MAJOR CRIMES UNIT INVESTIGATORS ARE STILL LOOKING INTO THE DEATHS OF TWO PEOPLE WHO WERE FOUND WEDNESDAY NIGHT IN A PORT CHARLOTTE HOME. AUTHORITIES HAVE STILL NOT RELEASED THE NAMES OF THE DECEASED; BUT COUNTY PROPERTY APPRAISER RECORDS SHOW THAT THE HOME OWNERS WERE LISTED AS KEVIN KILLEEN AND DOTTIE STEWARD. AUTHORITIES WENT TO THE HOME AT 18306 QUADRILLE AVENUE ON WEDNESDAY AFTER OUT OF TOWN FAMILY MEMBERS ASKED THEM TO PERFORM A WELLNESS CHECK BECAUSE THEY COULD NOT GET A HOLD OF THE COUPLE. THE BODIES WERE TAKEN TO THE MEDICAL EXAMINER’S OFFICE FOR POSITIVE IDENTIFICATION AND TO DETERMINE THE EXACT CAUSE OF DEATH. INVESTIGATORS FOUND A GUN INSIDE THE HOME AND BELIEVE THE SHOOTINGS WERE IN SOME WAY SELF-INFLICTED, BUT THEY HAVEN’T DETERMINED IF IT WAS A MURDER/SUICIDE OR A DOUBLE SUICIDE.

Jim Sherwood serves as chief creative, brand strategist, lead developer, meticulous project manager, and station collaborator for all Skyrocket Radio sites and projects.

Jim got his start in radio at WLSM in the small town of Louisville, MS in 1988. Since then he has worked on-air in all day parts and has held nearly every other station position at one time or another. Jim has worked for radio stations in several states and for iHeartMedia (Clear Channel Radio), CBS Radio, Cumulus Broadcasting and a few small locally-owned stations. He even hosted a morning show on an aircraft carrier for two years while in the Navy. Jim has a passion for radio history, music, gadgets and all kinds of geeky web stuff.

After 14 years at Clear Channel Radio, Jim left the industry in 2013 to devote full-time attention to his company, Mediagin Creative, a small freelance creative agency that develops WordPress websites as well as produces commercials for radio and TV. After being asked by the Mississippi Association of Broadcasters to speak to a panel of small market station owners about the need for better websites, it became apparent that an easy to use and low-cost solution was needed to assist smaller markets in competing for online ad dollars. Skyrocket Radio was born.
