Earthbound Misfit – The Heroics, Antics and Controversies of a Pioneering Television News Pilot-Reporter
Jerry Foster did what he could do best ... fly. Even critics agreed he was one of the most natural-born pilots ever at the controls of a helicopter. His involvement in rescues made him part of the story, which garnered a lot of attention, a lot of viewers, and a lot of critics. His search-and-rescue operations saved countless lives while scooping the competition. Foster did all this while flying with one hand and operating his TV camera with the other.
While station management saw a real ratings grabber, journalists saw a threat to traditional news reporting. The FAA didn't care for Foster's high-flying style and set out to ground him on several highly publicized occasions. But the cocky and quick-tempered man who was thought by so many to be a hero, had his own demons, and a past he knew would someday catch up to him.
