I'm just a DJ that got saved!, is the claim of our Program Director and morning show host Jim Channell. In fact he was a successful and infamous DJ of great popularity in the Chicago area once voted one of the top 4 DJs in America but exuding such a negative influence on his young audience that his own younger siblings were forbidden to listen to his show. He graduated from Midwestern Broadcasting and started his career aiming to be the best he could be and to get into the top radio market in his hometown of Chicago.
Using a variety of stage names but finally gaining renown using the Captain Whammo alias, Jim got to interview and rub elbows with many of the rock n roll greats of the era before coming to meet the one who became his greatest hero of all; Jesus.
...
Jim believes that Christian radio can and should also be quality radio, and his desire is to see Praise 89.5 become the best Christian station in the world.
...
Jim - I've been listening to you for many years - even before Praise FM and am thankful for your encouragement.
...
Jim, just want to thank you for your constant enthusiasm & witness for Jesus.

Jim, Greetings from Zabul Province, Afghanistan!!!

Jim grew up in Chicago, 4 blocks from Wrigley Field. He attended the Pillar of Fire Fundamental Christian Grammar School, Lake View High School and Columbia College, where he discovered an interest in radio. After consulting with Ken Draper, Program Director of his favorite radio station (Super WCFL AM 1000) Jim then entered Midwestern Broadcasting School.
...
Jim had one goal in mind - to make it back to Chicago radio! His radio travels took him to WBEX - Chillicothe, Ohio; KCLU - Rolla, MO; Milwaukee, WI; KSTP - Minneapolis/St. Paul MN; and finally to WDHF/WMET - Chicago… all this before accepting Jesus.
...
On November 5, 1978 through a series of God-ordained circumstances, Jim accepted Jesus as personal savior as he cried out for forgiveness of his sins.
Jim immediately turned his back on Rock N Roll radio, even though he would eventually receive four big money offers to return. He taught at Midwestern Broadcasting School for $6/hour for 2 ½ years as he was being disciple by Pastors-in-training at Moody Bible Institute.
In 1981, God opened a door for Jim to begin his Christian radio ministry. He has worked at WCRM - Dundee, IL; WCFL - Chicago (when it was a Christian station for a time); WAYJ - Ft. Myers, FL; World Harvest Radio WHME - South Bend, IN; and now since 1998 as Morning Host at Praise FM (WSRX) in Naples, FL.
Some of the highlights from Jim's Christian radio days include: Programming WCFL - Chicago to have more listeners during music hours than any other Christian station in America; recording "Christian Countdown America" for 10 years (and seeing over 3,000 souls won for the Lord in that time); becoming the very first Program Director in the history of the WAY-FM ministries; programming WAYJ - Ft. Myers, Fl to the highest "hooper" ratings in their history; sharing Jesus on the air since 1998 at Praise FM (WSRX) - Naples, FL; and in February 2006 at God's direction, started the world's first Christian Oldies program, "Classic Christian Gold. Through this ministry he shares Jesus in Africa, Kenya, New Zealand, the Phillipines, France, the UK, Alaska, Canada, Puerto Rico, Haiti and the U.S.A.

We had a blast and working with Jim was a trip! I am so glad he's still in the greater SWFLA market and been drivin' limos and doing mornings on Praise FM... If I am 51, he's in his 60s and still going strong.. You can knock him down, but he get's right back up...
