Wake Up with WOOD all week long with West Michigan's Morning News!
Born in Detroit and began my career in 1966 in the mailroom at CKLW, a 50 thousand watt flamethrower that cranked out the top 40 hits of the day. After a number of stops around the country, I landed at WOOD in 1981 and started hosting the morning show in "89".
I did spend a couple of years in the U.P early in my career and that's where I met my wife Laurie. She's a Respiratory Therapist. We have 2 sons, Michael and Patrick along with 2 grandkid's, Alison and Kyle and a spoiled dog (rat and jack) named Calvin.
When not working we enjoy eating out with friends, good wine and travel to anyplace that's warm,especially in the winter
WOOD is one of America's great radio stations ...even though my day starts at 3am... it's still a blast after all these years to come to work.
If you're listening Monday through Friday to West Michigan's Morning News, you'll learn more about me that you ever wanted to know!
Most recent blog entry from Herman:
And while I have your attention as a blogger, please keep reading, for my presidential endorsement. Unless, of course, you're one of those people who believe celebrities should shut up and sing. Then please view this clip of me singing "Bird is the Word" and/or "Girl on the Flying Trapeze."
For me, this election is like the choice between store-bought ice cream (maybe even diet Ice Milk), and mouth-watering, homemade, unbelievably delicious frozen custard. How did I arrive at this conclusion?
This week President Obama was working hard alongside Governor Bruce Springsteen of New Jersey (boy, he sure has gained some weight) to help the people most in need. It struck me that the choice I'll be making Tuesday is like going for store-bought ice cream when it's obvious what you really need is homemade frozen custard. President Obama is like the delicious frozen custard you'd get at Kohr's. President Obama has the 1.4 percent egg yolk solids needed to run this country.
To everyone affected by the hurricane, I send support and wishes for both physical and mental recovery. And good luck.
