Jim Leach is a lifelong Springfield resident whose first radio gig was at WMAY -- in 1983! After a stint as a reporter at 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, Springfield wakes up with Jim and his unique blend of fiery conversation, newsmaking interviews, hard-hitting facts and unbridled opinion. Jim is a multiple winner of the Illinois Broadcasters Association Silver Dome Award and the Illinois Times Readers' Choice Award.

Today's Show: Tuesday, October 2, 2012

If you want to show disrespect to school principals, what better way than to deny them a pay raise AND a promised longevity increase?  Well, how about first granting the raises and THEN saying, oops, we voted wrong, and then switching the vote to take the money away?  Your Springfield school board in action... we'll talk about it.

We'll also discuss a proposed constitutional amendment on the November ballot that could have big ramifications for state workers and retirees.  And we're not done talking residency yet.
