JIM BYARD tells ALL ACCESS, "I love what I do, and I love the people I work with! After 36 years I find that I'm still learning, and that's what keeps me going!"
WEJZ OM CHUCK BECK tells ALL ACCESS, "JIM has been here 36 years and he works 10 to 14 hours a day until the job is done. He only takes one or two days of vacation a year. He loves what he does for WEJZ and our three other stations in the RENDA/JACKSONVILLE cluster. He’s a valuable part of our morning show and is one of the hardest working people I’ve ever seen. Plus, he’s one of the nicest guys you will ever meet."
