I am a lifelong resident of Grand Haven, a 1994 Grand Haven High School alum and 2000 Grand Valley State University graduate. Joining the WGHN family of stations as an intern in 1999, I have served as an on-air talent, reporter, talk show host and high school sports correspondent. Currently, I host "The Classic Rock Cafe," "In The Basement," and "Jesse Bruce After Dark" on "Your Classic Rock" 93.1 WMPA. The biggest honor of my career was the 2018 dedication of the "Jesse Bruce Kiosk" at the corner of Washington and Harbor in Grand Haven. I have two daughters, a chihuahua and a fish.
It's been pretty much rock and more rock since JD got into radio. From his air work to programming radio stations he's kept busy. Co-hosting with Bridget now is one of his greatest thrills since they have so much fun working together. When not rocking the listeners JD is an avid sports fan. Football, hockey, basketball, and especially baseball since he played it through college. Movies are his other love getting swept away with the latest action adventure blockbuster and a big bucket of popcorn.
Bridget took the college route to get in radio, graduating with a degree in Radio & Television. Ever since she's produced and hosted many air shifts playing classic rock to oldies. Bridget loves to be out-and-about, whether it's rooting for the home team, checking out the latest watering hole, or eating at the newest restaurant in town. It's always good beer drinking weather by the way. When it comes to Bridget's taste in music, she's an unapologetic Rockhead. Old rock, new rock, she loves it all.
McKenzie hit the ground running in a major market with her very first job over thirty years ago. Writing, producing, programming, and being a top rated personality, she's done it all. McKenzie's a big fan of the outdoors. Exercising, walking her dogs, playing softball, and spending time with her daughter. She likes all kinds of music but has a passion mostly for classic rock. Led Zeppelin, Rush, Eric Clapton, and Van Halen are what she grew up with so they bring back fond memories.
Bruce's 30+ year radio career started in suburban Philadelphia on dual passions...good time rock & roll and old cars. Now with a personal music collection of more than 60,000 tunes, a garage packed with a dozen antique cars, and loving radio more than ever, he's living the dream. When Bruce's not on the air, he's probably playing with his dogs and cats, watching a baseball game, spending time with his wife and two daughters, or most likely, out in the garage under a hood. You see, he really is radio's original "car guy."
Cheree started her radio career in the sunshine state of Florida 15 years ago. Since then she's been on the air coast-to-coast and in between. Cheree also has enjoyed figure skating all her life, and often skated competitively. She owns two horses that she rides and shows in competitions in English Pleasure and jumping. She's a die-hard NFL fan, one of the biggest animal enthusiasts you'll ever meet, and loves all kinds of music. Cheree's also known as "Super Aunt" with two nieces who are simply beautiful inside-and-out.
Since Joe was a kid, he's been in love with radio. He'd slowly scan the dial at night trying to find a signal from some far off place, and then anxiously try to figure out the city it came from before the static took over. For twenty years Joe's felt blessed to be on this side of the mic. When he's not working, he's working....as an announcer for minor league baseball. He loves spending with his wife and daughters, and his rescue dogs.
