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 children (ages 9 through 11). In his free time, Jim enjoys movies, golfing and reading.
