Jim Maurice

News Director: I’m a lifelong resident of this great state of Minnesota. I grew-up in the small west central community of Maynard. I began my professional radio career working nights at KDMA in Montevideo.  Then, after a 10 year stint in Redwood Falls working at KLGR, I moved to St. Cloud.  I’ve been working here at WJON since 2005, and have been the news director since 2007.  The main beats that I cover include: politics, education, and local government. I'm also the early morning news anchor on WJON, and I host the News @ Noon show weekdays on WJON.
