The ace journalist and ex-military personnel stands strong on honesty, courage, and integrity as his core values.
To have the vision to attain a particular dream is one thing, but to go beyond that, take the required actions, take calculated risks and relentlessly move ahead in one’s chosen path to turn those visions into a beautiful reality is a different thing altogether. To belong to the latter category, people have had to surrender to their goals and visions in life and have had to dive deep into their desired industries to ultimately emerge as true-blue professionals. We couldn’t help but notice how ex-award-winning military personnel from the US army created a unique path for himself in the world of journalism and now serves as the proud Editor-in-Chief of The Hype Magazine; we are talking about Jerry Doby, who is also known as one of the pillars of American journalism.
Jerry Doby confesses how he learned many great values right since his childhood as he was a military brat and lived many experiences which have been instrumental in making him the professional and, most importantly, the individual he is today. Speaking more about turning his life 360 degrees and starting a new in the journalism sector after leaving the military, Jerry Doby says that things were not as easy as it seemed then, but it was the hunger to do more and be more that kept him going. So, he had begun writing during his downtime while he was deployed in Afghanistan in a combat zone, and during this time, music from home became a huge thing. He then started expressing himself in a digital journal, which later turned into citizen journalism.
In the very demanding times he faced during his military days, he kept writing, and after the many challenging experiences there, writing became his sense of peace and saving grace. A certain feature article on a former freestyle Friday champion on 106 & Park named Big Jigg on Yahoo attracted the attention of the CEO Jameelah “Just Jay” Wilkeson of The Hype Magazine, and there Jerry Doby was, finding a new path for himself as an executive editor joining the magazine in 2012. In a year, he created massive growth for the magazine, leading it on newsstands as printed issues from being a digital-only media and later became the Editor-in-Chief.
There is so much today that Jerry Doby wishes to do in the media and journalism sectors in the US and with The Hype Magazine has many news plans that he is working around to up the game for the media outlet in the coming years.
