Pearl Street Construction Video Shows Drivers ‘Who Can’t Read Good’

Apparently reading street signs is really hard for some Grand Rapids' drivers.

Fox 17 shared a video of the Pearl Street Bridge construction that went down in July 2015, and it's a complete cluster.

It starts off with the “Road Closed to Thru Traffic” sign and then shows tons of drivers blowing right by it... even when there is a gaping hole in the middle of the road directly ahead.

Do you see your car anywhere in the vid?

Check Out WGRD’s New Studio – It’s Done!

You've heard us all talking about the new studio we finally got to get into this week, and how we're all getting used to it.  It's really cool, and really open, which is unusual for a lot of stations.

Our engineering department, Mike and Ryan, have done an amazing job with the studio, and things are coming together nicely.

Last time, we left off with the lighting going in, the carpet, and some furniture.

Hot Wings – Producer Steve – Johnnie Walker Paint WGRD’s Studio

In case you haven't seen or heard us talking about it, the GRD studio is getting a bit of an upgrade!  We're really excited about it, and it's fun to watch all the toys arrive, and to see the room get stripped down and rebuilt!

Last night, Hot Wings picked up some paint, and he, Steve, and I spackled (I love that word), taped off stuff, and got to work painting the studio.  Our studio walls were pretty...well...nasty.  After a lot of years and use, they weren't the kind of walls you'd want to touch.
