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!

Detroit Red Wings Respond To Girls Tweet In Awesome Way

YES! The Red Wings are fellow feminists, and I love it! One of my biggest pet peeves is when women, and girls make comments about their goal being to marry/date a "insert sport" player. I'd like to think we all can aspire to more than that just because we are girls. Anyway this young lady tweeted my pet peeve and the Red Wings took the time to respond and I LOVE it.

It was kind of random, but I like bikes a lot and I have wanted to get into riding. So, I found a used Suzuki Boulevard 650 sport and bought it!

Free Beer and Hot Wings saw my purchase, and we chatted about it this morning.

Surprise Coke Bottle

Coca-Cola has a new campaign to get people talking, literally.

They are printing on their bottles "Share a coke with" and a name. The idea is you give the pop to that person and buy yourself another, in the end it's ingenious because people are buying double the pop.

Well, it happened to me! My girlfriend, Caroline, bought a coke and it said, "share a coke with, JACKIE."
