Early broadcasting start

Rome started his radio career at college radio station KCSB while at UCSB, where he was Sports Director for one quarter, and at news station KTMS, also located in Santa Barbara. He eventually moved to XTRA Sports 690 in San Diego, where he started what is now known as The Jim Rome Show, or "The Jungle," with a loop of the instrumental intro of Iggy Pop's song "Lust for Life" and the instrumental intro of Guns N' Roses' song "Welcome to the Jungle" as the show's signature music. The show became syndicated in 1996. It can now be heard on over 200 radio stations across the United States and Canada. In 1998, Rome released an album entitled Welcome to the Jungle, which featured memorable sound bites and music from the show. This article does not cite any references or sources. ...

In early 2003, Rome was interviewing friend Mark Shapiro, executive producer of programming and production at ESPN, on his radio program. Unexpectedly, the two began to discuss a possible return for Jim to ESPN, and within a few months, Jim was officially rehired to host Rome Is Burning. Jim openly attributes that interview as the impetus to his return to television.


In July of 2006, Rome announced that his nationally syndicated radio show would remain on terrestrial radio instead of going to satellite radio. The radio show is heard on more than 200 stations across the United States and Canada and has an audience of 2.5 million.[4] // A satellite radio or subscription radio (SR) is a digital radio signal that is broadcast by a communications satellite, which covers a much wider geographical range than terrestrial radio signals. ...


Broadcast style

Main article: The Jim Rome Show

Rome's radio show takes calls, emails (formerly faxes), and text messages from listeners, and features interviews of notable people from the sports world. It is broadcast live from 9 a.m. to noon Pacific time (noon to 3 p.m. Eastern). This time slot is often dark for Sports Radio stations, and Rome allows local stations to give listeners a 'national perspective.' Rome's television program primarily features interviews with athletes and other people associated with sports, but his main influence both started and remains with sports talk radio. The Jim Rome Show is a sports radio talk show hosted by Jim Rome. ... E-mail, or email, is short for electronic mail and is a method of composing, sending, and receiving messages over electronic communication systems. ... // Sports radio (or sports talk radio) is a radio format devoted entirely to discussion and broadcasting of sporting events. ...


Rome rarely announces for certain what guests he will have each day, preferring not to "jinx" them and giving the impression he prefers to 'hunt down' interviews rather than pre-schedule guests like with most talk-radio shows. 'The Jungle' highlights the most recent players and issues, as well as Rome's 'take' on the latest sporting news. His abrasive manner of mocking and demeaning certain people on air has been criticized by some but applauded by fans as his unique "talking smack" air style. Frequently, he will "run calls" (hang up on callers, sometimes using his infamous "manual buzzer") if they "flame," stammer, fail to make a point quickly, or touch upon a subject that Rome has black-listed. "Talking smack," a kind of quick-witted insult and taunting banter in which callers take to task other callers or people in the sports world, is favored by Rome. This results in most callers quickly summarizing their "take" and "not sucking" on air, and can sometimes leave new callers and listeners unfamiliar with the show's slang, or "gloss". As Rome often advises: "Give the show two weeks, nobody likes it the first time they hear it. I didn't like it at first. Even my wife Janet didn't like it at first. And if you give the show two weeks and still don't like it... well, give it another two weeks." Stuttering is a speech disorder in which pronunciation of the (usually) first letter or syllable of a word is repeated involuntarily. ... Blacklisted redirects here. ...

He frequently references many callers and emailers in his "body of work" and openly admits that they are a huge part of the show. Many fans know that callers like Terrence in Sierra Madre, Vic in NoCal, D Heng from Creighton, Jeff in "Richmond", Silk Brah, Trapper in Dana Point, and John in C-Town not only frequent the shows airwaves via phone calls, but regular emails are a backbone to the foundation of his 3-hour routine. The most famous emailers like Dave in St. Louis "Non-Hunter", Prime Time Keim in Omaha, Chad in Portland, Mike in Witchitard, Francis in Glendale, Joe in Des Moines, Blaise in KC, David in Albany and Mike T in C-Town have their emails read repeatedly, even by guest host substitutes such as, Jim Lampley and Andrew Siciliano. They have said "The hottest topic in The Jungle is The Jungle". This article or section does not cite its references or sources. ... Andrew Sciliano is a sports anchor for Fox Sports. ...


Rome's brashness in advocating for the show in markets that do not broadcast the full three hours, or that tape-delay the show, is characteristic of the host's well-known self-confidence. He regularly encourages listeners to contact their local affiliate program directors (referred to on the show as "monkeys") in order to secure the show live and in its entirety. Rome has jokingly asserted that he never has done a bad interview, only had to put up with bad interviewees. Rome attends many significant sports events, often hosting the show from Super Bowl and Final Four cities. His range of sports topics includes the major four professional sports leagues - NFL, MLB, NBA, NHL, as well as golf and auto racing. He, however, constantly ridicules soccer and the WNBA, and used to ridicule NASCAR. The winning Super Bowl team receives the Vince Lombardi Trophy. ...

Rome refers to his loyal fan base as "the Clones." The nickname stems from the idea that their devotion to Rome, tendency to support Rome's "takes," and their imitative use of "smack" and jargon from Rome's shows makes them different from regular sports-radio listeners but all the same as each other. The uniqueness of this fan base is heard most distinctly when a "Clone" calls another sports-talk show and gives a "take."


A frequent Rome device is to read emails from the "Clones" on the air (usually purportedly written by some famous individual), and then express faux-dismay to the Clones for sending the emails. Some of the most recurring email subjects of questionable taste include emails purportedly from O.J. Simpson, Nicole Simpson, and/or Ron Goldman, which allude to the double homicide that O.J. Simpson was accused of; Mark Chmura, known as "American Chewy" on Rome's show, referencing allegations that Chmura acted inappropriately with an underage girl at a party; and Rae Carruth. Orenthal James Simpson (born July 9, 1947), commonly known as O. J. Simpson and also just by his initials O.J. and his nickname The Juice, is a retired American football player who achieved stardom at the collegiate and professional levels. ... Nicole Brown Simpson (May 19, 1959-June 12, 1994) was murdered at her home in Los Angeles, California. ... Ronald Lyle Goldman (July 2, 1968-June 12, 1994) was an aspiring actor and part-time model who was murdered in Los Angeles, California, USA, in 1994. ... Mark Chmura (born February 22, 1969 in Deerfield, Massachusetts) is a former American Football tight end who played his entire career with the Green Bay Packers (1993-1999). ... Rae Lamar Carruth (born January 20, 1974 in Sacramento, California) is a former American football wide receiver in the NFL for the Carolina Panthers. ...


Rome is also known for referring to various cities by sometimes derogatory nicknames, such as "Albucracky" (Albuquerque), "Bugaha" (Omaha),"The Nati" (Cincinnati),"Crackmore" (Baltimore), "H-Town" (Houston), "C-Town" (Cleveland, Ohio) and "SacTown" (Sacramento). “Albuquerque” redirects here. ...

A staple feature of The Jim Rome Show is the Smack-Off, an annual invitation-only contest in which the best callers (those who gave the best takes and/or smack, in Rome's opinion) compete to see who delivers the best smack. Fox Sports Radio host J. T. the Brick won the first Smack-Off in 1995; the notoriety he gained from this achievement was instrumental in obtaining his own show.[citation needed] The Smack-Off is an annual competition on The Jim Rome Show, held in mid-to-late spring and which takes up the entire program on a Friday. ... Fox Sports Radio, abbreviated FSR, is an international radio network consisting of sports talk programming all day, every day. ... J. T. the Brick (real name John Tournour, born November 23, 1965) is a sports talk radio host based in Los Angeles, airing weeknights from 7pm to 11pm Pacific time (10pm to 2am Eastern) on Fox Sports Radio. ...


Although he is over the age of 40, Jim Rome usually caters his show to listeners less than half his age. Adolescence is the main essence of the radio show, repeatedly marred with a juvenile 'manual buzzer', the correction of statements with a juvenile "ERRRRRRRR", referring to listeners as "Clones" and referring to the show itself as "The Jungle". Callers who do not have an entertainingly adolescent 'take' are not allowed on the program. A good example of the show's adolescent foundation is the annual 'Smack-Off' where callers compete for the most juvenile, witty 'take'. A frequent hypocrisy of the show is that Jim Rome will often tell persons who write to or call the show to "grow up" if he feels they written or said something immature, which is the actually the basic nature of the radio program.


Controversy and incidents

Rome gained notoriety for an incident in his ESPN2 show Talk2 in 1994 when he repeatedly called NFL quarterback Jim Everett "Chris" (after Chris Evert, the female tennis player), from the argument that Everett shied away from getting hit. Appearing as a guest on the show, Everett warned Rome about repeating the insult and then challenged Rome to do so. When Rome did, Everett overturned the table between them and knocked Rome to the floor while still on the air. Eventually a cameraman had to break up the scuffle. NFL redirects here. ...

In 2007, ESPN commentator and former soccer star Eric Wynalda lashed out at Rome's distaste for soccer during an interview with a soccer fan website. Wynalda stated: "Jim Rome can suck my dick! And he should be very afraid, because I’m the kind of guy, if I get too many drinks in me, I will club his ass."[5] Wynalda called in to the show the day after the incident, apologized, and explained to Rome that the comments resulted from frustration and were taken out of context. Rome accepted the apology and is "cool" with Wynalda. Eric Wynalda (born June 9, 1969 in Fullerton, California) is a former American international center forward, and the joint all-time leading scorer for the U.S. National Team (along with Landon Donovan). ...

Horse Racing

Rome also has part ownership in another horse, El Manuel. The horse won the fifth race at Santa Anita on February 25, 2008.
