Cincinnati radio veteran Jim Fox (Allen Duane Pruett) has passed away due to pancreatic cancer. Fox hosted the “Q102 Morning Zoo” at WKRQ and programmed the station for many years, succeeding Randy Michaels in 1975. Fox later hosted morning at WUBE from 1992-2000.
“Jim was a success on the radio in Dallas, Indianapolis and Savannah, but was especially loved in Cincinnati, getting big ratings first on WKRQ and then on WUBE,” Michael said, according to WVXU.org. “Jim was a great talent coach and had an ear for hit music. Jim had a warm, low key personable approach on and off the air. It was no act.”
