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!

Dumb Things My Friends And I Do

I admit that I am a nerd. A typical Friday night for me is Mario Kart and beer... or a group of people playing Elder Sign and again, beer. One thing my friends and I do that is just stupid-er than stupid is called CAPS... I will tell you about this time honored tradition, but no laughing...

Walking On Lake Michigan

It's all over the news, and all you need to do is walk outside to know, it is cold outside. This polar vortex we keep experiencing has frozen over lake Michigan. The first time the lake has been frozen in years! This past weekend I went up to Grand Haven with my husband and some friends and we walked on the lake, it was VERY cool. There are massive ice blocks all over. If you get a chance to see it before it dethaws I recommend it.

Jackie Throws Taco at New Guy’s Face

We have a new guy here at the office. You may have heard him a few times in the afternoon, John Walker.

I was eating some Taco Bell for lunch (delicious), when I got the idea, how funny would it be to throw a taco in his face. I started laughing uncontrollably at the idea alone.

So, then I decided I am definitely going to do this. So I did. Here is the video!

Jackie’s Intern-View From Free Beer and Hot Wings

There was a time, not so long ago that I wasn't just "Jackie" I was Jackie Man Voice, or JMV... I interned for Free Beer And Hot Wings back in 2009, for about 1 year before I was asked to step up and take over weekends on GRD. Interning for the guys is an experience that is for sure, and I stumbled upon this the other day that sums up that experience.

Awesome Cosplay Before and After Photos

Cosplay photographer David Love keeps himself busy not just photographing people's magnificent costumes, but artfully creating the superhero world on Photoshop.

Unlike most cosplayers (like myself!), David doesn't just photograph the costume on someone in a lame parking lot across from a grocery store. He shoots in studio, and then through a lot of tedious work creates the world around the picture.

Ben & Jerry’s Introduces New Ice Cream Flavors

This is going to be the DEATH of me. I can't believe no one has thought of it before this.

Ben & Jerry's new ice cream endeavor is introducing new "core" flavors, as in its ice cream with a core in the middle of something delicious. They include flavors such as peanut butter fudge, where it's peanut butter ice cream with this middle core of pure fudge.

Taco Bell Announces New Breakfast Menu!

Taco Bell is easily stealing this idea from me.

Listen to this: Just a few months ago, I was up super early driving to work and I was hungry. I passed a Taco Bell and I said to myself, "How great would it be to have breakfast at Taco Bell?"

Well, they now have it!
