Jim Madalinsky joined 13WHAM and FOX Rochester in September of 2014 and is thrilled to now call Rochester home.
Prior to 13WHAM, Jim worked as an anchor and reporter at WTAJ in Altoona, Pennsylvania. Cold winters are nothing new to Jim who also spent time as a sports reporter in Minot, North Dakota and Sioux Falls, South Dakota. Jim is a graduate of Kent State University where he received a degree in Broadcast Journalism. From the time he was a kid, Jim knew this was the path for him. Whether it was pretending to do play by play in the living room or combing through the local newspaper, Jim has always been intrigued by a good story.
When he’s not at work Jim, a proud Pittsburgh native, is most likely cheering on the Pirates, Steelers and Penguins or checking out all that the Rochester area has to offer.
Jim thrives on telling stories that make an impact in your community and is excited to help make an impact in the area
