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!

Humane Society Brings Kitten To GRD

The Humane Society of West Michigan comes in every week and brings a super cute animal for a segment on our sister station, 100.5 The River. This week they brought in this little guy. His name is Mad Hatter and I fell in love with him, BUT I can't have any more cats... I have 2 cats and a dog already so I figured I would share this little guy on here in case anyone is looking to adopt a kitten!

Jackie’s Flashback Friday

I have a flashback Friday picture today. I stumbled across this old photo and I started laughing and couldn't stop.

I was at an indoor track meet in 2008 or 2009 and was sitting in my usual, awkward, awful for your legs, weird position.

I was listening to my iPod, probably Breaking Benjamin or Three Days Grace because that is what I normally listened to on race days, getting myself pumped for the 3,000-meter-run.

Jackie’s Former Intern Blogs Take 2

I can remember the summer I interned for "The Free Beer & Hot Wings Morning Show."

Gregg "Free Beer" mentioned the idea of interns blogging, and he was going to experiment with me and let me try it. I blogged for them once a week for maybe two months.

This blog I am about to share is great. I specifically remember it because the guys had a segment on the show where they talked about the worst jobs they have ever had. So, I decided to blog my worst jobs I had ever had ... and interning for them wasn't on the list.

Jackie’s Old Intern Blog Take 1

Some of you may remember back to the summer of 2009 when I was an intern on the Free Beer and Hot Wings show. They called me JMV, or Jackie Man Voice. A name that I really don't mind because it's kind of true. I was goofing around on their website the other day and found a few of my old intern blogs! HAH! Check out this one here.

New to Grand Rapids, ModBettie Pinup Boutique offers a unique experience for women to get dolled up, and have a fun photo shoot inspired by the 20's through the 50's! I was excited when the owners of ModBettie asked if I would like to come in and model for them. We had a lot of fun and here are two of the images I have gotten from the shoot, there will be more on the way.
