The Jim Rome Show / Monday - Friday 11:00AM - 2:00PM


Jim Rome: Born on October 14, 1964, in Tarzana, California, Jim Rome emerged as a leading voice of the sports-talk radio industry in the 1990s with his brash, aggressive style. He survived a controversial incident in an early television stint on ESPN2, and became a TV mainstay with shows on Fox Sports Net, ESPN, Showtime and the CBS Sports Network Channel while retaining his longtime radio program.

Early Life

James Phillip Rome was born on October 14, 1964, in Tarzana, California. His early love of sports was fostered by his parents, who had season tickets for the Los Angeles Kings hockey team. The family often played tennis together, and Rome later recalled the thrill of watching boxing matches on Saturday nights with his father.

Rome played tennis for Calabasas High School, and after graduating in 1982 he attended the University of California-Santa Barbara. His grades occasionally suffered due to the extensive time he spent as a radio-station intern, but he graduated in December 1986 with a degree in communications.
