Jim McGuinn

Jim McGuinn joined 89.3 The Current in January 2009 as Program Director and on-air host, moving to the Twin Cities from Philadelphia and WXPN. Ever since seeing the Clash during his first concert, McGuinn has been hooked on rock 'n' roll-whether he was working on radio programming, playing guitar, bass, and lapsteel in a long list of bands, or teaching university level courses such as "Rock and Roll Cinema” at Drexel University.

McGuinn has received numerous accolades for his innovative programming, including the 2008 Best AAA Air Personality, and being named the 2009-2013 Program Director of Year for Non-Commercial AAA at the FMQB Triple A Conference while leading The Current to win Station of the Year 2009-2014. He loves the smell of vinyl in the morning, and lives in Saint Paul with his wife Christine, son Jameson, and Woody and Webster, two gray cats.
