Jeff Bolton

A dynamic, nationally recognized talk radio show host at Talk Radio 1210 WPHT in Philadelphia, Jeff offers a vibrant American perspective on both local and national issues with a combination of independent thought, scathing humor and a tireless commitment to broadcasting “on the scene” where news and talk collide. Not content with sitting in the studio seat and pontificating, Bolton has been nationally recognized and honored for his international groundbreaking talk radio broadcasts from Iraq, Afghanistan, Sri Lanka and Japan, and for his national broadcasts from New York after 9-11 and New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina.

In 2003, he was the first talk show host in America to broadcast full-length talk shows from the Middle East war zones, and also completed the first ever live talk radio broadcasts at sea with the U.S. Navy aboard the aircraft carrier Carl Vinson. Jeff also completed a 90-minute documentary titled America’s Marine Aviators for PBS that tells the story of one of America’s smallest and most valiant fighting forces. He is one of the few civilians in the world to complete the U.S. Navy’s grueling water survival training program for pilots, enabling him to fly front line military aircraft at sea in the carrier environment with the Navy and Marine Corps. Bolton has flown in more than twenty current and vintage fixed and rotary wing combat aircraft including the FA-18D Hornet, AV-8B Harrier, F-16D Viper, and AH-1W Cobra, and has completed carrier operations at sea with multiple catapult launches and arrested landings. He and his wife of more than 25 years have two children. Jeff is heard exclusively on Talk Radio 1210 WPHT.
