Jim Melwert is the Suburban Bureau chief for KYW Newsradio 1060, based at the Montgomery County Courthouse in Norristown, Pa.
A graduate of Perkiomen Valley High School, in Montgomery County, Melwert has a journalism degree from Temple University.
His professional career began in the KYW newsroom, as a desk assistant and production assistant.
After a stop at WKOK-AM in Sunbury, Pa., Melwert worked at the Radio Pennsylvania Network, in Harrisburg, as a reporter and as sports director. He returned to KYW Newsradio in 2007, as a general assignment reporter.
He has won numerous awards in his career, including from the Pennsylvania AP Broadcasters and the Philadelphia Press Association.
Melwert is also a living organ donor, having supplied a kidney to his aunt in 2006.
That certainly hasn’t slowed him down. Since he gave up one kidney, Jim has done an “Ironman” (2.4-mile swim, 112-mile bike ride, and 26.2-mile run), a 10km swim, and several 5K swims and other triathlons.
Melwert lives with his wife and daughter in Collegeville, Pa.
