Who is Jim Teriyaki? I remember them playing the clips once on WRIF years ago, and talking about the real guy. Was he a local reporter?

Jim Teriyaki – aka M.L. Curly aka Jim Thompson. A former Detroit News employee who was revealed to be a prolific pedophile. It was reported that he would use his Dodge Viper to attract young males, among other methods. He would sometimes pay the teens obscene amounts of money to beat him sexually and then threaten to slit their throats if they did not cooperate. 

He was branded Jim Teriyaki by the show because he apparently after paying teens to beat him sexually, he would take them out for chinese food.

Here is an old story on him I found in Google News archive
