Almost every talk show host has the dream of national syndication. Elizabeth Dougherty has accomplished it. This Bishop Moore High School and NYIT grad grew up listening to Orlando radio and now hosts her own LIVE syndicated show, "The Dougherty Report", Sunday nights from 7pm to 10pm on GCNLive.com and in Central Florida from her flagship station, Orlando’s NewsRadio 102.5 and AM-540 WFLA. In the Tampa-St. Petersburg market, her show airs over MoneyTalk 1010 WHFS.
In 2010, Dougherty created the "Florida Favors Radio Show” and "Food Nation Radio Network" on Tampa Bay’s AM-860 WGUL to talk about food, restaurants, trends and evolving food safety policies. Sensing the need to cover more relevant subjects, she changed the name and focus of the program to “The Dougherty Report” and developed an entertaining yet informative show that discusses social issues and public policy.
The show is about people, not politics, and Dougherty breaks down for listeners the collusion between government and big business versus the average citizen. Having spent years among representatives on Capitol Hill, networking in one of the most private business clubs in D.C. and a former member of Reagan's Presidential Roundtable, Elizabeth brings an insider perspective to share with her audience on "The Dougherty Report."
She has written for numerous publications about issues related to business, finance, labor relations and food safety with notable guests such as Anthony Bourdain, Aaron Sanchez, Claudine Pepin, Congressman Kucinich, representatives from the FDA and USDA, whistleblowers from GMO seed companies and the NSA along with award-winning journalists from the Tampa Bay Times, Washington Post and Bloomberg (just to name a few).
Valentines Day 2013 brought wedding bells as she married longtime Tampa Bay producer Michael Serio, the show’s co-host and executive producer. Working together, they launched the show into national syndication in June of 2013.
