Besides my on-air duties, I also wear a couple of other hats ... like Assistant Program and Music Director. What that basically means, is that I've had something to do with anything you hear on 100.3's airwaves. So if there's something you'd like to hear or NOT hear - please let me know! You can call me at 313-298-1003.
I’m proud to be a Michigander! I love our beautiful seasons, the sincerity and determination of our natives, the hometown-feel of our neighborhood businesses. I grew up listening to
I'm presently WNC's Assistant Program and Music Director. Besides my on-air shift Monday through Friday from 10am to 3pm, I also can be heard on various commercials on radio stations in metro
Outside of the station, I enjoy spending time with my family making memories that will last a lifetime. You might find us on the infield at a Nascar race or Willowrun airshow, at a charity walk, horsebackriding or spending the day at a Metropark. We’re huge animal lovers and readily adopt elderly pets to love and spoil.
I’m truly thankful for the opportunity I’m allowed every day to play great music and share stories about our fabulous communities. I'm thankful you're a part of our WNIC radio family!
I was talking with a man while in line at the gas station. I got about 3 words out of my mouth and he commented on my accent. He was from California and totally thought I had a “Michigan” accent. I guess we all do if we live around here! I never thought too much about it before.
We don’t really try to pronounce the letter “T” in words like –
City (ciddy), nutty (nuddy) and even when we say Detroit, most of us leave off the “T” at the end. Same with Canton and Pontiac – where’s the “T?”
Or the “D” in Grannn-Rapids?
We have Michigan slang too like –
Up North: We never call it The Upper Peninsula. It’s either the U.P. or “up north”
Yoopers are people from the U.P.
Trolls: What Yoopers call those who live in the lower peninsula, because they live “under” the bridge.
Didja-eet (did you eat) or Imunna (I’m going to)
What other examples of the “Michigan accent” can you think of? Do you think you have one?
