Nationally syndicated Tom Joyner saluted a friend, Jerry Boulding, who passed away on Thanksgiving. He was 75.
Boulding gave Joyner his start in radio at WVON(AM) in the Chicago area. Joyner said that Boulding was called the “Doctor of Radio,” and was at one time programming six stations at once.
Joyner also credits Boulding with being an innovator in satellite distribution of radio programming with the Boulding-programmed urban “Heart and Soul” channel.
Over his many decades Boulding was on-air and management. Besides WVON, he had stops at WOL(AM), Washington; WWRL(AM), New York; KDIA(AM), San Francisco; WCHB(AM), Detroit; WEBB(AM), Baltimore; KJCK(AM), Junction City, Kan.; and WHB(AM), Kansas City, to name a few.
