Ned

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.

When I’m not busy playing tunes on your radio or streaming thingy, I’m playing video games, going for a run, or watching the same TV shows that I have seen 400 times…Futurama anybody? If one would describe me, it would be…

“The guy that hangs out with you on the couch, drinking Surge while playing Super Mario Bros. while laughing at B Movies.”

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.

A Video Tour of What It Takes to Put on a Metallica Show

We buy the ticket to see the show, but how long and what does it take to put on a spectacular production? A metric butt ton goes into making these shows, so much to the point where I even lose track of what they are talking about. Check out these behind the scenes video of…read more »

My Time With the Great Vinnie Paul [Video]

On the night before I had to wake up at 4am to head to Cedar Point, I did my nightly Facebook rounds to see some terrible news. Hellyeah and former Pantera/DamagePlan drummer Vinnie Paul had passed away. It hit me like a bag of bricks…I DID not see that one coming, I don’t think anyone…read more »
