Craig Russell

BCraig_Croporn in the wilds of the Amazon rainforest, Craig Ernesto Russell was raised on a diet of berries and tree branches while combing the jungle defeating poachers searching for buried treasure. Or he was born in Kalamazoo and grew up like a normal child. You take a look and decide what you want to believe…

Hi! I’m Craig, the host of the “Hustle” here on K105.3! I have entertained hundreds of people in over 25 years on radio stations all over Michigan and the Midwest. But who cares about that? I’m on K105.3 now and love Jackson! I have a couple of kids and am a huge Chicago sports fan. Yes I know, I’m taking my life into my own hands with that declaration. Please forgive me.

If you see me out and about, standing in line at Meijer buying milk or in line getting a coney at Marinos, say hi and we will chat! Or find me on Facebook or Twitter and tell me how much you miss the Big Dog in the Morning…:)

So I just celebrated my 16th year on air at K-105.3 and my 37th Birthday. A few facts about me are: I know everyone in Jackson and Hillsdale County by first name, I was expelled from school the first day of Kindergarten for TP’ing the boys bathroom, I actually should have been a professional Archery Shooter, My favorite movie is Dumb and Dumber, and someday I dream to own a small market radio station or 4. For now I live, work, and play in Jackson MI. I am married to my beautiful, smart, funny, brilliant, (did I say beautiful) wife Katina and we have a 7 ½ year old son Walker. I also enjoy (ok am obsessed with) Hunting and Great Lakes Fishing. Check me out of FB, I take quanity and not quality friends.

    Good Morning,

    I am a currently a teacher at Bertha Robinson Elementary School in East Jackson School District. We are a low socioeconomic school with many students classified as at-risk. Many of our students do not have positive role models in their lives, so we try to offer as many experiences as we possible can. We are actually having Our Career Day presentation On April 24. We try to gather individuals from all facets of society to volunteer an hour to speak to our students about their particular career. I am hoping you would be able to join our group of presenters. The presentations run from 2:30-3:30 with three rotations, so the speaker talks to each group for approximately 15 minutes. Then, a new group will come in and the discussion is repeated. Please let me know if this would be of interest to you. I know our students would love her hear your positive message. If you are not able to attend maybe you could suggest another person.

    Thank you
