Jimmy Bridges
WSB [Atlanta GA] 1940-1982
Jimmy Bridges died Jan 20, 2005. His daughter, Joanne Bridges Cooper, says (3/09), "Jimmy Bridges worked in various capacities at WSB radio and TV for over 40 years; he is in the Georgia Radio Hall of Fame and the Georgia Broadcasters Hall of Fame (2009). In addition to the many years that he was a radio announcer on WSB, he also gave the first television news broadcast in 1948 on the fledgling WSB-TV. Daddy had a beautiful singing voice (tenor) and often performed solos for church; he was an avid UGA sports fan. He and his wife, Jo, were married for 65 years; I am his oldest daughter; Jean is his other daughter, 13 years younger than I. Daddy retired in 1982; he did a lot of charitable work, especially for C.U.R.E. Childhood Cancer and Meals on Wheels; he also took care of my mother who was in very poor health for many years (that was basically the reason he retired -- I think he would have liked to have stayed 'on the air' until he drew his last breath); he always said that there were two things he wanted to do: fly an airplane (he was a pilot and instructor during WWII) and work as a radio broadcaster -- not too many people get to see their wishes fulfilled!"

We just added 3,200 sq. ft. to our existing home, including an elevator and love everything about this place including the setting on nearly three wooded acres with a creek in the back. We are international horse owners, travel extensively all over the world with London being our favorite city followed closely by Hong Kong, and we still have our condo in Chicago located right across the street from the new Chicago Trump Tower. I continue to paint in my free time, am currently writing a book that may never be completed, and am simply enjoying the good life, thanks to my career in radio. I have always loved radio and being a part of it. If you are interested in knowing about the best and worst managers, the best were Dick Nason at WSAI in Cincinnati, Ken Draper at WCFL in Chicago, and John Patton at KCMO, Kansas City and WTMX, Chicago, all talented, very nice, creative men. All the rest I would not give a plugged nickel for -- men who were unimaginative and total losers, as far as I'm concerned, who I feel contributed to the demise of radio and hold responsible for radio as it exists today."
