Tim King is founder, President and CEO of Urban Prep Academies, a nonprofit organization operating a network of public college-prep boys' schools in Chicago (including the nation's first all-male charter high school) and related programs aimed at promoting college success.
100% of Urban Prep graduates-all African-American males and mostly from low-income families-have been admitted to four-year colleges/universities. Tim also serves as an Adjunct Lecturer at Northwestern University and has contributed to the Chicago Tribune, the Chicago Sun Times, and the Huffington Post. Tim was named ABC World News "Person of the Week", Chicago Magazine's "Chicagoan of the Year", People Magazine's "Hero of the Year" and to Ebony Magazine's "Power 100" list; featured on Good Morning America, The Oprah Winfrey Show, and The Moth/USA Networks' Characters Unite series; and recognized by Presidents Barack Obama and Bill Clinton for his work with youth. Tim has completed post graduate work in Kenya and Italy; holds the Doctorate Honoris Causa from the Adler School; and has received the Bachelor of Science in Foreign Service and Juris Doctor Degrees from Georgetown University. In 1996, Tim became the guardian of a student orphaned when his mother died. That student was once homeless and now has graduated from college. Having a positive impact on this young man's life is the achievement of which Tim is the proudest.

The site was created by Web Designer Matt Lintz who built Salem-News.com to the specifications of Bonnie and Tim King.
Tim King - (former Salem-News.com News Editor/Writer/Photographer) An old friend of Tim and Bonnie King's from the time of their first TV news jobs in Lincoln City, Oregon, Jim is Salem-News.com's Chief Technical Advisor, and has contributed greatly from day one with his incredible set of Internet and computer based skills. BETRAYAL, written by two former MCAS El Toro veterans, Robert O’Dowd, investigative reporter and disabled veteran, and Tim King, photo/journalist and war correspondent, is a nonfiction account at two Marine Corps bases of injuries and deaths from exposures to toxic chemicals, murder, narcotrafficing and government cover-up. Written by two former MCAS El Toro Marines, Tim King, photo/journalist and war correspondent, and Bob O’Dowd, E-Correspondent, A Few Good Men, Too Many Chemicals is a thrilling and informative nonfiction account of contamination at two Marine Corps installations, Marine Corps Air Station El Toro on the West Coast (CA) and Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune on the East Coast (NC). Bob served in the exact same Marine Aviation Squadron that Salem-News founder Tim King served in, twenty years earlier. With their combined on-site knowledge and research ability, Bob and Tim and a handful of other ex-Marines, have put the contamination of MCAS El Toro on the map. Tim King's last email to David Bedworth: Michael Hjelmstad and Salem-News.com founder Tim King met in the Anbar province, at al Asad Marine Corps Air Station in Iraq, when Tim was covering Marine operations there during the summer of 2008. Pete worked on the flightline at Marine Corps Air Station El Toro in Southern California in the early 1980's, with Salem-News Founder Tim King. Sigismond has been a friend of Tim and Bonnie King for several years, sharing the common belief that circumcision is basically an archaic and extremely needless procedure that is barbaric in nature.
