Tim Jimenez is a general assignment reporter at KYW Newsradio 1060.
Tim, a native of Lansdale, Pa., is a proud Temple University alumnus.
He began his career as an intern at NBC 10 in the consumer alert department. From there he came to KYW Newsradio in October 2007 as a desk assistant / service aide while finishing his senior year at Temple.
His first shot at on-air work for KYW Newsradio was for a restaurant podcast for Hearphilly.com. “Eat Like A Native” explored some of the hidden food gems in Philadelphia.
Eventually he worked his way up to become a morning drive writer, web editor, and reporter in October 2010.
Tim is a huge sports fan, basketball in particular. He considers himself to be a hoops junkie/historian and to this day works on perfecting his jump shot.
He also does color commentary for Philadelphia University men’s and women’s basketball. In 2011 and 2012 he was a play-by-play announcer for the Reebok Breakout Challenge, which showcased some of the best high school basketball players in the country.
