Jerry Doyle (born July 16, 1956, in Brooklyn, New York) is an American talk radio host, right-libertarian political commentator, television actor and founder of the content platform EpicTimes.

His nationally syndicated talk show, The Jerry Doyle Show, airs throughout the United States on Talk Radio Network, and has been described as the "fastest growing show in TRN Enterprises’ history".[1] As an actor, Doyle is best known for his role as Michael Garibaldi in the science fiction series Babylon 5 (1994–1998).

Early life

Doyle grew up in Brooklyn, New York, raised as the eldest son of a police officer and a housewife. He spent the first six months of his life in an orphanage before being adopted.[2] He graduated from Pope John XXIII Regional High School in Sparta, New Jersey in 1974, where he played varsity football and basketball. In 1978, Doyle earned a Bachelor of Science Degree in Aeronautics from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University,[3] while also receiving his flight training.[4]


Previously a corporate jet pilot and after a decade as a stockbroker with Drexel Burnham Lambert,[3] Doyle made an abrupt career change into acting in 1991. He scored a bit part on Moonlighting due to his purported resemblance to Bruce Willis,[5] and then had a recurring role as a lawyer on the soap opera The Bold and the Beautiful. Babylon 5 was his first significant starring role, starring as security officer Michael Garibaldi. Doyle has quipped that on Babylon 5 he was a "Mick from Brooklyn playing a Wop from Mars."[6] Later, he became the host of the Jerry Doyle Show. While radio is his main occupation, Doyle occasionally works as an actor.[5]

Doyle is a frequent guest on Newsmax Media TV, primarily on the program Midpoint with Ed Berliner. He has also been a featured guest on Fox & Friends and on CNN with Don Lemon.[5]


Weekdays from 3PM–6PM PT (6PM–9PM ET), the Jerry Doyle Show airs on the Talk Radio Network, although the show airs at different times in different markets. In December 2011, Doyle officially endorsed Ron Paul for the Presidency of the United States.[7]

He was announced as the replacement program for The Savage Nation in Talk Radio Network's lineup in October 2012. The Savage Nation, at the time the third most-listened-to radio talk show in the United States, abruptly ended its run September 26 when host Michael Savage won a lawsuit against TRN. Doyle will replace Savage on all of Savage's approximately 300 affiliates except for those who have chosen their own replacement programs. He launched the new media content platform EpicTimes in February 2013, which serves as a "one stop shop" for both hard hitting news of the day as well as entertaining "water cooler" type pieces.[8][9]

Frequent guests on the radio show have included former United States Deputy Undersecretary of Defense Jed Babbin, retired U.S. Army Lieutenant Colonel Anthony Shaffer, actress, author and blogger Anita Finlay, Nick Gillespie, Matt Welch, and, providing weekly film reviews, Kurt Loder. He has welcomed guests from the Manhattan Institute for Policy Research, including Kay S. Hymowitz, Steven Malanga and Avik Roy.

Personal life

Doyle was married to his Babylon 5 co-star Andrea Thompson from 1995-97.[10]
