Jimmy Mathis has been a lifelong resident in Baltimore County. He has been one of the loudest voices for constitutional conservatism in the area via his radio program on WBAL NewsRadio 1090. Jimmy has also spoken to countless Republican clubs over the years making the case for religious and individual liberty, property rights and limited government. As a child, Jimmy had a passion for flying ever since he could first walk. It was a love that would land him in the aviation history books before he would hold a Maryland state driver’s license.
For his 15th birthday, Jimmy received three flying lessons. It was a gift that would lead to the adventure of a lifetime. During the summer of 1994, months after his 16th birthday, Jimmy departed from the Ocean City municipal airport on a quest to become the youngest American to pilot an aircraft solo (no one else on-board) across the United States of America. Twelve days and 2,500 miles later, he successfully landed in Long Beach, CA. It’s a record that he still holds today.
Shortly after returning home, while attending Towson Catholic High School, Jimmy began an internship at WBFF television in Baltimore, Maryland. It was an internship that quickly became a full-time job. Two years after starting his employment as a photojournalist, Jimmy won his first of two local Emmy awards. His first Emmy would be for WBFF-TV and the second for WBAL-TV. Subsequently, he would work in Washington D.C at the local Fox affiliate covering local and national politics, and eventually covering the NFL where he would win his third Emmy.
In addition, Jimmy began to focus on creating and producing original television programming through his company Mathis Productions. These shows aired on several of the broadcast stations here in Baltimore. Jimmy eventually found his way to the other side of the camera, hosting and contributing to a variety of news and sports programs in both Washington D.C. and Baltimore, Maryland. For the last ten years, Jimmy has been a voice for conservatism on radio and television. He has been unapologetic when it comes to promoting conservative ideals and America’s founding principles.
