Long time radio voice in Shelby and Christian Counties Jim Finks has decided to hang up the boots, and enter retirement. Finks has been in broadcasting since 1983, and will be handing over the reigns of the Newstalk WTIM Morning Show from our Downtown Shelbyville Studios to new host Dave Ball.
Finks started his broadcasting career voicing his own commercials, eventually transitioning into sports play by play. Finks shared a story about how after a local Shelbyville radio station parted ways with their sports commentators, the station owner contacted him about the job.
Finks said sports commentary came naturally to him, since he could always remember names and numbers.
Finks appeared as a guest on the Newstalk WTIM Morning Show live from our downtown Shelbyville Studios, while handing the torch off to new host Dave Ball.
