James E. 'Jim' Bohannon (born January 7, 1944) is an American broadcaster who has worked in both television and radio. During the 1980s he was a fill-in for Larry King when King had his popular nighttime national radio program. He also does much work with the Smithsonian Associates. He was inducted into the National Radio Hall of Fame in 2003. Bohannon took over as permanent host during Larry King's late night timeslot on January 29th, 1993 when King moved his radio show to the afternoon, and later to hosting CNN TV show full time. His radio program is called the Jim Bohannon Show, which is heard on over 300 affiliate radio stations nationwide and is produced by Dial Global (successor to Westwood One, itself the successor to the Mutual Broadcasting System, Larry King's original radio network). He broadcasts from Washington, D.C., where WFED (as successor to the now defunct Washington Post Radio) is considered his flagship station today.
