Beginning with the 2004 football season, Jerry has added the role of pre and post game host for Giants football coverage. In addition, Jerry also covers the New Jersey Nets for WFAN.

Jerry is an avid golfer and Dallas Cowboys fan. Although Steve Somers hates the Dallas Cowboys, he and Jerry have worked through their differences! In fact, Jerry’s favorite on-air moment is when Steve introduced Jerry to the listening audience for the first time. It was a memorable experience since Steve is the first person Jerry ever heard on WFAN.
Jerry, his wife Kim and his son Matthew currently reside on the Jersey Shore.
