Roger has made several careers out of holding people accountable as a trial attorney, political leader, and for the past 22 years, as the number one radio host in Southern California. Roger's straight talk and dynamic personality inspire his listeners to turn talk into action.
When the Republicans took control of the House in the '94 election, Roger and 200 listeners, who paid their own way, set up the first talk show broadcast from the Capitol Building in Washington, DC to lobby to make the Contract With America a reality and not just a platform. The event became known as "Hold Their Feet to the Fire" (HTFTTF) and Roger has led listener trips back to DC 11 more times since, lobbying for a balanced budget, welfare reform, and border control.
In April, 2007, Roger organized the latest HTFTTF to include 37 other talk show hosts and over 500 listeners who paid their own way to lobby for border enforcement, against amnesty, and for pardons for jailed border patrol agents Ignacio Ramos and Jose Compean. This trip was the catalyst for a nationwide movement against the Kennedy-Bush Immigration Amnesty bill, which was defeated in June, 2007 in the US Senate.
Roger's commitment on the immigration issue dates back to 1989 when Roger listener and border patrol widow Muriel Watson organized a series of demonstrations at the San Diego - Tijuana border, which came to be known as "Light up the Border".
Roger and a handful of other talk show hosts in California were instrumental in their listeners gathering over a million signatures to force newly reelected Governor Gray Davis into a recall election which he lost to Arnold Schwarzenegger.
Political activism is not the only concern among Roger's listeners. He has also devoted many shows to projects that benefit the community.
Roger was born in Compton, California, graduated from St. Augustine High School in San Diego, from UC Santa Barbara, and from UC Hastings College of Law. He is married to Cindy and they have two grown sons, James and Christopher.
