Doug Pike has been a writer, broadcaster, editor and photographer for more than 35 years. His early work was in the outdoors, where - with considerable overlap - he was a columnist for the Houston Chronicle (23 years), on the masthead of Field & Stream (21 years) and editor of Tide magazine (10 years). During that time, Doug won more than 100 state and national awards for his work. Show More
His outdoors/golf radio shows launched in 2000 and continue today on SportsTalk790. He also currently is a columnist for Saltwater Sportsman and Texas Fish & Game magazines. In 2014, when his mother's health began to fail, Doug discovered the difficulty experienced by seniors and their caregivers in finding necessary services and facilities, and he also realized that there was no local radio programming dedicated to seniors. Soon after, he introduced Fifty+ to Houston and since then has conducted several thousand interviews on topics of interest to people who have done a lot of living and intend to do more.
Fifty+ covers everything from medicine to music, from finances to friendships, and walking sticks to wine tours, all from the perspective of someone who is part of and who wholeheartedly embraces this demo. Nothing is off limits, and no topic is ignored on Fifty+. The information is serious when it should be, humorous when it can be, and always entertaining. Fifty+ airs weekdays at noon on AM950KPRC.
