Jim Clerkin

M-F 6am - 10am

Jim Clerkin came to Boston from Brooklyn, NY in 1996 to pursue his dream of becoming an accountant. Clearly that didn’t happen.

Jim graduated from Bentley University with a Masters in Business Management. He promptly set out to completely waste that degree while playing the hits of Kelly Clarkson and Britney Spears at Boston’s Kiss108 as a member of the Matty in the Morning Show. Jim produced the show from 2001 until 2015. Along the way he also picked up the title of “Music Director” for Kiss108, which is a nice way of saying that when you hear a song over and over until you hate it, blame him. From there Jim moved to Birmingham, Alabama to pursue a brand new opportunity. But we don’t need to talk about that. After a brief stop over in Philadelphia, Jim found himself back where he belongs in Boston in June of 2017 when he joined the world famous, Boston's Morning Show with Kim and VB, right here on WRKO.
