Jim Hoehn: Home
Jim 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.”
If nothing else, it makes a fabulous drink coaster.

Back in the pressbox !!!
(and courtside and sideline)
After all these years, I still enjoy sitting in a pressbox or courtside. I'm fortunate to be back in the pressbox at Miller Park and Safeco Field for AP, MLB.com, and a wide range of daily papers. As schedules allow, recent assignments have included the NFL (still love Lambeau Field), college football and basketball; high school football, basketball and hockey; Major League Soccer; horse racing; and 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 recent stories for AP.
