Name: George Ralph Noory                                                           
Born: 4 June 1950 Detroit, Michigan                                                 
George Ralph Noory (born June 4, 1950) is an American radio broadcaster.           
As of 2006, he is the weekday host of the late-night radio talk show Coast to       
Coast AM. Noory was born in Detroit, Michigan; but he grew up in Dearborn           
Heights, Michigan. He now resides in Los Angeles, California and occasionally       
broadcasts from St. Louis, Missouri. Noory has more than 37 years of               
broadcasting experience and has won three Emmy awards.                             
Noory served nine years in the United States Naval Reserve as a full Lieutenant.   
Noory is a Roman Catholic of Lebanese descent. He has said that he became           
fascinated with ufology and the paranormal as a child after having an out-of-body   
experience. As a teenager, Noory joined NICAP, the UFO organization that was a     
precursor to today's MUFON.                                                         
Prior to hosting Coast to Coast AM, Noory hosted his own late-night radio           
program on KTRS 550 in St. Louis where he was known as "The Nighthawk." The show,   
like Coast-to-Coast, also dealt with the paranormal, and was carried by stations   
in five states.                                                                     
Noory came to St Louis in 1979 to be news director at KSDK channel 5 television     
before making the transition back to radio.                                         
At the age of 28 he became the youngest news director in the country while at       
KSTP channel 5 in St. Paul, Minnesota.                                             
While living in Detroit he worked in the news department of WCAR 1130 in Detroit,   
and later at Storer Broadcasting's Detroit CBS affiliate WJBK channel 2.           
Noory, was broadcast major at the University of Detroit.                           
Noory's family is said to be of Lebanese Christian descent and his father was       
born in Cairo, Egypt, in 1922. According to Noory, he was brought up as a Roman     
Catholic and his mother was a devout Catholic. He says he believes in "a God,"     
but some of his views, for instance, on reincarnation and the creation of the       
human race by aliens contradict typical Christian dogma.                           
George Noory is currently divorced and has said on-air that he has been married     
twice. (He once referred to the odd-hours and stress of working as a late-night     
talk show host as one of the reasons for his failed marriages.)
