Hello West Michigan I'm Steve Kelly the co-host and sports guy on NewsRadio WOOD 1300. I've been doing radio 1983 and here in Grand Rapids since 1996. I graduated from Michigan State University in 1987 with a degree in telecommunications. I did however grow up a Michigan fan so I promise not to be too bias!
I'm a family man, proud to be married to Sandy for 21 years. She's a special ed teacher for Grand Rapids. We've been blessed with two red-headed blue eyed girls, Caitlin 17 and Madison 14. When we meet, ask to see pictures.

A Los Angeles restaurant owner is sick of seeing customers spend more time with their cell phones than their dinner companions … so he's offering a cheaper meal to anyone willing to put the phone down. Patrons who check their phones at the door of Eva Restaurant get a 5% discount. "For us, it's really not about people disrupting other guests. Eva is home, and we want to create that environment of home, and we want people to connect again," owner Mark Gold tells KPCC. "It's about two people sitting together and just connecting, without the distraction of a phone."
Gold adds that he himself is guilty of using his cell phone as "part of the table setting" these days. "Every table you look at, it's a wine glass, the silverware and the cell phone," he says. But his idea is catching on, with just under half of his customers accepting the offer.
