Jim has been working in the radio/TV business since 1971 via a Boy Scout Explorer post. "It all started at a 1000 watt radio station in Glens Falls where I cut my teeth and stained my fingers" doing the local morning news at WWSC. After honing his craft at Ithaca College, Jim covered the beat at WVIP in Westchester County New York, as a news reporter and caretaker of an infant Harris System 90 automation system which was good training for his stint at WPTZ in Plattsburgh and WIXT in Syracuse for his position as a master control operator. From there, it was a quick step into the news reporting and production department where Jim produced commercials for 11 years. In 1988,under new management, Jim took on the role of production manager, eventually assuming the role of Operation Director shortly before his retirement from TV in 2008. Since his "semi-retirement" he returned to his first love of radio. After a ten year stint at WOKO, KOOL 105 and WJOY, Jim is now the morning DJ at WNBZ, "playing all the hits for you, wherever you may be."
