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, January 15, 2013

It's a bit of a theme show today: we'll talk about school safety, with an upcoming state summit and a move by one Central Illinois school district to consider arming high school administrators.

 

We'll talk about school finance, and the latest (desperate?) ideas being floated by District 186 as it tries to balance the books.

 

And we'll talk about a teacher who tried to show students that ideas are more powerful than physical symbols -- like the U.S. flag -- and how he may find out the hard way that he was dead wrong.

 

Listen live 6-9am on 970 WMAY or online at www.wmay.com
