Hey! Writing a bio about yourself is always hard soooo here are the basics. My name is Jimmy G and I love my job! Having the ability to try and make someone’s morning is something I have a ton of passion about. You’ll hear almost anything on my show, trending news, local news, country music news, the weird news of the day, the national holiday & of course 40 minute Carolina Country Music Marathons! It is all about having fun, laughing, getting informed and enjoying the music! I also love to point out the ridiculousness of life!!
started my radio journey at West Virginia University, spent some time in Kentucky hosting an afternoon show on a rock station and now I am at one of the best and most unique markets in the country, Myrtle Beach. Growing up on a beach in New Jersey, It feels great to be able to work and lay on the beach in the same day. We have it made!! I enjoy being in the ocean, watching the Sopranos and cheering on WVU/ Philadelphia sports. I have traveled to many places but the city of Nashville, TN is my favorite!
I hope to see you out and about at all the LIVE events we do throughout the Grand Strand. Next time you see me, come say hello and I promise we will have an awesome conversation!
Kim is Nashville native with 20 plus years of stage production. She is joining us for the third year in a row.
