Award-winning Channel 2 consumer investigator Jim Strickland is on the alert wherever scam artists lurk.
Jim's investigations have led to corporate shake-ups and federal raids on offending businesses. One of Jim's groundbreaking series of reports led to sweeping regulation of the city of Atlanta's car booting industry.
Jim has more than 36 years of broadcasting experience, having spent the first half of his career in Iowa. Jim is credited with breaking the story of Iowa's McCaughey septuplets and was first to interview the children's father, Kenny McCaughey.
In April 1999, Jim came to WSB-TV/Channel 2, where his first on-air story earned him an Emmy nomination. Jim has won eight Emmys, the Edward R. Murrow Award and many other awards, including being named a finalist for Journalist of the Year from the Atlanta Press Club.
Jim lives with his wife, Marie, in Cobb County. Their son is a captain in the U.S. Army, and is currently a company commander at Fort Hood, Texas. Their daughter works in finance in Cobb County.
