Thank you so much for stopping by my page for a visit! For those of you new to WMUS, I'll give you a little bit of insight into who Mark Dixon is. For those of you who have been around for some time, you pretty much know everything about me. My life is pretty much an open book.
I've come by my career in broadcasting honestly, having grown up in Kalamazoo as a son of a radio disc jockey. My father was a DJ at WKZO and was the long time "voice" of TV Channel 3 (WKZO, currently WWMT). Years later, my career in radio began in 1978 in the small town of Ottawa, Ohio. From there I had a short stint in Lima, Ohio. Since 1988 my family has called WMUS and West Michigan home.
My interests are bicycling, deer and turkey hunting, bowling, golf, and computers (I've become quite a geek late in life.). I also enjoyed coaching my son in soccer when he went to Fruitport
You probably know that I'm not shy about bragging and talking about my grandkids, Katelyn and Brendan on the air either!
Her boyfriend of a year-and-a-half, Toronto Blue Jays catcher J.P. Arenciabia, popped the question yesterday at her family's home in Greenville, Tennessee. When Kimberly realized that J.P. was about to propose, she changed into her favorite pink dress -- the one she always hoped to be wearing at the special moment. In her room was a letter from her family and the bracelet her grandfather gave her grandmother when they started dating.
The couple met in February 2012 after a performance at the Strawberry Festival in Plant City, Florida. J.P. felt compelled to meet Kim after he saw the band's video for "If I Die Young."
A summer 2014 wedding is planned.
