BIOGRAPHY

Roger Hedgecock's straight talk and dynamic personality have always enabled him to inspire his listeners into action.  When the Republicans took control of the House in the '94 election, Roger and his audience talked about making the Contract With America a reality and not just a platform. Over 200 listeners paid their own way to join his broadcast in Washington, D.C. to demand that the new majority keep their word - and for the most part, they did.  The event became known as  "Hold Their Feet to the Fire."

 

Roger has been back to D.C. 11 more times for balanced budget, welfare reform, and border control; and he even expanded the trip to Sacramento two times lobbying to balance the state budget and get state border control. In April 2007 the event received national media attention as 38 other hosts from across the country joined Roger to create a Radio Row in D.C. for 3 days addressing the problems of illegal immigration and border security. 

 

Roger's generous heart and incredible drive have helped his listeners to support our troops.  Shortly after 9/11, the Skipper of the carrier Constellation invited Roger to address the ship's company as they prepared for war.  Roger promised those young sailors and marines that he and his audience would take care of their families while they were away fighting to protect their country.

 

Roger Hedgecock has been the number one radio host in San Diego, CA for the past 21 years.  Well known as "The Radio Mayor of San Diego," Roger is a former Mayor and served as a member of the San Diego County Board of Supervisors for six years and before that as City Attorney for Del Mar.  He hosts the Roger Hedgecock Show Monday-Friday, on KOGO.  Formerly a frequent guest host of the Rush Limbaugh Show, he has also broadcast regular news commentaries on several San Diego TV stations. Roger went national in January 5, 2009 in the 6p-9p EST, Monday-Friday time slot on Radio America.

Roger Hedgecock has long made a career out of holding people accountable... in his earlier years as a politician and for the past 21 years as the number one radio host in San Diego, CA.  Roger is a former Mayor of the City of San Diego.  He served as a member of the San Diego County Board of Supervisors for six years and before that as City Attorney for Del Mar.

 

Roger has received numerous local awards for broadcasting including, most recently, the 2004, 2005, and 2006 awards for Best Talk Show, and the 2002 and 2004 Excellence in Journalism Award from the San Diego Press Club; and the Best Talk Show Award given at the 4th Annual Achievement in Radio ceremonies in October 2002.

Roger has made a theme of creating responsibility and awareness among his listeners and his question to them is often, “What are you going to do about it?”  With the help of his listening audience, Roger has become quite the activist…in addition to HTFTTF and Homefront San Diego there are other successful endeavors:

 

  • The yearly “radiothon” fundraiser for the St. Vincent de Paul Village and Toussaint Teen Center.  Over the last 17 years, over $5 million has been raised for homeless and troubled teens.  In 2002 the St. Vincent de Paul Villages awarded Roger and his wife Cindy their highest honor, the Pierre Toussaint Award.

 

  • In 2002 and 2003, Roger partnered with Dr. Laura Schlessinger to raise almost $500,000 each year for Dr. Laura’s “My Stuff Bags” in a radiothon at the San Diego Center for Children. 

 

  • In 1989, as the San Diego-Tijuana border descended into chaos, Muriel Watson, the widow of a Border Patrol agent, called the show to tell Roger that she and her friends were going down to the border on a Friday night and shine their car headlights over the border to ignite the light of truth on the border lawlessness that the media studiously ignored.  She invited Roger and the listeners to join her - and over 1,500 people did. She called the demonstration "Light Up The Border" and it began the whole national movement to control the border.

 

  • When the Left dusted off the Vietnam War playbook and began demonstrating at Navy base gates in San Diego against the Iraq War, veterans and reserves in Roger’s audience knew what to do - wherever and whenever the Un-patriotic Left gathered for the cameras, "Protest Warrior" would demonstrate for America - confounding the Left and the media.

 

Roger attended San Diego State University and is a graduate of the University of California, Santa Barbara.  He received his law degree from U. C. Hastings College of Law and is a member of the California Bar Association.
