Jackie

I am Jackie a Ferris State University grad. I spent my time at Ferris running on the varsity cross country and track team, Even though I am out of college I still am a crazy runner girl. I have done 5 marathons, and plan to do many more! I began my career in broadcast when I was 24 and interned at Free Beer and Hot Wings in the Morning. That is where I got the incredibly accurate nick name of "Jackie Man Voice" or "JMV." From there I worked weekends on GRD and Channel 957 for a while until I was moved up to nights. I hosted the nightly Rocktagon for 2 years before I was moved again to where I am today, midday's (10-3 M-F) I like to read more than anyone should, I am a musical theatre nut, I cosplay, dabble in pageants, and have a geek side a mile long. I am very active and I have a rare ability to go out and be crazy, and still get up hung over as all get up and go for my run... My favorite band ever is Shinedown I love them! Catch me stumbling around Grand Rapids at our many GRD concerts and events. Of course you can also hear me Monday through Friday, 10AM to 3PM on GRD!

Jackie Places Top 10 at Gazelle Girl Half Marathon

I think my body may still be recovering from this long weekend of running!

Sunday was the second annual Gazelle Girl Half Marathon & 5K in Grand Rapids. It is an all-female event sponsored by Nike to bring awareness and support of Title IX, a 1972 federal law protecting people from discrimination based on sex in education programs and activities, including athletics.

I am a huge fan of women's athletics and fitness, having been a college athlete during my time at Ferris State University.
