Jim Kelly was born and raised in Cincinnati, Ohio. He attended Xavier University where he studied Elementary Education. He got his start in radio driving a station vehicle to remotes for a small country station in Georgetown, Ohio. He eventually found a job covering nights at a station where he fondly recalls, “I actually played RECORDS! Remember those?”
After twelve years in Cincinnati radio, Jim moved south where he joined the staff of WRAL-FM as the station’s Music Director and the host of the popular MIX Afternoon Show.
Jim and his wife are the busy parents of three preteens. In his free time, Jim enjoys movies, golfing and reading.
