Jim Hoffer
Jim Hoffer joined Channel 7's Eyewitness News Investigative Team in June 1998. Since then his work has led to changes in the law, the imprisonment of corrupt individuals, and sweeping changes in security on both the state and federal levels.

Throughout his broadcast career, Jim has been awarded the Emmy numerous times. He was honored with the national Edward R. Murrow Award for his series of investigative reports on the huge utility company, Con Ed. And Jim is the recipient of Columbia University's prestigious DuPont Award for exposing lax security at the nation's naval bases.

Jim's undercover investigations led New York lawmakers to close the state's gun show loophole. His reports into aviation mishaps led to Congressional hearings on stricter English testing for foreign airline pilots. And the Connecticut Legislature changed their state law governing mental competency to stand trial following a series of reports which led to the re-arrest and imprisonment of a convicted murderer.

Jim graduated from Temple University in Philadelphia. He is married with two children.
