio Caroline, in January 1986, broadcasting from a converted trawler anchored in the North Sea.
Later he gained further experience with other radio stations in the south east, where he learned production techniques and other tricks of the trade.
Jerry can now be heard early mornings or (Late at Night) Monday to Friday... midnight to 5am, right here on 107.8 Radio Jackie. Regular features are: Fact Or Fib a True or False Quiz and The Night Time Challenge, a chance to test out your general knowledge, plus quirky stories from the press and great music to keep you entertained into the early hours.
