Jim Ecker

ecker_mugJim Ecker  has some big shoes to fill. As the new Sports Director for KMRY Radio, Jim steps into the position following the passing of the legendary Bob Brooks. Jim is more than ready, though. He has a long history of sports reporting and is a veritable fount of information on everything sports.

Jim, a native of Yonkers, N.Y., graduated from the University of Michigan in 1974 with a degree in journalism. He founded and serves as President and Editor of the MetroSportsReport.com, an extremely comprehensive website covering metro-area sports from high school through college and area pro teams. Jim spent 27 years as a sportswriter at The Gazette and was recently the information director at Perfect Game USA. He was named Iowa Sportswriter of the Year in 1995.

We welcome Jim to the KMRY family.
