Having appeared over the last 40 years on over 3,000 network affiliate television and radio shows, Jon McClure found station after station requesting him back. Jon is a total food expert who worked in the grocery, seafood, bakery/deli and meat departments of the top national food chains. Later, after teaching radio, TV and communication in college for five years, Jon went on to several cooking schools to refine his food experience.
Jon McClure moved to Alabama in 1983 and wrote his best selling Birmingham's Best Restaurants' Cookbook, appearing as a regular on the "Tom York Show" and later started Mediacom Marketing, a Gregerson's Foods subsidiary, where Jon produced food, home, health, recreation and home builder shows in convention centers across the country and in cities throughout Alabama. This statewide travel over a 20-year period hatched the idea for Alabama's Best Restaurants' Cookbook.Learn More
