Jim Leach is a lifelong Springfield resident whose first radio gig was at News/Talk 970 WMAY — back in 1983. After a stint as a reporter at WICS-Channel 20, he rejoined the station part-time in 1990, and began working there full-time in 1995. A year later, he began hosting his daily talk show.
These days, Jim serves as News Director of News/Talk 970 WMAY & entertains listeners on the drive home with his unique blend of fiery conversation, news-making interviews, hard-hitting facts and unbridled opinion.
