Hey there, I'm Shmitty! You probably hear me if you've ever called the studio, given gas prices or looked for school closings! But I'm much more then the person that keeps Gary Allen and Steve Kelly in line.
I'm originally from Lansing and I still pride myself on the 'cap city'. I went to Grand Valley State University for broadcasting. Go Lakers! I graduated in 2009 and after an... interesting summer job hunting, I got the privilege to join the mighty WOOD and wake up with two incredibly knowledgable, witty and always hilarious guys. I love working with this morning team and giving you the News, Weather, Traffic and Sports you need! And now I can give you a glimpse into my world, so check back often!
So I try to be a positive person. Truly! But sometimes there is something that catches my eye and fires me up to such a degree I have to get it out somehow! I was out shopping yesterday, at a store that shall remain nameless, and as I rounded a corner to search for the shoe section...THIS is what greeted me. More correctly, THESE as there were multiple.
REALLY?! It's barely the middle of September! I thought when the back to school ads started in MID JUNE it was bad but this is absurd! How many of you have already started stressing about your holiday shopping? Is it just me? I enjoy Halloween! And don't get me started on the excitement of going home for family time on Thanksgiving! But it no longer matters obviously. As Santa pointed out when he waved his hand to me riding down the escalator. YEESH!
