  Summary  

Jerry Doyle is an American talk radio host, conservative political commentator, and television actor. His nationally-syndicated talk show, The Jerry Doyle Show, airs throughout the United States on Talk Radio Network. As an actor, Doyle is best known for his role as Michael Garibaldi in the science fiction series Babylon 5.

  Biography  

 early life
Doyle graduated from , Class of 1974. He played varsity football and basketball. He was nicknamed "Master of the Mach", a reference to his canary-yellow and black Ford Mustang.
Doyle received a Bachelor of Science Degree in Aeronautics from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, while also receiving his flight training.

 career
Previously a corporate jet pilot and after a decade as a stockbroker, Doyle made an abrupt career change into acting in 1991. He scored a bit part on Moonlighting due to his resemblance to star Bruce Willis, 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. After starring on that show, Doyle ran for public office, but lost the race and subsequently became the host of the Jerry Doyle Show. While radio is his main occupation, Doyle continues to star in occasional voice acting and film roles.

In 2000, Doyle ran for the United States House of Representatives in California's 24th Congressional district , as the Republican Nominee. He lost his bid for Congress to the incumbent Democrat Brad Sherman. He later severed his ties with the party, and now declares himself an independent.

Weekdays from 12PM-3PM PT (3PM-6PM ET), the Jerry Doyle Show airs on the Talk Radio Network, though the show airs at different times in different markets. He differs from other conservative talk show hosts, such as Sean Hannity and Rush Limbaugh, in that he tends more towards libertarianism, his focus is not exclusively political, and his style is similar to Gonzo Journalism.

On his radio show he coined the phrase "Grapefruit Mentality", defined as the ability for the public to become interested in an object or person just because the media is paying attention to it. As an example, Doyle explains if there were a segment on the news every night with a television camera pointed at a grapefruit, people will eventually travel great distances just to see the grapefruit that was on TV. Other examples Doyle uses of Grapefruit Mentality are the images of the Virgin Mary on a grilled cheese sandwich and a Virgin Mary sighting under an overpass in Chicago. It can also refer to the public's fascination with celebrity court cases such as Michael Jackson and Robert Blake.

In December 2011, Doyle officially endorsed Texas Congressman Doctor Ron Paul for the Presidency of the United States of America.

 personal life
Doyle was married to his Babylon 5 co-star Andrea Thompson from 1995 to 1997.
