Host: Jim Baines
Jim Baines grew up listening to ‘80s tunes in the coastal fishing village of Spruce Head, Maine. He arrived at UMaine in 1985, met his wife, Paula, and has pretty much stayed in the Bangor area ever since. While he makes his living as an information systems consultant, he’s best known in sports circles as a sideline reporter for Maine Public Television’s state championship basketball coverage since 2002. He also referees high school basketball, soccer, and lacrosse. Paula and Jim have two sons in their 20s and a chocolate lab puppy, Mack.
