Meet Jim Murphy
Growing up, Jim Murphy never doubted he would work in radio someday. His career path found direction thanks to his high school’s low power FM radio station. Jim’s professional radio career included on-air positions at WCCQ-Joliet, WBYG-Kankakee, WBSW “The Bus”-Kankakee, WJOL/WLLI “96-7 I-ROCK” and WJTW-Joliet where he hosted the morning show and was the station’s Program Director. He hung up his headphones to lead the public relations and marketing efforts for Joliet’s Empress Casino. Upon exiting the casino, he and his wife Vicki – a long-time radio account executive – launched their successful advertising and PR agency now in its 26th year. Jim has been the master of ceremonies for many area events and has served on the boards of several local non-profit organizations. He and Vicki are 30+ year residents of Joliet who thoroughly enjoy spending time and money on their grandchildren.
