Jim Rich

If you’re a famous athlete in Minnesota, chances are Jim has asked you to go fishing with him for a story. Jim is FOX 9’s Sports Director and hosts our Sunday night “Sports Now” show among his other duties. He’s been on the Minnesota sports beat since his early days in Duluth, and has sat down with the biggest names around ranging from Rod Carew to Teddy Bridgewater. Jim lives in Buffalo with his family and we worry they don’t feed him enough….because if there’s food in the newsroom, Jim is on it like fish to a lure.
