Senior Forecaster

Now in his 31st year at KXAN, Emmy Award-winning weathercaster Jim Spencer has been forecasting Austin and Central Texas weather longer than anyone in the history of Austin television.

Jim’s broadcasting career began the same month he started college at East Central University, in Ada Oklahoma. He spent two years at KADA-AM Radio before moving into television at Ada’s KTEN-TV in 1983. He became chief weathercaster at KTEN upon graduating college, and remained there until joining KXAN.

Jim has received national recognition for his work. He is a past recipient of the National Weather Association’s Weathercaster of the Year award. Jim has been awarded three Emmys and has been nominated for several more. He is also a five-time winner of the Texas Associated Press Best Weathercast award, and has been voted Austin’s Best Weathercaster 21 times by readers of the Austin Chronicle.

He is a member of the Community Advisory Board for Austin Wildlife Rescue.

He also serves on the Community Advisory Board for the Helping Hand Home for Children, where he has served as a “buddy” to abused and neglected children served by the Home.

Jim has volunteered as a Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) for abused and neglected children of Travis County. He has been a mentor in Austin’s Communities in Schools program and was named Langford Elementary School’s Mentor of the Year.

He represents KXAN in the station’s longtime partnership with Family Eldercare’s summer fan drive. He is a member of the Advisory Council for Travis County’s Coming of Age–Retired and Senior Volunteer Program, and has worked with the ARC of the Capital Area, an organization dedicated to helping area residents with developmental disabilities.

Jim co-hosted the Jerry Lewis Labor Day Telethon for the Muscular Dystrophy Association for 19 years. He emcees charitable events regularly for area non-profit organizations, and visits numerous area schools each year, teaching thousands of area students about severe weather safety.

Football officiating has been another of Jim’s passions. As a line judge and head linesman, he officiated high school football for 31 years as a member of the Texas Association of Sports Officials and Oklahoma Secondary Schools Activities Association. He has officiated NAIA and NCAA Division 2 and 3 college football games. His favorite officiating experiences include his state semi-final and state championship assignments, and playoff games in the Astrodome, Alamodome and Texas Stadium. He has been a member of the chain crew for Big 12 Conference officials during UT home football games, and has officiated scrimmages for the University of Texas Longhorns and the Dallas Cowboys.

Jim does have interests other than weather and football. He loves to spend time with, and brag about his nieces and nephews, Falicia, Krysta, Zach, Zak, Kandis, Joaquin, a.k.a. Broc, Jaxson, Braelyn, Zoey, and Kenedy.

His professional affiliations include the National Weather Association and the American Meteorological Society.

Jimmy Spencer

American racing driver

For the American football player-coach, see Jimmy Spencer (American football). For the English footballer, see Jimmy Spencer (footballer).

Jimmy Spencer (born February 15, 1957) is an American former racing driver, team owner, and television commentator. He is best known for competing in NASCAR. He hosted the NASCAR-inspired talk show, What’s the Deal?, on Speed,[1] and was co-host, with John Roberts and Kenny Wallace, of Speed's pre-race and post-race NASCAR shows NASCAR RaceDay and NASCAR Victory Lane. Before retiring, Spencer had a segment on Speed's NASCAR Race Hub offering commentary and answering viewer questions (on Tuesdays and Thursdays). During his days racing modifieds, he was nicknamed "Mr. Excitement"[2] for his aggressive racing style. Spencer is one of the few drivers to have won a race in all three of NASCAR's top series: the NASCAR Cup Series, the Xfinity Series, and the Camping World Truck Series.

Spencer's Cup wins both came in summer 1994 at the restrictor plate races at Daytona and Talladega.

Early life[edit]

Jimmy Spencer followed his father, Ed Spencer, Sr., commonly known as "Fast Eddie", in racing. Spencer started driving Late Models in Pennsylvania. He captured his first win in the Late Model division at Port Royal Speedway in 1976. He moved to NASCAR Modifieds at Shangri-La Speedway (Owego, New York), then branched out to bigger events throughout the Northeast.

In 1984, Spencer was one of the top contenders for NASCAR's National Modified Championship, at a time when all sanctioned races counted toward that title; after running over sixty races, he was second to Richie Evans in the final standings. When NASCAR changed the National Modified Championship into the smaller-schedule Winston Modified Tour (now the Whelen Modified Tour) in 1985, Spencer continued to run, and won the title in 1986 and 1987.

Spencer debuted in the Busch Series in 1985, finishing 19th at North Carolina Motor Speedway in the No. 67 Pontiac for Frank Cicci Racing, which was also his Modified team. The team ran twice in 1987 with a best-finish 36th, then ran the full season in 1988, finishing seventh in the point standings with 5 top-5’s and 13 top-10’s in the No. 34. In 1989, Spencer won his first career Busch race, the Mountain Dew 400 at Hickory Motor Speedway. Spencer later won another two that season at Orange County and Myrtle Beach, finishing 15th in the final standings.

1989–1994[edit]

Spencer's No. 88 race car in 1989.

In 1989, he moved to the Winston Cup Series, driving the No. 88 Crisco-sponsored Pontiac for Buddy Baker's team in 17 of the 29 races. He posted three top 10's and finished 34th in points. He then ran full-time in 1990, finishing in the top 10 twice for Rod Osterlund Racing in the No. 57 Heinz-sponsored Pontiac and finished 24th in points. In 1991, Spencer moved to the No. 98 Banquet FoodsChevrolet for Travis Carter Motorsports. Despite six top-10 finishes, Spencer dropped one position in the standings due to twelve DNFs. He began 1992 with Carter, but moved down to the Busch Series to drive the No. 20 Daily's 1st Ade-sponsored Oldsmobile for Dick Moroso after Carter's team folded early in the season. He responded with his second career wins at both Myrtle Beach Speedway and Orange County Speedway.

Spencer's race car in 1994.

Late in the 1992 season, Spencer joined Bobby Allison Motorsports' Cup team and posted three top-fives in the last four races of the season. He signed to drive Allison's No. 12 Meineke-sponsored Ford Thunderbird full-time in 1993, and finished in the top 5 five times, resulting in a career-best 12th-place in the final standings. In 1994, he drove the No. 27 McDonald's-sponsored Ford for Junior Johnson and won his first two and only career Cup races, the Pepsi 400 at Daytona, and the DieHard 500 at Talladega. On the final lap at Daytona, Spencer won his first career Cup race passing Ernie Irvan for his only scored lap lead.[3] He also won his first career pole award for the Tyson Holly Farms 400 at North Wilkesboro Speedway. Other than that, the season was a huge disappointment, as he would only score two further Top 10 finishes and finished the season 29th in the standings.

1995–2001[edit]

Spencer's 1997 Camel Ford

After finishing 29th in the standings in 1994, Spencer left to reunite with Travis Carter, who was then fielding the No. 23 Smokin' Joe's-sponsored Ford. He finished in the Top 10 four times in 1995 and in 1996, Spencer had two Top 5’s en route to a 15th-place finish in points. He fell to 20th in 1997.

In 1998, Winston/No Bull became his team's new primary sponsor and he was 11th in points when he suffered injuries at the Brickyard 400, forcing him to sit out the next two races to recover and fall to 14th in points. During the season, Spencer formed his own NASCAR team, Spencer Motor Ventures, which fielded the No. 12 Zippo-sponsored Chevrolet Monte Carlo in the Busch Series for himself and Boris Said, Steve Grissom, and Rick Mast. The team expanded to two cars in 1999, fielding the No. 12 and the No. 5 Schneider National-sponsored Chevy for Dick Trickle. In 2000, he moved his team up to Cup to run the road course races with Boris Said in the No. 23 Federated Auto Parts-sponsored Ford Taurus. The team ceased operations at the end of the season.

After a 20th-place finish in 1999, Winston left the team, and Kmart became the team's new sponsor, causing Spencer to switch to the No. 26 to accommodate the new sponsor, who was already backing the No. 66 car driven by Spencer's teammate, Darrell Waltrip. Spencer had two Top 5’s and in 2001 won the pole positions at Indianapolis Motor Speedway and Lowe's Motor Speedway and advanced to 16th in points.

2002–present[edit]

For the 2002 season, Spencer would join Chip Ganassi Racing and drive the No. 41 Target-sponsored Dodge Intrepid. He began the season by failing to qualify for the Daytona 500, then had a streak of four top-5 qualifying efforts, including at Bristol Motor Speedway, where he started fourth and was leading the race when he was bumped by Kurt Busch to win, starting a long rivalry between the two. After another DNQ at Watkins Glen International, Spencer was released from the ride at the end of the season, causing him to file a lawsuit against the Ganassi organization, saying his dismissal was a violation of his contract. Also in 2002, Spencer won his last career Busch Series race, the Food City 250 at Bristol driving for Phoenix Racing.

Spencer joined Ultra Motorsports in 2003, piloting the No. 7 Sirius Satellite Radio-sponsored Dodge. After some on-track incidents with Kurt Busch, Spencer confronted Busch after the GFS Marketplace 400 while Busch was still in his car. He was suspended for the next week's race, the Sharpie 500 at Bristol Motor Speedway while Busch was placed on probation. Despite the events that took place at Michigan, he had four top 10s and ended the season 29th in points. He was also hired to drive three races for in the No. 2 Team ASE RacingDodge Ram for Ultra's Truck Series team, winning the pole and the race in his second start at New Hampshire International Speedway. He became a part-owner of the Cicci organization that season, when he put Stuart Kirby in Cicci's No. 34 United States Air Force-sponsored Chevy, but that partnership soon dissolved. He continued to remain involved as a part-owner, when he leased his shop to Bang! Racing in the Craftsman Truck Series in 2004.

He began 2004 with Ultra's Cup team at the Daytona 500, but when the team closed down due to a lack of sponsorship, he replaced Kevin Lepage at Morgan-McClure Motorsports, which had also been running unsponsored. Spencer's best finish that season had been 17th at Dover after gaining sponsors in Featherlite Trailers and Lucas Oil, when on October 25, he was arrested after trying to interfere with the police, who had a warrant to arrest his son for vandalism. The incident cost Spencer his job at Morgan-McClure, and he sat out the rest of 2004.[2]

Spencer returned to the No. 2 Ultra truck in 2005. While he failed to win a race, he had nine top-10 finishes and finished 12th in points. He came close to a victory, however, in the season opener at Daytona. He held the lead late in the race and held off 2004 series champion Bobby Hamilton until just before the caution came out on the last lap. Assuming he was in the lead when NASCAR froze the field, he completed the caution lap then pulled into victory lane, only to be told by an official that, in fact, he had finished second. He also ran part-time in Cup, running nine races in the No. 50 Arnold Motorsports Dodge, and one race apiece for Peak Fitness Racing and R&J Racing.

When Arnold was unable to locate a sponsor and Ultra closed its doors following a fallout with the Ford Motor Company, Spencer began working full-time on the Speed TV network. He had run both Cup races at Pocono Raceway for Furniture Row Racing in 2006, finishing 32nd and 36th, respectively. Spencer then worked full-time as an analyst for SPEED TV on NASCAR RaceDay, NASCAR Victory Lane and eventually was the host of his own show What's The Deal?, along with Ray Dunlap in 2010. The show was cancelled the same year. His segments on the Tuesday and Thursday editions of NASCAR Race Hub were done from the studio of that show.

In his television commentary, Spencer talked about the NASCAR highlights while he often feigning sobs with his gag called "The Crying Towel", for which a driver gets the crying towel and a fake cigar if they complain about something that cannot be punishable. In 2012 Spencer named his "Crying Towel" segment as "(Driver) Radio Sweetheart."

On November 21, 2013, on NASCAR Race Hub, Spencer said he was still not ready to announce his retirement yet, despite not racing in several years. As he still has not raced in a long time (and still has not announced retirement) he has not showed up on NASCAR Race Hub since late 2013. Spencer has been inactive in the NASCAR community since leaving Race Hub.

James Lloyd Spencer (July 30, 1947 – February 10, 2002) was a Major League Baseballfirst baseman. Born in Hanover, Pennsylvania, the left-handed Spencer was recognized for his excellent fielding ability, but also served in later years as a designated hitter.

Early years[edit]

Spencer was drafted by the California Angels in the first round (11th overall) of the 1965 Major League Baseball Draft upon graduation from Andover High School in Linthicum, Maryland. After batting .292 with 28 home runs and 96 runs batted in for the El Paso Sun Kings in 1968, Spencer earned a September call-up to the Angels. In nineteen games, he batted .191 with no home runs and five RBIs.

California Angels[edit]

Spencer began the 1969 season assigned to the Hawaii Islanders, but with former All-StarDick Stuart not panning out at first base, he was back with the Angels by May. In just his second start of the season, he went four-for-five against the Baltimore Orioles.[1] For the season, he batted .254 with ten home runs and 31 RBIs.

While Spencer's offensive numbers improved in 1970, his fielding improved more-so, as he led the American League with 1,212 putouts at first and a .995 fielding percentage to win the Gold Glove award.

Injuries limited Spencer to 82 games in 1972. A month into the 1973 season, Spencer was dealt to the Texas Rangers with Lloyd Allen for Mike Epstein, Rich Hand and Rick Stelmaszek.

Texas Rangers[edit]

Spencer was batting .300 for the Rangers when he was named to the AL All-Star team. He had one at-bat in the game, and flew out to left field.[2] Despite the fact that Spencer committed just one error in 1973 and one in 1974, he began seeing more time at DH with Mike Hargrove assuming most of the first base duties. He regained the first base job in 1975 with Hargrove shifting to left field. By the start of the following season, Hargrove was shifted back to his natural position.

Chicago White Sox[edit]

Spencer was traded twice in as many days at the 1975 Winter Meetings. He returned to the Angels along with $100,000 in exchange for Bill Singer on December 10.[3] The reunion lasted only a day as he was sent with Morris Nettles to the Chicago White Sox for Bill Melton and Steve Dunning on December 11.[4] In 1976, Spencer had career highs in hits (131), RBIs (70) and stolen bases (6). He played 143 games, and only had 2 errors throughout the season, turning 116 double plays, good for a .998 fielding percentage.

On May 14, 1977, Spencer enjoyed a two home run, eight RBI game against the Cleveland Indians.[5] He followed that up with a second two home run, eight RBI game on July 2 against the Minnesota Twins.[6] For the season, he batted .247 with eighteen home runs and 69 RBIs, and won his second career Gold Glove.

Following the season, Spencer was traded with minor leaguers Bob Polinsky and Tommy Cruz to the New York Yankees for Stan Thomas and minor leaguer Ed Ricks.

New York Yankees[edit]

While backing up Chris Chambliss at first base, Spencer saw most of his playing time at DH in New York. He reached the post-season for the first time in his career in 1978. Spencer did not appear in the 1978 American League Championship Series against the Kansas City Royals;[7] however, he appeared in four of the six games of the World Series, and had two hits in twelve at-bats.[8]

Spencer's career high in home runs (23) came in 1979 with the Yankees, in a year that he only got 295 at-bats. He only had 85 hits on the season, 41 of which were for extra bases, giving him a .593 slugging percentage. Perhaps his most memorable at-bat of the season took place on July 13 against Nolan Ryan. Ryan had a no-hitter going when Spencer hit a drive to center field in the eighth inning. CenterfielderRick Miller made a diving attempt at the ball, but could not handle it. The official scorer ruled it an error.[9]Reggie Jackson officially ended Ryan's no-hit bid in the ninth.

During spring training1981, Spencer was dealt to the Pittsburgh Pirates for Jason Thompson, however the trade was nixed by Commissioner Bowie Kuhn.[10] On May 20, he and pitcher Tom Underwood were dealt to the Oakland Athletics for Mike Patterson, Dave Revering and minor leaguer Chuck Dougherty.

Spencer batted only .191 while in Oakland, and was released early in the 1982 season.

Career stats[edit]

In 1973, Spencer had a .999 fielding percentage, with one error in the 125 games he played at first base. The next year, he had one error in 60 games at first base for a .998 fielding percentage.

Death[edit]

On February 10, 2002, Spencer died of a heart attack in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, at the age of 54. The night before his death, Spencer played first base in a charity baseball game benefiting the Joe DiMaggio Children's Hospital in Hollywood, Florida.[11] He was buried at the Mount Pleasant United Methodist Church Cemetery in Taneytown, Maryland.[12]
