Gerald is a Moultrie, GA native who began covering Pasco High School football and basketball (and little league baseball) for Dade City’s WDCF in the early 70s. By the 90’s, he was still at it and going strong. Definitely no newcomer to the airwaves, he had been on Pasco County radio off and on since 1966 when he worked with WPAS in Zephyrhills.
Newton, also a teacher and athletic director at Pasco Jr. High in Dade City, as well as basketball and baseball coach at Zephyrhills High School, has also been sports editor of the Pasco News and a sports writer for East Pasco’s Focus Magazine.
Gerald passed away May 5, 2022 at age 80.
