Jimmy Krenn rose from the ranks of stand-up comedians to become Pittsburgh’s premier comedian and broadcast personality, voted 14 times as the Top Entertainer in the City by Pittsburgh Magazine and nominated by BILLBOARD Magazine as one of the Major Market Personalities of the Year. Jimmy is recognized throughout Western Pennsylvania as the host of Pittsburgh’s top-rated morning show on 102.5 WDVE-FM, where his 24-year run made him a media darling.
Jim returned to Pittsburgh radio in 2014 as a weekly co-host of the KDKA Morning News, where he shares his humorous and unique insights into newsworthy stories every Friday.
He also makes frequent television appearances and does several Standing Room only concert performances yearly and has performed with Jay Leno, Howie Mandel, Dennis Miller, Jerry Seinfeld, Richard Lewis, Gilbert Gottfried, Tim Allen and many other nationally known celebrities. Jimmy’s act features a variety of impressions, characters, and anecdotes including his signature take on local Pittsburgh personalities, making him the area’s most popular and beloved performer.
Jimmy now hosts his own national podcast – Jim Krenn: No Restrictions – released every Thursday through Sideshow Network. The podcast features comedians Mike Wysocki, Terry Jones and special guests.
