Jerry Krumbholz

In February 1955, 24-year old Chicago native Jerry Krumbholz arrived in Tampa to attend the University of Tampa. He had recently finished a stint in the Air Force and hadn’t settled on a definite career direction, but was fascinated by broadcasting. So it wasn’t surprising that he got involved with WTUN-FM, the campus radio station.

Jerry became a regular voice there and hosted the UT “Spartan” football broadcasts. However, his work with the college station was not a paying job. It was all volunteer work – for the experience. His first real paying radio job was with Tampa’s WPKM-FM in the Bayshore Royal Hotel at Howard Avenue and Bayshore Boulevard.

In 1956, Jerry found out that Tampa’s new CBS-TV affiliate WTVT was looking for a weekend booth announcer so he auditioned for the position and was hired immediately. Six months later he went full time. He moved his family to Memphis in 1962 to attend the Southern College of Optometry. Upon receiving his Doctor of Optometry three years later, he returned to Tampa and set up his business.

Today (2008) Jerry continues to do freelance voice work for area media and ad agencies, and also runs two Eye Doctor’s Optical Outlet stores in Tampa and Brandon.
