Jerry passed away around 4:30 this morning...  This is a real sad day for talk radio. I am honored to  have had him on my show once, and got the chance to speak to him a couple of times a few years ago.  RIP Mr Pippin....

(quoting from Janet Sailor):...."Jerry Pippin always wanted to be in broadcasting. He began hanging out at KBIX and KMUS, the two local radio stations in his home town of Muskogee, Oklahoma when he was still in junior high school. After a couple of years, they got tired of him being a groupie, and gave him a job as one of the youngest announcers in the history of the station. Radio was good to Pippin, and he continued working full time in the field, also attending Northeastern State University in nearby Tahlequah, Oklahoma.

After college, a stint in the Army, and buying part ownership in a radio station, Pippin returned to broadcasting and was named the Billboard Magazine “Disc Jockey of the Year” in 1972.

Stand-up comedy took center stage in his life in the 1980s; but by 1987, Pippin had decided to get out of the comedy business and return to broadcasting. His syndicated show was broadcast first on the Independent Broadcasters Network, then Talk America, and later on his own ad hoc network that claimed more than 189 affiliates, many in major markets such as Phoenix, Dallas, Denver, Kansas City, and Tampa.

In 1998, Jerry returned to his home town to do syndication radio projects. In 1999 he packaged his own eclectic radio program, “The Jerry Pippin Show,” using elements of news, talk, oldies, and personality radio on KBIX in Muskogee, streaming its signal over the Internet.

Pippin added highly-successful UFO, Paranormal and Elvis content and programming to the mix in 2000. His “Memories of the 20th Century” programs received special recognition from the Oklahoma Broadcasters Association. He also received the 2003 Trail Blazer Award at the Fourth Annual Bare Bones International Independent Film Festival, for promoting Arts and Entertainment.

This opened the door to implementing a successful Internet radio project, including a popular web site and its associated on-demand 24/7 programming, which has grown to reach well over a million listeners around the world."
