Janna

I grew up in South Haven, Michigan.  Gotta love the lakeshore. Still feel a yearning for the beach, pretty much daily.  Graduated from Calvin College in ’06. Started at Townsquare Media as intern several years ago and have loved serving in Production, Promotions, and currently, on-air.  Big fan of crime TV, my own rude and feisty cat, the beach (you may have thought I covered that already, but I really really love it, OK?), reading,  people watching , and my dear dear family.
