The Rev. Jesse Jackson returns to radio in February with twice-daily 90-second vignettes focused on issues that affect blacks. “The Jesse Jackson Commentary” premieres Feb. 1 and is scheduled for syndicated broadcast on more than 120 radio stations coast-to-coast, said Bob Dockery Jr., president of Syndicate It Productions in Los Angeles. “We are excited to have someone as dynamic as Jesse Jackson back on the air,” Dockery said in a press release. “Certainly there is no more eloquent spokesperson for Americans than Jesse Jackson. He transcends race, color and creed and has a true understanding of the problems that face us all.” Jackson did a similar radio program from 1985 to the summer of 1987 before he suspended the show to run for the Democratic presidential nomination.
