Kim Carson

Hey Kim Carson here! I have lived all over this country but no other place is like Grand Rapids! I love West Michigan and it's the only place I've ever lived that I actually purchased a home. I am originally from Detroit and grew up listening to 93FM WDRQ. That is where I first met my mentor, Rockin' Ron Baptist! Years later he became my "life mate". He passed away six months after I moved to Grand rapids. Still miss him very much. Ron, gave me my first break in radio (at a time when women were not even on the air). I started on the air in Knoxville, Tennessee at the age of 16 (I attended summer school for 2 years so I could graduate a year earlier). My radio career has taken me to Detroit Michigan for 12+ years, Oklahoma City, Greensboro, North Carolina, Charleston, South Carolina (for two weeks until Hurricane Hugo moved in a took my radio station away), Milwaukee, Wisconsin and Toledo, Ohio. I love what I do because it gives me a platform to help the community in which I live. I love meeting my listeners at remote broadcasts and I enjoy chatting with them when they call me at 616-770-8200. Hope one day I might be able to chat with you and find out what you're all about:-) I am also the author of "Essence Of Life: A Compilation Of Story And Poem"  You can learn a little more about me at Faith Hope And Love Songs. Please join me Middays, 10am-3pm Eastern, 100.5 The River. Listen online too at www.wtrv.com ps Love it if you could join me for my weekend show too! It's Faith Hope and Love Songs and it's an inspirational, positive and uplifting show with artist interviews and positive music. Faith Hope and Love Songs airs Sundays 9-11am Eastern and repeats again 7-9pm Eastern. Listen in and I think you'll like it:-)  Wanna chat?  Here's my email address kim.carson@townsquaremedia.com

Good News! Snacking On Chocolate And Wine Is Good For Your Heart

Chocolate and wine, researchers now say, are good for the heart!  First of all I'd like to thank whoever is doing these studies.  Chocolate and wine?  It's sounds like a party to me. 

Now this is good news for most people but for people like me, food addicts, this sort of thing just doesn't work!  But a new study suggests that snacking on chocolate could help fight weight gain too

I didn't need a study to know this; my 83 year old mom has been telling me it for years.  She never sits down, walks 3 miles a day, climbs 3-4 flights of stairs, and doesn't need any medications.  A new study suggests that this may be one of the reasons for her good health.  The
