Jesse Lee Peterson      

Radio & TV Talk Show Host, Media Commentator, Author, Activist & Pastor

Jesse Lee Peterson grew up on a plantation in Alabama under Jim Crow. He moved to Los Angeles at 18, worked for 20 years, and created a cleaning business. At 40, Peterson founded BOND, a nonprofit dedicated to “Rebuilding the Family by Rebuilding the Man.” He counsels men and women, young and old, dealing with emotions, relationships, and personal problems. He speaks in schools, universities, juvenile detention centers, jails, prisons, and churches. He leads Sunday services forums, town halls, rallies, protests, and conferences. He runs a home for young men, helping them learn responsibility. He led after-school character-building programs, and founded a private school, BOND Leadership Academy. He’s a radio and TV talk show host, media commentator, speaker, columnist, author, activist, pastor, and counselor.

The Jesse Lee Peterson Radio Show deals with spiritual and emotional issues, sparks relatable discussions, and brings stories and topics in the news from a unique, independent angle — ever open and engaging to disagreement, questions, and new insight. He is also a long-time TV host, and in 2016 launched "The Fallen State" series aimed at dealing with relationships and root issues causing the division America and our world experience today.

By expressing his honest, independent thinking and his simple, no-excuse approach to life, Peterson offers media viewpoints on current events that many perceive as provocative and “controversial” today. But he has won the respect of the most respected, recognized names in media over the past two decades — including fair-minded men like Bill O’Reilly, Sean Hannity, Dennis Prager, Dennis Miller, Bill Cunningham, and Steve Malzberg.
