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)

Meeting of the Minds - Key West


Nov. 4-8, Key West, Fla. - Back again for the annual Meeting of the Minds madness in Cayo Hueso. Scheduled entertainment includes most of the Coral Reefer Band, as well as dozens of others. In addition to my 'official' MOTM gig on Saturday, Nov. 7, I also will once again be hosting (and writing the script for) the annual Trop-Rock Music Association awards show on Thursday, Nov. 5 on the Main Stage at the Casa Marina.

Back in the pressbox !!!


After all these years, I still enjoy sitting in a pressbox or courtside. I've been fortunate to be back in Packers_Vikings_FB1.JPGthe pressbox in 2015 at Miller Park for a couple series in April and for both AP and For a change of pace (and scenery), I've also covered a few Mariners games this season at Safeco Field in Seattle. Over the past winter, got to cover several Wisconsin Badgers basketball games, as well as the Bucks and Marquette, and a couple dozen high school events.

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.
