Doug Limerick is an American radio personality. He has been a news correspondent for ABC Radio Networks since 1982.[1] In March 2009, he was chosen as a possible successor to Paul Harvey on the radio show The Rest of the Story.[2] Mike Huckabee replaced Limerick after two weeks.[3]


Limerick, a native of Shelby, North Carolina, started his career working the night shift, playing Top 40 music at WOHS radio while still in high school in the early 1960s.

He majored in speech at Wake Forest University and joined the United States Air Force. Then he worked as a Russian linguist.

His broadcast career included stations in Monroe, Columbia and Charlotte, North Carolina in the Carolinas. His big break came at WKIX in Raleigh, where he was morning news editor. He was also morning news editor and anchor at WHDH in Boston, Massachusetts during the 1970s.

During a career in which he interviewed Bob Hope, George Wallace, Spiro Agnew, and even Paul Harvey, Limerick won two Edward R. Murrow news awards.


Limerick lives in Fairfax Station, Virginia. He is married and has three daughters.[4]
