Jim Hoehn: Home

JH_FBprofile_bigowl2.jpgJim Hoehn is a Milwaukee-based journalist/author/songwriter who has carved out a surprisingly successful niche as a performing songwriter since first stumbling out of the pressbox with a guitar.

As a career journalist - much of it spent as a sportswriter - Hoehn has covered everything from plane crashes to murder trials to the Super Bowl and the Hong Kong 7s rugby tournament. As a source of family editorial pride, he's also the guy who broke the Jeffrey Dahmer story for the National Enquirer.

His latest recording project, "Silhouette of a Fool," includes 10 original songs brought to life under the production guidance of Milwaukee's John Sieger. (Shepherd Express review)

And, check out some of Jim's recent sportswriting for the Associated Press.
