Jerry Vandeventer


Jerry was a graduate of Chamblee High School, served in the U. S. Navy during WWII and attended Georgia Institute of Technology, where he was a member of Alpha Tau Omega fraternity. His career in radio spanned more than four decades including employment at WSB, the Protestant Radio and Television Center, and work as a free lance producer specializing in radio commercials. Jerry hosted the "Nightbeat" program in the 50's attracting national attention as the signal boomed over most of the country in the evening hours.  He holds the dubious distinction of  hosting WSB's final broadcast from the top of the Biltmore Hotel on December 28, 1955.
