We've all got that "dream job" right?  Did you know?  There are plenty of places out there too looking for that "dream employee" and they will be on hand coming up May 3rd at the William Burrell Multiplex in Muskegon Heights and they are coming looking for you! 

A note from Andy O - I would very much like to welcome Gabrielle Butterfield to the team!  As I began The Muskegon Channel, it was always in the back of my mind to kind of continue the vibe of Positively Muskegon but to expand what we offer a little and grow the reach of interesting things happening in and around Muskegon. One of my main objectives...as we grow....I am looking to people with NO background in media.  I want to make sure that as we build, we build together and we have the same basic common mindset. Gabrielle Butterfield had asked for a hand getting a blog off the ground, and I said, I'd be happy to, but have you seen this?  She took the chance to learn a little and grow here!  I am very pleased to say welcome to Gabrielle and I am equally proud to tell you..you're seeing her very first step into The Muskegon Channel!  We're proud to welcome her!  Take it away Gabrielle!

It's a yearly visit for me.  I was asked a few years ago to come and speak at a Career Day at a school, in fact...if you want to go back far enough, I was first invited to speak at a school during my days as an intern in Grand Rapids. Someone for Mona Shores had called and asked for a guest speaker about radio...and no one really jumped at the chance...because "Muskegon is just so far away!"  Ya, right...whatever.  I took the chance and came out and preached all things radio. 

Muskegon has long been a very proud hockey town!  We've seen everything in the workd of hockey going all the way back to the Muskegon Reds...Zephyrs....Mohawks....Lumberjacks...Fury...Lumberjacks again and now, the elite players in the USHL are here playing for their future and the hopes that one day, they will make it to the big show in the NHL.  We've had good years and bad.....we've had names and faces we'll never forget and we even hold the record for the most golas scored in minor pro hockey when Robin Bouchard dumped in goal number 683 on March 21st 2010.  A moment I was standing right there with Bouch for, and will never forget.

Back in 2015 I had had a job where I would use a program called Blogger to share something good about Muskegon.  The company has customers all over the country, so...the Monday-Thursday stuff was about the products and services, and Friday, I claimed for my own to brag up our town.  I wrote about beaches, ships, festivals....you name it.  If it was an asset to Muskegon, their customer base heard about it.
