Jim Krenn is a popular Pittsburgh personality, comedian and storyteller.
Jim Krenn rose from the ranks of stand-up comedians to become a popular Pittsburgh personality and spent 24 years co-hosting the city’s top-rated morning show on 102.5 WDVE. He has been voted by numerous newspapers and magazines as one of the most recognizable personalities in the tri-state area, including being voted “Top Entertainer in the City” and “Favorite Radio Personality” 14 times by Pittsburgh Magazine, and was featured on the cover three times. He has also appeared on the cover of WHIRL Magazine, was nominated as one of the “Major Market Personalities of the Year” by Billboard Magazine, and featured in Pittsburgh Post-Gazette’s annual year-end caricature in 2015, chosen as one of the people who both represented and made an impact on the city. Alongside him was John Goodman and Diane Keaton (who made a film in Pittsburgh that year), and Pittsburgh native Joe Manganiello and Sophia Vergara (who were married in 2015).
As a one of the city’s favorite “yinzers”, Jimmy teamed up with Larry Richert and cartoonist Rob Rogers to create Yinzer Cards, a fun and humorous way to celebrate the city they love with Pittsburgh greetings you can send to all your friends and family. With each purchase of a card, 10% of the proceeds are donated to Animal Friends, a charity Jimmy has supported for many years. Along with cards, Yinzer Bars are available through Sarris Candies.
Jim makes frequent television appearances and does several standing-room-only concert performances every year with an act featuring a variety of impressions, characters and anecdotes. One of the area’s most popular and beloved performers, Jimmy has performed with big names including Jay Leno, Howie Mandel, Dennis Miller, Jerry Seinfeld, Richard Lewis, Gilbert Gottfried, Tim Allen and many other nationally-known celebrities.
