Good Old Jim Scott

Jim Scott, behind the mic for the WLW morning show.

Last April, Cincinnati radio legend Jim Scott retired, signing off from his long-time morning show on WLW. He started his local broadcasting career with Top-40 powerhouse WSAI in 1968. He had a short stint with WNBC-AM in New York City in 1972, before returning to Cincinnati. He joined WLW in 1984, and last year announced his retirement after more than 30 years hosting the station's weekday morning show from 5 to 9.  Now, along with his wife Donna, he's enjoying retirement on their farm in Southeast Indiana. 

Jim Scott joins us this afternoon to tell us what's life's been like now that he no longer has to get up in the wee hours of the morning to go to work. We're also joined by WVXU radio and TV reporter John Kiesewetter, who blogged about what Jim is up to these days. To read John Kiesewetter’s story and interview with Jim Scott, click here.
