A ten-year journey of commitment, ambition and perseverance has paved Andre McClain's way to becoming the Ringmaster for the 143rd Edition of Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey® Presents Built To Amaze! In addition to being a Ringmaster, Andre McClain is an accomplished animal trainer, cowboy, rodeo star, country singer and songwriter, and above all, an admired dad. This rancher has been around horses and rodeos since he was a baby, and is a descendant from a long, distinguished African-American cowboy heritage that dates back to the early 1900's. Now in Ringling Bros.® Presents Built To Amaze!, Andre truly represents a hip throwback to the origins of a Ringmaster by donning a spectacular gentleman's riding habit and directing the performance, exotic animal, and equestrian presentations.

A LITTLE ABOUT JIM
Each morning from 5am-9am , Jim talks with them all, news correspondents from the White House to London to Baghdad; newsmakers from former Presidents to Playboy beauties; sports figures from Pete Rose to Marvin Lewis and actors, authors and activists. He's the voice of volunteerism, the emcee of choice for just about anything from Marty Brennaman night at the ballpark to a Bengals rally to a visit from the President. Jim is an avid golfer, marathon runner, the guy who will close your kids' school in the winter. And he does this all on 5 hours of sleep a day. Jim is the winner of the 2002 Marconi Award for Large Market Radio Personality of the Year. His show is produced by Greg Shurts.
