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.

Cayo Hueso con Queso

Meeting of the Minds - Key West, Fla.

phip_logo1.jpgBack to Key West for the annual Meeting of the Minds pilgrimage. My "official" MOTM gig is Saturday, Nov. 1, with other "sit in" gigs scattered around town. On Sunday, I'm once again fortunate to be invited to James White's annual Songwriters' Showcase at Blue Heaven.

In addition, I once again privileged to write the script for and host the Trop Rock Music Awards Show on Thursday at Margaritaville.

Back in the pressbox !!!


I was extremely fortunate to be back in the pressbox at Miller Park this summer, covering the Brewers for AP, and other outlets. Now, I'm fortunate to roll the opportunity into the fall sports season, including several Packers games so far at Lambeau Field. Here's a link to the majority of my stories for AP.
