I am thrilled to be on 100.5 The River weekdays from 10am – 3pm! I have lived in West Michigan my entire life and am a graduate of both West Catholic High School and Grand Valley State University. Before joining 100.5 The River, I worked at other radio stations in Kalamazoo, Big Rapids and Grand Rapids. I have been married for over 15 years. My wife and I have three children: a 10-year-old girl, an 8-year-old boy and a 6-year-old boy. You'll hear them on air with me from time to time when they're not in school. I’m always talking about what’s going on in and around Grand Rapids. I love ArtPrize, exploring West Michigan and rooting for GVSU, Michigan, the Lions and the Tigers. Thanks for listening!

It’s Time to Put Education Ahead of Michigan’s Tourism Industry

Many Michigan public school students are back at school this week. Others will return after Labor Day as required by law in Michigan without a waiver.

The post-Labor Day law was created ten years ago to benefit Michigan's tourism industry.

As more days are added to the school year, it's time to waive the post-Labor Day requirement for all schools and put the education of Michigan students ahead of the interests of the tourism industry.
