Big Jim

Born and raised in Spokane, Washington, I got my start in radio with a fight in school -- yeah, no kidding! Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. I served the U.S. Army in South Korea and worked for several years as a fire fighter. When I'm not at home or work you can catch me building haunted houses.

Don’t Forget 2014 Winter Olympics Opening Ceremonies TONIGHT 7:30 p.m. on NBC

Americans haven't been very excited about the Sochi Olympics. Shaun White won't be there, Lindsay Vonn won't be there. People are upset about Russia's treatment of our government and their own minorities. Plus, Sochi seems like a boring city with incomplete infrastructure.
