The Fan Morning Show Host: 5:40a-10a /Sports Anchor/Reporter. Jim Colony has been a part of the Pittsburgh sports scene for the better part of 20 years. Raised in New Hampshire and a graduate of UNH, Jim broke into radio in 1979 and worked his way up to Boston where he did morning sports at KISS-108 with high school and college play-by-play on the side. Colony came to Pittsburgh in 1991 hired by WTAE, then the flagship for the Steelers and University of Pittsburgh. His Pitt Hotline shows during Johnny Majors II remain the stuff of legend. After a Vermont sabbatical, Colony returned to (now defunct) ESPN Radio 1250 in 2000 until abruptly going on “vacation” in 2009. He once again can’t wait for the alarm to go off at 3:00 AM! Jim and his wife Linda live in the North Hills and have 2 sons. Both graduated from Pine-Richland High School, then Chris from Virginia Tech and Pat from Kent State.
