Kim Peterson

Kim Peterson (known to fans as "The Kimmer") is a U.S. television and radio journalist. He recently hosted a news/information talk-show on Atlanta's WYAY NewsRadio 106.7 from 3:00PM to 6:00PM EST. The Show consisted of Peterson as host, Pete Davis as co-host/sports anchor/producer, Chad "The Hangman" Potier as associate producer/call screener and show engineer Jon Michael "Jon-Boy" Drain. From 1992 through 2006, he hosted a radio talk show on WGST-AM in Atlanta, Georgia. Formerly a United States Marine from 1966 to 1969, he served in Vietnam during the Vietnam War and was discharged as a sergeant. Before becoming a radio host, Peterson was a television anchor in Chicago and New Orleans. He was on rival news-talk station WSB before he came to WGST. After his firing from WSB Peterson would refer to his former employer as "WSOB" and "WBS" (and sometimes "We Suck and Blither").

Peterson was a donor for the Marine's Toys for Tots Christmas drive, and from 1997 to 2005 he produced a comedy bits CD, donating all the proceeds to the drive. In addition he hosted an annual charity golf tournament. Peterson is an avid motorcycle enthusiast.

From December 2005 to May 5, 2006, members of Peterson's support team started to lose their positions at WGST. Jim Gossett, a voice impersonator who specialized in past presidents Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush, George W. Bush, and classic celebrities such as Johnny Carson, among others, quit his job in December 2005. Two months later, WGST-AM's sports director, Pete Davis, was fired for reasons not publicly disclosed. A final firing among Peterson's team was on May 5, when his producer, Wayne Kitchens, was terminated. Kitchens told an online media outlet (Buzz) that management was upset when he didn't bleep out an anti-Muslim statement Peterson said on the air the week prior to his firing. Kitchens has speculated that the firings were an attempt to force Peterson to quit.

Peterson's final broadcast for WGST was on November 20, 2006. The station announced the next day that he was no longer on the air. Provided by Wikipedia
