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 and feels lucky to have the opportunity to play Carolina’s Greatest Hits.

I’m a North Carolina native and have lived in the Triangle most of my life. I have been known to say “y’all” from time to time. Growing up in Asheboro, I listened to the iconic Raleigh stations and could only dream of working at them. I have worked in radio and played music most of my life, and combined these experiences to write nationally syndicated radio comedy material for many years.
When I’m not talking to you on KIX, I’m playing keyboards and guitar with local bands, or chillin’ and grillin’. I love the crisp NC fall weather and college football… even though I’m an NCSU grad, I find it in my heart from time to time to pull for the “other schools.”
I’m happy to be back On The Dial with a cool station and great listeners. Let’s have some fun in the afternoon. I’ll try to make your drive home a steering-wheel-tapping time… with Carolina’s Greatest Hits!
Monday-Friday 7:00 p.m.-10:00 p.m.
Sunday 12:00 p.m.-4:00 p.m.

I started in radio when it was cool to play vinyl (I know, it’s cool again). I caught the radio bug and never looked back!
I was on KIX 102 FM doing the morning show for six years when I became a mom. Fast forward three years, and I’m back – loving my job and the listeners!!!
We moved to Raleigh from Green Bay a number of years ago, and yup, I’m still a huge Packer fan. We have a Packer wall of fame in our house lol! Even our dog, Max, wears a Packer collar.
On weekends, you may see me “treasure hunting” at the flea market, estate sales, and thrift stores.
I’m an animal lover, so when I see one, I can’t resist going up to it, whether it’s a dog, cat, or horse. I’m a big supporter of animal rescues and the SPCA. We are always adding to our furry family 🙂
