Peter Gordon, known on air as PG, is programme controller and presenter of the breakfast show on 96.4 The Eagle, a local radio station for Surrey and Hampshire, based in Guildford, Surrey, England.

Gordon was born in Guildford and educated at Cranleigh School and the University of York, where he began his career as a presenter on the student radio station. He joined the BBC as a feature presenter before returning to Surrey to work as a news, sport and music presenter for County Sound, Radio Mercury and 106.6 Star FM. He has appeared on television in ITV's The Village and British National Ice Hockey League.[1]

Gordon has been with The Eagle since its launch and was the first presenter to speak on the new station when it went on air on 4 January 1996.

He regularly appears in Christmas pantomimes at Guildford's Yvonne Arnaud Theatre, most recently in Cinderella[2] from December 2013 to January 2014.

He has used his local celebrity status to support local charities such as Children with Special Needs Foundation [3] and CHASE.[4][5] He has also supported other local initiatives such as Surrey Police's "Watch your drinks" campaign in 2003.[6]

Gordon worked with the writer Albert Jack on the 2010 book What Caesar did for my Salad.
