Monday – Friday: 10AM to 3PM
Big Jim grew up in Raleigh when it was a much, much smaller city. Jim attended Sanderson High School and NC State. One of his first radio jobs was on the original WKIX, where he played many of the songs that KIX plays today. Big Jim is a US Air Force veteran and holds a Master’s Degree from West Virginia University. Some of the places where Jim has lived and worked in radio are Fort Walton Beach, FLA; Morgantown, West Virginia; Wilmington DE; Nashville TN; Philadelphia PA and of course, Raleigh-Durham NC (where he has worked on variations of 10 radio stations over the decades).
Jim has been married for nearly 30 years and has 2 adult daughters. His wife works at UNC Hospital. In his off-hours, Jim enjoys listening to and playing music on one of his 4 guitars, visiting with friends, cooking, hiking and martial arts. Jim has practiced 5 different martial arts over the years (2 types of Karate, Tae Kwan Do, Aikido and Tai Chi). Currently, Jim practices Chen style Tai Chi and it is a regular part of his life.
Big Jim really, really enjoys his job on KIX 102.9 and feels lucky to have the opportunity to play Carolina’s Greatest Hits.
