Jim Hoehn: Home

CN_combo_vertical_resized.jpgJim Hoehn is a career 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.

During his journalism career – 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 release is the aptly titled “Collection Notice,” a selection of 15 original songs from his four previous recordings, “Silhouette of a Fool,” “Royalty Check Hotel,” “Deadline Penitentiary,” and “Playa del Pressbox.”

Cuts off each of the records received considerable airplay on Americana, folk and alt-country shows in the U.S., Europe and Australia. “Silhouette of a Fool”, under the production guidance of John Sieger, earned a spot on the Freeform Americana chart (Shepherd Express Review)

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

Back in the pressbox !!!


After all these years, I still enjoy sitting in a pressbox or courtside. I was fortunate to be back in Packers_Vikings_FB1.JPGthe pressbox in 2015 at Miller Park and Safeco Field for AP and As schedules allow, assignments also have included college football and basketball; high school football, basketball and hockey; horse racing; and several feature stories.

As I've often said - and continue to say - I still like doing this. Or, as Paul Simon said, "Still crazy after all these years."  Here's a link to the majority of my stories for AP.
