Gary Geers


Another good friend of RJ and broadcasting icon from Philadelphia Gary Geers has passed away. He worked at KYW-TV, WRCV-TV and WPTZ-TV, all Channel 3 call letters.

RJ spent time with Gary in the basement studios of the old KYW-TV at 1619 Walnut Street where Gary, Mike Douglas and Ernie Kovacs originated their shows. What a history lesson for RJ starting in the business in those days!

RJ first met Gary when Gary was a part-time announcer at the old Channel 12, then known as WVUE and WPFH, when it was a commercial TV station on Shipley Road in Wilmington, Delaware.
