I never worked with Allison, and she never worked at the former Regent or current Townsquare Media stations, including WFGR. And she DID work at our "competitors". But at this point none of that matters. A person dies. A family mourns. Our prayers here at WFGR go out to Allison's family.
Here's what we know so far, from our broadcast partners at WZZM 13...
"Grand Rapids Police are on multiple crime scenes on Grand Rapids NE side" Grand Rapids Police Chief Kevin Belk tells our crew on the scene that a total of seven people are dead, including one child.
Or maybe as you like to call it, Buffalo Wild Wings! BW3 will be coming to downtown Grand Rapids! The local franchise president told WZZM 13 news that he is working on an agreement to buy the former Tap House sports bar on Ionia Avenue and turn it into a Buffalo Wild Wings.
The first day of Summer officially begins at 1:16pm today (6/21) and it's gonna be a hot and muggy day. I think we should celebrate by jumping into a lake. There is a chance for thunderstorms but some of the meteorologists are saying the heavy stuff may hold off until later this afternoon or evening
WZZM 13 reports the giant ArtPrize finalist Steam Pig is looking for a new home. The team that designed and built The Steam Pig in downtown Grand Rapids is putting it up for sale to help cover outstanding bills. The PIG which is around 36 feet tall is located now in the parking lot of the B.O.B.
And the first "Big" summer event is in the books! Festival off the Arts 2011 wrapped up Sunday afternoon in Downtown, and quite possible 740 million people were in attendance. OK, maybe not quite 740 million, but it was alot!
Congrats Grand Rapids! Rob Bliss' Lip Dub continues to garner acclaim both on and off the 'Net. ABC (Channel 13 here in West Michigan) has named Grand Rapids "People Of The Week" on it's World News program airing tonight at 6:30!
