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.

 

 

 

 

 

Corrina

She may be small, but she sure packs a punch! It is either fate or an incredible stoke of luck that lead Corrina to her long career in radio – the jury is still out, but she knows her friend and longtime radio guy Jim Johnson is to blame. “Come do a voice over!” he said. “It’ll be fuuun!” he said. She did the commercial on a Tuesday and was asked to interview that Friday. They decided they liked her so much, that by Monday she was on air. She’s as surprised as anyone else they are still letting her talk into a mic after all this time. With a career that spans over a dozen years of being an on air personality and programmer, Corrina Van Hamlin has earned her stripes on commercial and public radio throughout Michigan and has been on literally every shift possible from mornings and middays to nights and weekends. She has also sat atop many a roof for charity. As host and producer of a prime time specialty show for Michigan State University, where she also served as the Training Director during her tenure, she was part of the team that earned the elite honor of being the Michigan Association of Broadcaster’s Station of the Year for a solid decade. Now she earns her stripes every morning from 6am – 9am by sitting across the console from Jamie “Big Dog” McKibbin right here in Jackson! She has too much fun to stop there, so she sticks around through the All Request Lunch Hour and straight through to 3pm every day! In addition to her radio addiction, she has an insatiable love of coffee and kitsch, microbrews and comic books, and rarely leaves home without her camera. You can find her at any of the usual social media watering holes. Feel free to follow her, and she’ll follow you back in a totally non-creepy way. We promise.

    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

    Cathy Walker
