Jim Douglas and Kim Berk, or simply Jim and Kim, are the morning hosts at CBS’ Fresh 102.7/WWFS. The duo has been together on the wake-up shift for 11 years. In October, it will be three years for Jim and Kim at Fresh, after a long stint at Long Island’s KJOY/WKJY.
However, October is a million miles away. Just last week we reported that Fresh may become an FM simulcast of WFAN.
But before the rumors took flight for the male-dominated station uprooted at 102.7, FishbowlNY visited recently with the early risers.
One thing is clear, they enjoy each other’s company immensely, and bring that dynamic to the air each day.
“We get along tremendously well off the air,” Douglas says. “I think you can hear that on the air.”
“After so many years together, it just works,” Berk laughs. “It works if he lets me do whatever I want to do.”
“And she let me let her do anything that she wants,” Douglas cracks.
Off air, though, Berk says despite being great friends, they don’t socialize much.
“It keeps the show fresh,” Berk contends.
