Introducing Jimbo in Stereo
JAMES E. MOTHERSBAUGH, Jr.
James E. Mothersbaugh Jr. is a seasoned stage and theater actor and radio personality. He has an impressive resume, including several degrees focusing on theater and broadcasting:
Bachelor’s degree in Mass Communications from Bloomsburg University
Associate degree in Broadcasting from the Williamsport Area Community College
Stage Performance credential from North Central Michigan College.
In addition to his education credentials, his experience reflects a life-long passion for live performance that started when he was in high school. Though he doesn’t describe himself as a strong student academically, Jimbo says:
I was a multi-sport athlete in high school, playing football and tennis.
In the off season I participated in as many plays, musicals, and live performances as I could!
Jim couldn’t get enough of performing in front of an audience! He participated in American Musical Theater in the early 1980’s. Jim’s passion for performance was so potent he planned to delay his senior year of high school to travel with the Young Americans. He auditioned for and was awarded a spot in this exclusive musical, dance, and theatric troupe that tours performing for audiences all around the world. The Young Americans invited Jimbo to attend American Musical Theater (AMT) at Northcentral Michigan College. Jim remained a member of these groups for several years.
Throughout college and afterwards, Jim worked in the radio industry in a variety of different positions: news reporter, DJ, and advertising sales. Overall, Jim spent 12-plus years in the radio business honing his now well-known radio persona, Jimbo in Stereo.
Pretty impressive, right?
But that’s not the creation story of Road Radio USA.
