Jerry Baker Named Broadcaster of the Year
Jerry Baker of WEIS Radio is the 2018 Alabama Broadcasters Association’s Broadcaster of the Year. Baker has been in the broadcasting business for 35 years since he first started a radio station in Centre in 1983.
Baker saw the need for a platform to spread more local information. The WEIS Radio Owner brings the ‘News you can use’ to the Centre community every morning from five to eight. Baker has taken WEIS Radio and made it a trademark in the community.
