Born and raised in London, Ontario, Gerry Richardson attended Canadore College in North Bay, Ontario. After graduating with a Radio Broadcasting Diploma, Gerry applied to radio stations clear across Canada, Australia, and the UK. He was hired as a sports producer in his hometown of London, where he had to learn about all kinds of sports… all kinds of quick.
Gerry worked his way through just about every job at the London station, from Board Operator to Remote Broadcast Expert, to Commercial Producer and fill-in for the Assistant Program Director.
He went on to work as a Programming Producer and Midday Host at a mid-western Ontario station before continuing his journey west to Winnipeg. Gerry landed a Morning Show Producer position at 680 CJOB where he spent his mornings shaking his head and adding commentary from behind the glass.
“Behind-The-Glass Gerry” left the Winnipeg radio team in the summer of 2018 to join the television team as a Producer with Global News at 10.
