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.

What If Blink-182 Sounded Like Korn?

It would likely sound like this. Mashup are always a lot of fun, but this isn’t REALLY a mash up in a way, but a dude on TikTok. TikTokker Zach MacLachlan (is that what you call them?) took Blink-182’s ‘All the Small Things and gave it the Korn treatment with vocal stylings and guitar work.…read more »

Scooters Coffee Opening 3 Locations in Cedar Valley & Independance

Starbucks & Dunkin aren’t going to be the only corporate coffee shops in town anymore. Everyday I drive by Starbucks in Waterloo, there is a line just crawling out into the street! It’s seemingly ALWAYS busy! Personally I prefer local coffee shops over the big name stuff, but another big name shop seems to be…read more »
