Meet Tim Nixon
Graduating from high school in Traverse City and with so many memories of living in Northern Michigan, I packed my bags and moved away, without a care or a specific plan to come back. Afterall, my parents and younger siblings were still there so, of course, I'd be back.  And for a number of years, that non plan worked.  But as often happens we move further and further away from where we started and as those we would come to visit, were moving to other places, too, the distance grew.  Detroit, Chicago, Sarasota, Ft. Myers, Tampa, Atlanta, Grand Rapids... lived , worked , played in them all.  I moved back to Grand Rapids to be closer to my aging family so Northern Michigan wasn't so far away to come and play, and I did.  I then discovered that deep down,  I truly was a northern Michigan refugee, coming home.  My plan was to spend two years back in the North.... and that was eight years ago.  Friends, fabric and follies have become interwoven in my heart and soul, and I can truly say that living in northern Michigan, working for Lite 96.3 and savoring the view of the bay as a part of my pay, is only the beginning of what I could share with you.  I could tell you more... but let's do that when we meet... we'll talk further.

Spend Your Workday With Heather

Meet Heather Leigh
 I’m a Northern Michigan Native- born and raised in Charlevoix and now living in beautiful Boyne City with my husband of 6 years and my 3 year old Ella. Although I have had opportunities to leave the area, I just can’t imagine not living next to a beautiful lake and raising my daughter in a small loving community.  Fun fact about me, I graduated from Western Michigan University with an Accounting degree before I found radio. I have always loved music and could memorize the words to every song I heard from the time I was a kid, but I never thought about radio as a “career option”.  Now I really can’t imagine doing anything else. It’s cool because I see my daughter singing along to songs and I wonder if she will think it’s cool that her mom is on the radio when she gets a bit older. When I’m not working we are usually working on our house ( it’s been a bit of a fixer upper) spending time at the park as a family, taking our awesome dog Mitch for a walk or just snuggling up on the couch and watching some of our favorite shows. We just bought our first pop up camper ( another fixer upper) so we will be spending our time working to get that rolling this spring as we head into my favorite season!

Your Ride Home With Lisa Knight

Meet Lisa Knight
I came to Northern Michigan for my first round of radio interviews, fresh out of the Specs Howard School of Broadcast Arts. I remember driving along the bay, in the middle of the summer, along Clinch Park beach and the volleyball courts and thinking “Oh Yeah-I definitely want to live HERE!”….and I’ve never left. I love how every day is different in my job-the music is always changing, and there’s always something new to talk about. In my spare time, I’m a huge cook, and gardener…I get a real kick out of growing, canning and making my own food-even baking my own bread! I am also the human mommy to the best dog in the world. (No-really, I’m not biased or anything!) Odin really is a once-in-a-lifetime dog…I held him just seconds after he was born!

I’m always up for an adventure, or road trip-even if it’s just down M-22 for the day. There have been many changes in my life over the years, but I just can’t help feeling that I still belong “Up North”. I was born in Detroit and love to visit the city, but the woods and waters of Northern Michigan will always be the place that feels like home.

Pet of the Week 

Bendito…at first I thought, ‘What kind of funny name did they give me?’ When I found out it means “blessed” in Spanish, I decided it was a perfect fit, since I’m definitely fortunate to have ended up here. Everyone is so nice to me and I have lots of good food to eat and even some pals to play with! As nice as it is here, I’m hoping that there’s a family out there meant just for me. I’m only five months old and I have lots of energy so hopefully I can find someone who can keep up with my energy level. Read more about me here.
