Christine

Hey! I'm Christine and you can hear me M-F from 10a-3p during your workdays. And for your lunch time you can hear all of your favorite throwback songs from noon to 1 p.m. BSB for life!! I'm 29 and originally from the Detroit area. I graduated from MSU (Go Green!) in 2010 and when I realized I was going down the wrong career path I made a switch and went to broadcasting school. For 2 years, I lived in Ludington where I was the co-host on a morning show and now I’ve been in Grand Rapids for the past two years and have loved every minute of it! Maybe except for the 10+ pounds I've gained. I blame it on all the amazing food and beer. I'm also part of the Grand Rapids Sport and Social Club (GRSSC) where I have met a ton of amazing people. My friends and co-workers make fun of me for being a General Hospital fanatic. I may be crazy but I'm not cat-lady crazy, at least not yet. I have one cat named Harlee and she is the love of my life. Along with my 3 dogs who all live back at home with my parents and sister. Speaking of love, that department is non-existent. I am the only one out of my friends who doesn't have a boyfriend, a husband or kids. It can be lonely at times but then I see a baby screaming and am reminded why I’d rather wait for the right time/person. In the meantime, I’m just enjoying all of life's blessings so far :)
