Jim Donovan

Cleveland is a town built on sports talk. (Hey, if we can’t pull a championship, we’re more than happy to at least talk about everything else, right?) WKYC’s Jim Donovan, who just picked up a Greater Cleveland Sports Awards Lifetime Achievement Award for his years of service, has long been a beloved figure in local sports lore. His voice is distinct and crisp, the sort of thing that has hit Browns fans’ hearts harder historically than even a well timed Dawson kick at the end of regulation. We’d be a different and lesser town without Donovan’s presence, and when everyone’s reporting the same damn thing as everyone else, you need someone with perspective and passion. Donovan’s got that and more, and for that we thank him.
