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. 

For more than 30 years, John Kiesewetter was THE source for information about the local media, keeping audiences informed about the people and projects involved in the entertainment industry through his column and blog for The Cincinnati Enquirer.
