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!

Fun at Sun of A Beach Festival!

On Friday was the Sun of a Beach Festival, a sweet concert outside in our parking lot. We even brought in the sand and a pontoon boat!

It was the coolest beach party right downtown Grand Rapids!

I had rehearsal for "Sleeping Beauty," so I didn't plan on attending. But things took a dramatic turn, though, and I ended up double-fisting PBRs in a hoodie and running shorts.

Check out some photos from the night!

Comedian Iliza Shlesinger Talks Girls’ Nights Out [Video]

This is great!

This actress-comedian, Iliza Shlesinger, sums up the awfulness that can be a girls' night out all in five minutes.

The video really starts getting good around 2 minutes, if you want to just skip the beginning. I myself am a fan of girls' night out. I normally have some fun, but it truly is hilarious watching this girl describe it!

SPCA worker Lisa Ladyman gives Obie, a domestic shorthaired cat, some attention at the Sacramento SPCA February 1, 2008 in Sacramento, California. Obie is one of many dogs and cats who were either abandoned or surrendered to many SPCA and county shelters nationwide by their owners because they have gone through home foreclosures and had to move. In December 2007 the amount of pets being dropped off whose owners listed moving as a reason more than doubled from that of a year ago, according the Sacramento SPCA records.

Bad-Ass Bitches of Books — Episode 1 [Video]

I love to read. When I first got into radio, Free Beer told me I should practice interviewing.

So, I started to reach out to my favorite authors and interview them for a self-run podcast I was doing.

Anyway, I was on a commercial break a few days ago and Producer Joe of "The Free Beer & Hot Wings Morning Show" came in and asked what I was reading.
