Hey, I’m Ned. Born and raised in Grand Rapids, MI and moved to Iowa to rock it out at Rock 108. Started my radio career in Grand Rapids and attended Eastern Michigan University for broadcasting, so I guess that worked out for me.

Hang out with me weekdays from 2p-7p on Rock 108 and we’ll chat about pretty much anything. However, don’t be surprised if I forget to talk on air because I am taking down Mother Brain in Super Metroid.

Grab a brush and put on a little makeup. Cause System of a Down’s hit album ‘Toxicity’ was released this day 18 years ago! This was the gateway album for a lot of SOAD fans…songs like Toxicity, Chop Suey, Aerials are all STILL PLAYED on radio across the country! I can’t really remember the first…read more »
Well now I have heard it all. Chances are you have heard about Hurricane Dorian, the Level 5 storm that is going to make landfall soon. Now, I personally do not understand hurricanes, how they form, and why they seemingly always like to hit Florida. I’m just a radio DJ that plays music… However this…read more »
Feelin’ younger in my mind. Chances are, you know about this game…and that is the original Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater! On August 31st of this year, it was released…making it 20 years old. In 1999, EVERYTHING was seemingly about skateboarding. Thanks to things like the X-Games, skateboarding was cool again. Grinding, Kickflips, Ollies, you name…read more »
