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: Monday, December 17, 2012

If you think it's too soon after yet another national calamity to have a discussion about the easy availability of guns and their remarkable efficiency as killing machines -- and for some people, it's ALWAYS too soon -- then this will probably not be the radio program you should choose today.

We will have that discussion from every angle.  And while we will get into a discussion of mental illness and some of the other issues that may be at play here, let's not kid ourselves.  When someone wants to kill large numbers of innocents, there is one tool they employ above all others.  THAT is the issue.


We will also conduct an "exit interview" today with Congressman John Shimkus, whose district will no longer include Springfield.  He joins us live by phone after 7am.
